SubjectRe: [PATCH] usb-storage: Add quirks to make G-Technology "G-Drive" work
From
Date
Oliver and Alan,

thank for investigating.

US_FL_NO_WP_DETECT without US_FL_IGNORE_UAS does not make a difference,
even with the patch you included applied:

It looks to me like the MODE SENSE simply hangs the drive, so anything
issued after that will fail. Of course the drive says it's the "current
command" that caused the failure, but I wouldn't give too much credence to
that. FYI -- this device is a consumer grade rotational drive that you can
get for less than $200, so I wouldn't be surprised if the implementations
have issues.

Also, I noticed that copying onto the drive with dd works fine, whereas
trying to mount a filesystem immediately crashes it. I suspect this is
because check_disk_change is called on mount (which eventually calls down
to sd_read_write_protect_flag, which is where the US_FL_NO_WP_DETECT flag
comes into play).
