#1756 new enhancement

USB-A/USB-C flash Kingston DataTraveller Max (0x0951:0x177f)

Component: drivedb Version:
Keywords: usb nand Cc:



I have several these usb flash memory keys, 256 GiB - 1 TiB. They are not detected by default command line by --xall command. Yet, they are partially detected by "-d sat" option. Hereby I attach relevant information in several files. Perhaps it is possible to offer full support, or at least de-clutter output of smartctl to usable one.



P.S. these are perfect work-horses for storage needs.

Feel free to request any additional data. Your work is highly appreciated! Ours bare minimum is quality feedback.

Summary: USB-A/USB-C flash Kingston DataTraveller MaxUSB-A/USB-C flash Kingston DataTraveller Max (0x0951:0x177f)

The output suggests that the drive firmware only implements a subset of SAT which only supports ATA IDENTIFY and ATA SMART READ DATA commands. This limitation cannot be fixed by smartctl.

Note that USB flash drives normally do not provide any SMART information.

PS: there is no need to provide *.csv files also as a *.ods variant.

Noted. Meanwhile:

  1. Is it possible to include drive in DB file, while skipping all non-working/irrelevant output, leaving what is meaningful? Like some kind of output "mangling"?
  1. May you please suggest any USB thumb-sticks (or a method to search driveDB?), which support S.M.A.R.T. acceptably? For example, I use Corsair Voyager GTX - it has almost full support of S.M.A.R.T. interface.

  1. No, the drivedb only controls ATA attribute display and usb device type selection.
  1. Sorry, no. USB drives are accessed via SCSI protocol, so there is no need for ATA-like diagnostic functionality (see tickets #1422, #1486).

USB Id added in r5600, r5602.

Leaving ticket open as undecided because the attribute set is still unknown.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
