Description

The Maxtor M3 2,5" 4TB external HDD is listed as supported: https://www.smartmontools.org/wiki/Supported_USB-Devices

I tested:

sudo smartctl -a /dev/sdb
smartctl 6.6 2016-05-31 r4324 [x86_64-linux-4.15.0-33-generic] (local build)

Should work since r4685 which was merged in r4692, see ticket #1077.
Please run update_smart_drivedb or download the drive database manually.

In UAS is enabled, Linux rejects SAT ATA pass-through to Seagate USB devices. See tickets #971 and #1069 and USB wiki page for details.

Same error with the current version.

Tested the with scsi (#1069), but it is still not working with the upstream version.

Can not activate smart?

This is as expected if UAS transfer mode is enabled, see comment above.

Replying to Christian Franke:

This is as expected if UAS transfer mode is enabled, see comment above.

Can you provide an example for blacklisting uas.

from dmesg output:

Kernel command line: BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz-4.15.0-34-generic root=UUID*** ro splash quiet vt.handoff=1 uas.blacklist=yes
uas: unknown parameter 'blacklist' ignored

The kernel parameter 'usb_storage.quirks=0bc2:61b7' does not work as well.

AFAIK (not tested):

  • usb_storage.quirks=0bc2:61b7:u disables UAS transfer mode,
  • usb_storage.quirks=0bc2:61b7: disables all quirks.

Both should enable SAT ATA pass-through. The latter might be risky as kernel developers disabled it in UAS mode for some good reason.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
