View Full Version : [lubuntu] Cannot access drive via Vantec NextStar USB 3.0 dock

February 18th, 2012, 04:39 AM
I have a DELL PC with a LaCie PCIe USB 3.0 card installed.

This has been running Ubuntu 11.10 for a while.

I wanted to use my Vantec NextStar USB 3.0 drive dock via the LaCie USB 3.0 card usb port.

I have put in a 2.5" drive in the dock and when I start DiskUtility I can see the drive in the peripheral list but it will not let me do anything with it.

It says it is device /dev/sdg, I cannot not see the drive at all with GParted.

lsusb shows that Bus 10 Device 1 is a 3.0 root hub

I am at a bit of a loss on how I can use this hub and partition the drive I have in it!

Any help would be greatfully received thanks!

Further to this, if I plug the Vantec hub into a USB2 port on the back of the PC I can see the drive and partition it.

Just when I plug it into the port on the LaCie PCIx card I get no action.

Not sure what else I need to try here!!!
