I cannot even see (external powered 3.5) hard drives attached via USB, same drives are fine over SATA. Slots, cables are fine, they seem to be powered. They just don't appear in the system. No clues in syslog. Is there anything I can do?
Might be kernel-related? Went through all this: http://superuser.com/questions/6 ... dev-on-raspberry-pi

That's all I've found in dmesg:
[    2.056572] usb 2-1: new high-speed USB device number 2 using ehci-platform
[    2.211527] input: Western Digital  My Book          as /devices/platform/soc@01c00000/1c1c000.usb/usb2/2-1/2-1:1.1/0003:1058:1101.0001/input/input0

You mean you connect the drivers directly into sata, it is OK. And then you put the drives into a sata to usb adapter, and then connect it through usb port, it shows nothing. Is it possible that the sata to usb adapter is broken?

It is clearly a Raspbian bug. I switched to Bananian and everythings fine.
