I have a lacie 500gb external hooked up through USB to a powermac g4. I like to use apps that report the current SMART status of hard drives. Things seem to see the smart status of any internal drive, but it says external drives dont support SMART status. Under apple profiler, it says not supported on smart status of the external drive. Is there any way to see the smart status of external hd's or is this just not supported?
