Two cloned external drives not recognised simultaneously (iMac Sierra)

by joandres   Last Updated October 20, 2019 02:01 AM

I cloned a USB disk with encrypted partitions into another, identical one (same size, same model...). I changed the name of one of the partitions in finder for one of the disks, to be able to tell them apart. When I plug either of the drives by themselves, partitions are recognised fine. When I have one plugged into the computer and I plug the second one, the partitions of this second drive won't appear in finder (or prompt me to enter password), and in Disk Utility the drive appears, but not the partitions. In the information bar, the three partitions are shown, but instead of their names "Apple_CoreStorage" appears for the three of them. I need to plug them at the same time to copy info from one to the other. I'm in a mid-2011 iMac with Sierra OS. Please, help.

Here is the diskutil list run:
