I added this back since it is a nice and convenient place for a copy/paste from a text-based browser while booted into a live CD environment. Graysky (talk) 10:58, 10 October 2013 (UTC)

USB Enclosures

from the hdparm manual page:

hdparm provides a command line interface to various kernel interfaces supported by the Linux SATA/PATA/SAS "libata" subsystem and the older IDE driver subsystem. Many newer (2008 and later) USB drive enclosures now also support "SAT" (SCSI-ATA Command Translation) and therefore may also work with hdparm. Eg. recent WD "Passport" models and recent NexStar-3 enclosures. Some options may work correctly only with the latest kernels.

It may be possible to use SATA/USB interfaces for this purpose, but without a way to test whether or not a particular interface will support this, I'm reluctant to modify the article contents.
