problems mounting iso9660 cd's with new mcdx drive

hello everybody,

i have a mitsumi-fx001D cdrom drive and
although the new revision of the mcdx driver (as of 1.99.3 ?)
works perfectly with audio cds (thats why i dumped the old
mcd driver), i've not been able to mount any
iso9660 cd-rom (and i've tried quite a few).

i always get (in syslog):
May 14 16:09:50 rincewind kernel: mcdx: transfer timeout
May 14 16:09:55 rincewind kernel: mcdx: transfer timeout
May 14 16:10:02 rincewind kernel: mcdx: error in command 0xc2

followed by
mount: /dev/mcdx0: can't read superblock
from the mount command.

there have been problems with the 1.9 revision as well, but this
is definitely worse.
