I've attached a SATA to my computer via a "plugable" (that's the company name) disk docking station. The docking station is fine, since I've attached another HDD and was able to see its partitions' contents.
Now, when I attach, I get:
[ +0.000604] sd 7:0:0:0: [sde] Synchronizing SCSI cache [ +0.247332] sd 7:0:0:0: [sde] Synchronize Cache(10) failed: Result: hostbyte=DID_ERROR driverbyte=DRIVER_OK [ +2.324092] usb 2-3: new SuperSpeed USB device number 9 using xhci_hcd [ +0.020970] usb 2-3: New USB device found, idVendor=174c, idProduct=55aa [ +0.000004] usb 2-3: New USB device strings: Mfr=2, Product=3, SerialNumber=1 [ +0.000003] usb 2-3: Product: USB3-SATA-UASP1 [ +0.000003] usb 2-3: Manufacturer: Plugable [ +0.000003] usb 2-3: SerialNumber: 123456789096 [ +0.002430] scsi host7: uas [ +11.433187] scsi 7:0:0:0: Direct-Access 0 PQ: 0 ANSI: 6 [ +0.052283] sd 7:0:0:0: [sde] 0 512-byte logical blocks: (0 B/0 B) [ +0.000101] sd 7:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg5 type 0 [ +0.000342] sd 7:0:0:0: [sde] Write Protect is off [ +0.000006] sd 7:0:0:0: [sde] Mode Sense: 43 00 00 00 [ +0.000153] sd 7:0:0:0: [sde] Write cache: enabled, read cache: enabled, doesn't support DPO or FUA [ +0.000201] sd 7:0:0:0: [sde] Optimal transfer size 33553920 bytes [ +0.001339] sd 7:0:0:0: [sde] Attached SCSI disk
Note the error. If I try
fdisk /dev/sde, I get:
Welcome to fdisk (util-linux 2.29.2). Changes will remain in memory only, until you decide to write them. Be careful before using the write command. fdisk: cannot open /dev/sde: No such file or directory
Why is this happening, and is there a way I can fix/overcome this issue?
