Seagate snubs Linux

Filed under
Linux

SEAGATE'S latest batch of drives are not compatible with the Open Sauce operating system Linux.

It will shut shut the drive off after several minutes of inactivity and helpfully drop the USB connection. When the connection does come back it returns as USB1 which is apparently as useful as a chocolate teapot.

As our reader points out this is a, "fairly shit idea perfectly implemented, " unfortunately while Windows can handle it, Linux and Mac's can't cope.
There are a few work-arounds but Seagate Tech Support says they do not know what they are.
