    I have a confusion to this, can you please guide where exactly to look for this.
    Is there any existing solution to this problem? I did a lot of
    analysis and actually tried to make use of a number of USB HDD's from
    different vendors to be very sure of my observations. Our's is a
    target where-in we connect our HDD through the USB interface.
    Do you mean that putting code changes at this place would have impact
    on SATA HDD?
    Please help more on this.

    Again, if possible please share that code point, We can again check if
    that is hitting in our case.
    If need be I can provide the list of all the HDDs with their
    manufaturer ID's - on which we tested.
    Please let me know for this.
