sg_start dose not support some USB External Hard Disk
I'm a user of sg3_utils-1.28.
When I use sg_start to spin down some USB External Hard Disk , some does work and some does not work , can you give me some advise?
I have tried commands listed below, they all failed:
sg_start --stop /dev/sda
sg_start --pc=2 /dev/sda
sg_start --pc=3 /dev/sda
sg_start --pc=5 /dev/sda
I have tried USB enclosures listed below, they all failed:
