Thermaltake BlacX Duet only seeing one drive

Postby jerryb1961 » 2019-08-16 21:40

Let me preface by saying I am using Mint Debian "Cindy" which is based on Stretch. I asked about this on the Mint forums but no one seems to know how to help.

It's a Thermaltake BlacX Duet docking station with two drives, but the OS is only seeing one of them. It works fine under regular Mint 17+ and under OpenSUSE 15. Surely I can't be the only Debian or Debian-derivative user to encounter this? (I know, don't call people Shirley...)

TIA...!

Define "does not see". Does it show up in 'fdisk -l'?

It doesn't see it either.

This is probably a matter of missing proprietary firmware in the Debian kernel. The Thermaltake website is not any help either.

I solved it by just installing regular Mint 19.2, and it works perfectly. I still have my LMDE installation if I ever run across a solution. Thanks anyway. folks :-)
