Subject: [gentoo-user] smartctl and external hard drives
Date: Wed, 20 Mar 2013 22:55:47
1 I have a couple of external hard drives -- one is a 1.5t disk which has
2 failed and the other is a brand new Seagate 3t disk -- both in USB
3 enclosures one a Roseweil USB 3 and the other one a Startech USB 3.
4 When I run smartctl against them, the newer one gives a serial number
5 which Seagate says is not correct, and I get the message from both that
6 Smart is not supported. I am running unstable with kernel 3.6.2-gentoo.
9 Anyone know what is going on here?
11 Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
