Drives are HUSMM3240ASS205 my HBA is HBA330 I tried using a breakout cable (Amazon.com: SFF-8643 to SFF-8482 Cord, CableCreation Internal Mini SAS SFF-8643 to 4 X 29 Pin SFF-8482 Ada with SAS 15 Pin Power Port, 1.6FT, 0.5M: Computers & Accessories). I can't get the drives to recognize, same port with random other Seagate spinner works fine. I then tried putting the drive into another computer with a different HBA330 and utilizing a cable non power assembly to a Supermicro backplane (TQ) and the HUSMM3240ASS205 is recognized. Is there something about that cable assembly that is incompatible with this drive/HBA combo?
