Try '-d sat' option and report the result to smartmontools-database 
mailing list.

If SAT works, we could later add this USB ID to drivedb.h. Then this 
option will be no longer needed for this bridge. Note that you could 
also add a local drive database entry. See section about '-B' option on 
smartctl man page.
