No I disagree. Digital may not need to distinguish but a background
maintenance sniffer in someone else's system may need to if a malicious utility
breaks the warranty by using the new command. That was why I suggested the
slight alteration of the additional sense information. I understand that the
drive maker could discover the culprit after the drive is returned but this is
Yes Write Long has the same problem and has never been looked on with favor. I
