[Bug 1591521] Re: Kernel Does not recognize some USB 3.0 hard drives


Using Ubuntu 14.04 : kernel 3.13.0-24 successfully mounts the drive.

In the original post : "This works correctly in Ubuntu 14.04 on a VM and vanilla kernel 4.4.13."
Should have read : "This works correctly in Ubuntu 14.04 on a VM using kernel 3.13.0-24.
Another data point, possibly relevant, in a different HW configuration (No VM, older 2010 Apple iMAC, USB 2.0 logic board, same Hard Drive):  Arch Linux using kernel 4.4.10 showed the bug, but upgrading to Arch kernel 4.4.13 remedied the issue"

  Kernel Does not recognize some USB 3.0 hard drives

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Running Ubuntu 16,04 in VMware Fusion on an Apple Mac Book Pro, when
  connecting a USB 3.0 external drive it does not mount. It seems to
  choke at the kernel level. dmesg shows incomplete loading, and never
  gets a device assigned.

  This works correctly in Ubuntu 14.04 on a VM and vanilla kernel

  Confirmed bug on different HW with kernel 4.4.10 imac arch linux bare
