Could this be related to those drives being SATA? =20
>From http://smartmontools.sourceforge.net/#testinghelp :
"Smartmontools should work correctly with SATA drives under both Linux 2.=
4 and 2.6 kernels, if
you use the standard IDE drivers in drivers/ide. If you use the new libat=
a drivers, it won't
work correctly because libata doesn't yet support the needed ATA-passthro=
ugh ioctl() calls.
Jeff Garzik, the libata developer, says that this support will be added t=
o libata in the
future. When this happens, we'll add support to smartmontools for a new S=
ATA/libata device type
'-d sata'. Typically, to force an SATA disk to run using the standard (no=
n-libata) drivers, you
must use the BIOS to select "legacy mode" for the controller. If the IDE =
driver doesn't support
your particular SATA controller, or the controller doesn't have a legacy =
interface, then only
libata can be used. Unless the hard disk controller on the system motherb=
oard is Intel, VIA or
nVidia, standard IDE drivers may not work"
