Hi there.

Today I bought a Toshiba Canvio Basics 4TB external USB3 drive (DTB440) but the kernel does not recognize it as USB3, there are just no kernel messages in /var/log/messages when I attach/remove the drive. I have an older Toshiba 1TB USB3 drive (DTB310) which works without problem. Switching USB3 cables does not help.

I tried the following combinations of disks/cables/ports:
4TB disk, any USB3 cable, USB3 port: No response
4TB disk, any USB3 cable, USB2 port: GOOD
4TB disk, USB2 cable, USB3 port: GOOD
1TB disk, any cable, any port: GOOD

Kernel: 4.19.66-gentoo with this .config
USB controller: NEC Corporation uPD720200 USB 3.0 Host Controller (rev 04)

Every answer appreciated,
Holger

P.S.: The new disk was to replace the old one attached to my Blu-ray player. Unfortunately this device does also not recognize the disk, no matter what cable.

Just tried to mount the disk with Windows on the same machine. Same effect. USB2 good, USB3 no response.
I will try another machine with USB3 port tomorrow or Monday. If it's the same I'd say the thing is broken and I might return it.

I tried the disk on other machines with USB3, no problem.

Now, I've got a different drive (Seagate Expansion+ 2TB) which works with the Blue-ray player. But this one, too, is not recognized by my laptop via USB3. Some symptoms like the one mentioned earlier. USB2 is good, USB3 no reaction.

I don't see that a kernel module might be missing.

Any ideas?

It seems you should update firmware, see https://askubuntu.com/questions/161862/nec-upd720200-usb-3-0-not-working-on-ubuntu-12-04

Thank you. I have just updated the firmware, but the problem persists.

Having windows running for the firmware update, I plugged in the Seagate. Ii is recognized by Windows with the same cable at the same port.

hoacker,

Boot windows, so it does all the cold start jiggery pokery.
Tell Windows to restart but choose Gentoo from the boot menu.

Pastebin your dmesg, lspic and kernel .config.

NeddySeagoon, I'll do that, later. I already posted .config, see first post.

Please be aware that most USB3 disks and sticks work fine. I only have problems with the two disks mentioned above.

Here we go ...

.config

dmesg
While scanning through dmesg i noticed this line, which need not be related to the problem:
Code:

The problem could be the usb enclosure, specifically the sata to usb portion.

If it works with usb2, see what lsusb says about that device, idVendor, idProduct, iManufacturer, iProduct

Edit to add: another thing to check is if the cable (enclosure end) fits snuggly. There are quite a few reports of the connection being loose, which would affect the connectivity, especially at usb3 speeds (more connectors that usb2).

And it could be that the unit is defective (the usb3 part)

So, back after a busy week.

Anon-E-moose, thank you for your answer. It is not a problem with the disks in general, it's only the USB3 port with USB3 cable on my laptop with gentoo. There's no problem with the Seagate on the same machine running windows or other machines. Also, it's not self assembled external drives (bulk hdd with seperate enclosure), but they are ready manufactured external drives. I find it very unlikely that two different drives from two different manufacturers bought within two days, new and sealed, have the same mechanical/contact problem.

When plugged into a USB2 port:
Code:
# lsusb
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 0bc2:2323 Seagate RSS LLC


Thanks again to everyone involved.
