This is symptomatic of improper timing of signals.
Can you toss some nops into the lowest level routines, and stretch out the
setup and hold times?

It could be bounce and ringing on the cable.
A quick check would be to add a series network of 0.1uF and 120 ohm
resistors to each signal line.
This won't be a perfect match, but it's hard to measure cable impedance
through email :)

Got a need to read Bar codes?  http://www.barcodechip.com
Bi-directional read of UPC-A, UPC-E, EAN-8, EAN-13, JAN, and Bookland, with
two or five digit supplemental codes, in an 8 pin chip, with NO external parts.
