Hello!

I have a drive with this specs:

Manufacturer: Sigma

Model: WDC WD10 TPVT-00UART1

Firmware version: 0160

Serial: M6116018VF16


This is what I get back from the command included:

mitja@Dell-Inspirion-EY351EA-AKN:~$ sudo smartctl -d usbcypress -T permissive --smart=on --offlineauto=on --saveauto=on /dev/sdd
smartctl 5.40 2010-03-16 r3077 [i686-pc-linux-gnu] (local build)

And then I can't read logs because ... you get the picture.

Well, if anyone can do something about it ...
