Win 7 x64 Pro
Asrock A75 Pro4-M set to AHCI
Hitachi 3TB (brand spankin' new)
I have the USB version.
I plugged it in to a USB3 port, plugged in the HD and powered on the dock.
Disk Manager - Up pops the new drive and Sally and I'm told to initialize for DM to work correctly.
I unchecked Sally so I can do the new drive only. Set it to NTFS. It starts the process and then says DM needs to be refreshed and then quickly drops back to the DM only. The format window is gone.
I can't see the new HD anymore.
Through a series of powering on and off both PC and dock I get the drive back but it is unformatted.
Hit 'format'. It seems to work and then just stops. HD is not visible in DM.
Power on/off and I cannot see the new HD.
Connect the HD to the mobo and completely format it. I copy 1TB of data onto it.
Power down. Take the new HD and plug it into the dock, power it on. NADA
Not visible in DM or explorer. Any thoughts???
EDIT: As I'm typing this up I got a window that says the new drive needs to be formatted in order for it to work??? It is mos def formatted and has a TB of data on it!
Still not visible in DM or explorer.
There is an update that I have not installed. Maybe I should do that...but I'm almost certain I read that it would work w/3TB drives.
