I've had very good luck cloning scsi drives with non standard sector
sizes using linux. I did it all from the command line using the "sg"
device interface. It does the reads "by hand" so it's a little slow but
it works fine. I can dig up the command line I used if you need.
I would set up linux box with a good scsi card if I were you.
