I have seen this a couple of times with Dell and AST computers at customer sites.
Most often its a hardware problem.
It could be a cabling problem or if you are using different kind of SCSI devices eg. SCSI-1,SCSI-2, FW etc. this problem could occur. It ccan also be a problem with your terminator.

This can be caused by the SCSI controller's bios, the hard drive's firmware, the SCSI driver, or cabling and termination. The first thing to do would be to contact the SCSI controller's vendor for a bios and driver update (and of course, verify that cabling and termination is correct).

I had the same problem:
1.) On a Compaq Proliant 800. 2.) On a IBM Netfinity 3500
On both machines the first scsi id was the tapestreamer (HP surestor 24 DAT) and the second id was the HDD.
On my compaq the system would even hang. BSOD.
On yhe IBM the drive could not be mounted. After changing the SCSI-id I had the same problem. In the SCSI-BIOS I marked the item Auto-start and the problem was solved.
