One of the differences between your two drives could be the firmware installed: it's possible that Initio has improved their compatibility in later releases.

But, if at all possible, get a drive with an Oxford chipset... in my experience, they work a lot better.
Thanks! I'm not sure it'll be easy to determine the chipset in advance of purchase (particularly when buying an enclosure only), but it's good information. Thanks again.
