    26 Smartmontools was successfully tested with [wiki:Supported_USB-Devices many USB devices] on several Platforms. This will never work on MacOS X unless someone adds SCSI pass-through support to this OS. If the USB ID can be obtained from the operating system, smartmontools also supports auto-detection of (the already tested) USB devices. Then it is not necessary to specify the '-d' option. See the following table for details:

     39The [https://github.com/RJVB/OS-X-SAT-SMART-Driver OS-X-SAT-SMART-Driver] provides access to SMART data for SAT capable USB and Firewire devices on Mac OS X. This works without {{{-d sat}}} option. Note that this does not support USB bridges with vendor specific commands (JMicron, Sunplus), 48-bit ATA commands ({{{-l xerror}}}) or non-SMART ATA commands ({{{-s apm,N}}}). Full USB support would require SCSI pass-through support which does not yet exist on Mac OS X.
