    147 A. [=#workaround-set-u]If you just want to get smartmontools working again and don't care about the performance improvements the come from using UAS mode, you can simply use the IGNORE_UAS flag to tell Linux to stick with the usb-storage mode instead, by using the "u" flag on the `usb-storage.quirks` setting.[[BR]][[BR]]
    148 A. [=#workaround-unset-t]If you want to continue using UAS mode and are sure your particular device does properly support SAT mode even though the kernel detects it as a device that does not (e.g. as described in ticket:971#comment:12) , you can override that default configuration and suppress the NO_ATA_1X/":t" flag by passing an empty flag list in the `usb-storage.quirks` setting.

    150150Note that in either case, you will need to find the idVendor and idProduct fields for your device, in 4-digit hex format.  This information is found in the `New USB device found, idVendor=NNNN, idProduct=NNNN`
