Having trouble installing a piece of hardware? Want to know if that peripheral is compatible with Linux?

Finding VendorID and DeviceID of Harddrive (or, translating MS-speak)


Hello,

I'm trying to find a VendorID and DeviceID on my Harddrive that supposedly appears in the form VEN_xxxx and DEV_xxxx.
This is under the guise of installing a windows partition, and some driver or other is missing to allow a usb install--a presumably competent windows person is trying to point me to the right one but can't seem to do anything with the output of:
Code:
#lshw
*-ide:1
             description: IDE interface
             product: 82801FB/FW (ICH6/ICH6W) SATA Controller
             vendor: Intel Corporation
             physical id: 1f.2
             bus info: pci@0000:00:1f.2
             logical name: scsi2
             version: 03
             width: 32 bits
             clock: 66MHz
             capabilities: ide pm bus_master cap_list emulated
             configuration: driver=ata_piix latency=0
           *-disk:0
                description: ATA Disk
                product: ST340014AS
                vendor: Seagate
                physical id: 0.0.0
                bus info: scsi@2:0.0.0
                logical name: /dev/sda
                version: 8.12
                serial: 5MQ28YCX
                size: 37GiB (40GB)
                capabilities: partitioned partitioned:dos
                configuration: ansiversion=5 signature=d0f4738c

And I can only think of:

Code:
# cat /proc/scsi/scsi
Attached devices:
Host: scsi2 Channel: 00 Id: 00 Lun: 00
  Vendor: ATA      Model: ST340014AS       Rev: 8.12
  Type:   Direct-Access
Code:
# hdparm -i /dev/sda

/dev/sda:

 Model=ST340014AS                              , FwRev=8.12    , SerialNo=            5MQ28YCX
 Config={ HardSect NotMFM HdSw>15uSec Fixed DTR>10Mbs RotSpdTol>.5% }
 RawCHS=16383/16/63, TrkSize=0, SectSize=0, ECCbytes=4
 BuffType=unknown, BuffSize=2048kB, MaxMultSect=16, MultSect=?8?
 CurCHS=16383/16/63, CurSects=16514064, LBA=yes, LBAsects=78125000
 IORDY=on/off, tPIO={min:240,w/IORDY:120}, tDMA={min:120,rec:120}
 PIO modes:  pio0 pio1 pio2 pio3 pio4 
 DMA modes:  mdma0 mdma1 mdma2 
 UDMA modes: udma0 udma1 udma2 udma3 udma4 udma5 *udma6 
 AdvancedPM=no WriteCache=enabled
 Drive conforms to: ATA/ATAPI-6 T13 1410D revision 2:  ATA/ATAPI-1,2,3,4,5,6

 * signifies the current active mode
It seems like this contains all necessary info on the harddrive. Is this vendorID and deviceID just translated differently in linux?

Thanks for reading.

I thought VEN and DEV were USB identifiers.

Try 'lsusb' on your system.

One of mine has just a usb keyboard...
Code:
[root@athlonz ~]# lsusb
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 046d:c315 Logitech, Inc. Classic New Touch Keyboard
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
[root@athlonz ~]#
another has a flashdrive, usb mouse and usb keyboard...
Code:
[root@athlon ~]# lsusb
Bus 007 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 006 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 001 Device 006: ID 12f7:1e23 Memorex Products, Inc. TravelDrive 2007 Flash Drive
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 003: ID 046d:c045 Logitech, Inc. Optical Mouse
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 046d:c315 Logitech, Inc. Classic New Touch Keyboard
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
[root@athlon ~]#
For the flashdrive the VEN is 12f7 and the DEV is 1e23 (I think...).

I'm pretty sure if you have an external harddrive in a USB enclosure, the USB enclosure will have a Vendor and Device ID, but there won't be one for the harddrive that's enclosed (it's not a usb device).

Thanks for the reply! You made me realize that I made a mistake in my question,
I realize now it's the Storage Controller I need to find the vendorID and deviceID for, not the harddrive itself.

Code:
sh-3.1$ /sbin/lspci -vv

00:1f.2 IDE interface: Intel Corporation 82801FB/FW (ICH6/ICH6W) SATA Controller (rev 03) (prog-if 8f [Master SecP SecO PriP PriO])
        Subsystem: Dell Device 0181
        Control: I/O+ Mem- BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr- Stepping- SERR- FastB2B- DisINTx-
        Status: Cap+ 66MHz+ UDF- FastB2B+ ParErr- DEVSEL=medium >TAbort- <TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR- INTx-
        Latency: 0
        Interrupt: pin C routed to IRQ 20
        Region 0: I/O ports at fe00 [size=8]
        Region 1: I/O ports at fe10 [size=4]
        Region 2: I/O ports at fe20 [size=8]
        Region 3: I/O ports at fe30 [size=4]
        Region 4: I/O ports at fea0 [size=16]
        Capabilities: <access denied>
        Kernel driver in use: ata_piix
I assume Device ID is 0181??
Any thoughts about vendorID?

I figured it out.
I just needed to use the -n flag with lspci.
Thanks for reading.
