SBP(4) BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual SBP(4)NAMEsbp — Serial Bus Protocol 2 (SBP-2) Mass Storage Devices driver
The sbp driver provides support for SBP-2 devices that attach to the
FireWire (IEEE 1394) port. It should work with SBP-2 devices which the
CAM layer supports, for example, HDDs, CDROM drives and DVD drives.
Some users familiar with umass(4) might wonder why the device is not
detached at the CAM layer when the device is unplugged. It is detached
only if the device has not been plugged again during several bus resets.
This is for preventing to detach an active file system even when the
device cannot be probed correctly for some reason after a bus reset or
when the device is temporary disconnected because the user changes the
bus topology. If you want to force to detach the device, run “fwcontrol
-r” several times or set hw.firewire.hold_count=0 by sysctl(1).
Some (broken) HDDs do not work well with tagged queuing. If you have
problems with such drives, try “camcontrol [device id] tags -N 1” to dis‐
able tagged queuing.
