    543 A failing [http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff566202.aspx SMART_GET_VERSION] call means that the device driver does not implement the I/O controls (see [wiki:FAQ#OnWindowssmartctlprintsthemessage:...LogReadfailed:Functionnotimplemented below]) to access ATA SMART functionality.
     541A failing [https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/windows/hardware/drivers/ff566202%28v%3dvs.85%29 SMART_GET_VERSION] call means that the device driver does not implement the I/O controls (see [wiki:FAQ#OnWindowssmartctlprintsthemessage:...LogReadfailed:Functionnotimplemented below]) to access ATA SMART functionality.

    545543Some Windows drivers for (S)ATA controllers are implemented as SCSI class drivers. This is usually the case for drivers which support RAID. Unfortunately, such drivers do not support the ATA specific SMART I/O controls.
