Try reversing the cable to the drive (pin 1 at the wrong side). At
least that's what happened to mine... Now it apparently works.
The mainboard does not have a floppy controller, so I use an SCSI
floppy drive, it is working with a floppy disk inserted.
A SCSI floppy-drive? Wow, I don't remember ever seeing one of those.
Me neither, didn't even know they existed. over USB, yes, I knew, but
never handled one.
I've worked with SCSI floppies back in the early 90's. Not on PCs
though. I doubt seriously that the Linux kernel knows how to handle
these devices properly.
You say you have several machines doing this. Have you ever, on any
Linux machine, actually been able to use these SCSI floppy drives?
