In general, non-Oxford bridge chipsets have a lot of trouble with OS X (it's not so much SuperDuper!, since we're not operating at the hardware level, but rather the FireWire kernel extension inside OSX itself).

These problems can manifest themselves in lots of annoying ways, including hung copies, failed boots, I/O errors, etc.

One of the differences between your two drives could be the firmware installed: it's possible that Initio has improved their compatibility in later releases.

But, if at all possible, get a drive with an Oxford chipset... in my experience, they work a lot better.
