I made the assumption that diskutil would remain consistent in its output, but discovered my mistake. For example:
diskutil info /dev/rdisk3 | grep "Media Name"
used to provide this. Now, it’s returning the volume name that you gave the drive when you formatted it. The Disk Utility application gives the info if you enable “Show all devices” in the nav pane, so the information is there - somewhere.
Is there a mechanism to get the device information that would normally be returned in an INQUIRY command given a raw disk device such as /dev/rdisk3? I’m specifically trying to get the manufacturer and model info -i.e. Toshiba TOSMXXXXXXXX.
