hdparm and Sata drives?


I am having a strange problem which I found after I tried getting the HD temperature in Suse9.2

hddtemp says this:
Code:
/dev/sda: ATA     HDS722512VLSA80 : /dev/sda: ATA     HDS722512VLSA80 :  S.M.A.R.T. not available
Then someone told me to check hddparm:
Code:
/dev/sda:
 HDIO_GET_MULTCOUNT failed: Operation not supported
 IO_support   =  0 (default 16-bit)
 HDIO_GET_UNMASKINTR failed: Operation not supported
 HDIO_GET_DMA failed: Operation not supported
 HDIO_GET_KEEPSETTINGS failed: Operation not supported
 readonly     =  0 (off)
 readahead    = 256 (on)
 geometry     = 15017/255/63, sectors = 123522416640, start = 0
Ok, so many failed things cannot be good . I have a Promise SATA150 TX2plus card in my Asus A7V133 motherboard. Needless to say reading temperature works like a charm in windows (I switched recently). Any ideas?

HDparm doesn't work with sata/scsi drives, AFAIK. It is only for IDE drives. Hope you find an answer.

Ah, that is clear then. So there is no program for Linux with which I can get information about my Sata drives?

possibly not. I don't have sata, but I know that hdparm doesn't work.
