    3 Anyway, scsi_raw is something different, it is a driver allowing to send raw scsi commands to any device that can handle them. Besides the traditional SCSI controller, and SATA drives, it could also be used for example with USB mass storage devices, and ATAPI (IDE CD-ROM drives), which also use the same command set.
