It sounds like you have the buggy ROM. If you upgrade the ROM, the 1571
drive should work fine. I experienced the same problem before upgrading it
with a JiffyDOS kernal ROM.

I have a CBM 1571 drive to my C128. It seems to have some trouble reading
single sided disks. It does work, but it spends an awful long time reading
before it actually reads the directory. Double sided disks are handled

Is this normal? Is it harmful for the drive? What can I do to fix this?
