I was looking into your original issue earlier and saw a post
mentioning that hdparm didn't work with sata drives?

Not sure how old the post was or how accurate, I've never had
to use hdparm myself.

Perhaps 'sdparm' is what you need, never heard of that until
about 10 seconds ago looking at this topic again.
