hddtemp for Seagate backup plus


  I have Seagate backup plus external USB 3.0 HDD and by default hdd
temp does not show the hdd temperature

$ sudo hddtemp /dev/sda
/dev/sda: Seagate BUP BK: S.M.A.R.T. not available

However if I use this:
$ sudo hddtemp SATA:/dev/sda
/dev/sda: : 42°C

I tried to read through the manual to find out how to specify the type
in the hddtemp.db but there doesnot seem to be any way I could find.
I added this line in vain.
"Seagate BUP BK"                        190 C "Seagate BUP BK"

Is there a way to monitor hddtemp on this hdd ? If there is any other
alternative to hddtemp .. please do tell me
