Description

I just bought a new Seagate FreeAgent? GoFlex? 1TB USB disk drive. smartmontools don't recognize it, although it seems to work nicely when the device type is explicitly specified:

$ sudo smartctl -i /dev/sdc
smartctl 5.40 2010-07-12 r3124 [x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu] (local build)

/dev/sdc: Unknown USB bridge [0x0bc2:0x5021 (0x148)]
Smartctl: please specify device type with the -d option.

Use smartctl -h to get a usage summary

$ lsusb | grep 5021
Bus 002 Device 036: ID 0bc2:5021 Seagate RSS LLC

$ sudo smartctl -i -d sat /dev/sdc
