Hello,

is it possible to implement support for the PL2773 USB bridge chip into smartmontools?

The USB ID is shown below:

---
C:\Windows\system32>smartctl -A /dev/sdd
smartctl 5.43 2012-06-30 r3573 [i686-w64-mingw32-win7(64)-sp1] (sf-5.43-1)
Copyright (C) 2002-12 by Bruce Allen, http://smartmontools.sourceforge.net

/dev/sdd: Unknown USB bridge [0x067b:0x2773]
Smartctl: please specify device type with the -d option.

Use smartctl -h to get a usage summary

Information about the chip can be found at developers website:
1) http://www.prolific.com.tw/US/CustomerLogin.aspx
2) Login as GUEST, password GUEST
3) "USB Smart I/O Controllers" on the left side, then "USB Storage"
4) Look at the four links in paragraph "PL2773 SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and eSATA to SATA Bridge Controller"

How could I support/speed up implementation of this bridge chip in smartmontools?

Thanks in advance
Andre
