    There is a disk attached to the adapter, but it does not show up in /dev/disk. Any idea?

    Hi
    Power to the SATA device dead, SATA cable faulty or disconnected, drive is dead.....

    Can you connect to another SATA port, is the device visible in the system BIOS?

    How big and how new and what type is the connected HD? That VIA is most likely v1.0 SATA, which may be incompatible with some newer or >2TB devices without a firmware reconfiguration or jumper on adapter and/or disk. The HD if newer spec than v1.0 might reject use of an old v1.0 cable.

    Checked all of these and did not succeed. Removed the drive and attached another one. The new drive showed up immediately as /dev/sdc. Checked again the first one and found it to be configured as slave.

    Now I have what I wanted to do since years:

    Code:
