[opensuse] Strange message from external disk
Hi all,
Today I backed up some data on my external Lacie drive containing a
Toshiba MK1059GSM disk.

In order to avoid repeated load cycles, I used the "hdparm -B 255
/dev/sdc" command as I ever did.
For the first time I obtained a strange message from SG_IO:

orodruin:/home/ori # hdparm -B 255 /dev/sdc

/dev/sdc:
setting Advanced Power Management level to disabled
SG_IO: bad/missing sense data, sb[]: 72 00 00 1d 00 00 00 0a 09 0c 00
00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
APM_level = off

Note that on oS 12.1 I never seen this message when using this disk,
message that is appeared now with oS 12.2.

Then, in order to spin down the disk before unplugging it, no message
from SG_IO when I ran "hdparm -S 2 /dev/sdc".

Should I file a bug against kernel for this?

Best,
Andrea
