The Magicstor 2.2G drive is not compliant with the CompactFlash ATA
specs. (IOCS16 hardwired to 0), that doesn't matter on the net4801, but
stop it from working on the net45xx.
Anyway, I have one of those drives here, it also crashed after short use
so I declared it to be a piece of s***. Use Hitachi drives instead....
