This disk drive was extracted from a network-connected data storage device and then
fitted into a USB 3.0 SATA external disk enclosure. It spins up freely, the access
LED is a steady blue, but I haven't found a way of making my Trisquel nabia operating
system detect it. The 'puter is a Thinkpad T430 with Type 4336 port extender with a
total of eight USB ports. The T430 has a pair of USB 3.0 ports accessible to this
disk drive. It gets fairly warm, and when left on & connected for about twenty minutes,
I can hear a beep every few seconds ...

Correction: Title has wrong Type; should be DT01ACA200.
dmesg | grep "New USB device found" gives a list that has several identifiers for each device;
file attached.

See: https://linux-hardware.org/?view=howto where it's said:
Probe — is a snapshot of your computer's hardware state.
Run this simple command in the console to create a probe of your computer (devices information and depersonalized system logs will be securely uploaded to the database and you'll get an URL to view the probe):

sudo -E hw-probe -all -upload > /media/george/Redacted/george/Redacted/Lenovo-Thinkpad-T430/hw-probe.txt
The probe finds only the four installed & mounted HDD's, and does not see the DT01ACA200 whether it's powered on or not.

Have you used lsblk, lshw?

lsblk and lshw each find the four disks that are mounted as /dev/sda though /dev/sdd,
but doesn't list anything that I can recognize about any fifth disk. /dev/sdd has a
nominal 2.0 TB storage capacity, as would the fifth disk, which remains undetected.
Thanks for asking

On further reflection, I find that there is a pair of pins next to the SATA connector,
presumably for a jumper/shunt, but there's no reliable information on its purpose.

Then I discovered that the drive is lockable ... but zero online information on how
to lock/unlock the drive.
