1581 problem

I've got an issue with a 1581 drive, and I'm hoping one of you can help 

I have two 1581's...  Both of them have JiffyDOS installed.  One works 
flawlessly...  The other one, not so much...  This problem drive will read, 
write, and format just fine.  But every so often, when sending a load, save, 
or DOS command, it'll respond with a DRIVE NOT READY error.  Every time this 
happens, I eject the disk and reinsert it, and then it continues to work 
just fine.  I've tried swapping out the power supply on this drive, but that 
doesn't seem to fix the problem.  Any ideas?
