This is read right from the device itself. One retailer website specs shows this to be a USB device which I doubt the other shows IDE. Need some additional information on your PC hardware specifications lke make/model etc. What is not exactly working?
It's weird... I had a ubuntu live cd, so I stuck it in to see what the dmesg output would be. scsi-mmc something or other. I'd paste it, but I aint at my hooch. I switched to scsi emulation, it works but I still cant help to wonder why the small difference..
