Western Digital 8TB My Book not detected


I have a USB3 Western Digital 8TB My Book external drive that is not detected by default in HDD Guardian. The model is WD80EZZX-11CSGA0.

If I add "[USB] /dev/sdb -d sat" to the additional devices box then it is detected correctly.

I've attached the toolbox output.

Forget to say, using HDD Guardian 0.7.1 and have done File > Update smartctl database

Download this file and put it into \HDD Guardian\smartctl folder, and then click on Rescan external devices: your drive should appear! ;)

That worked, many thanks!

I can confirm that the entry for Seagate Expansion Portable (vendor 0x0bc2, device 0x231a) works as well.
