Frequently Asked Questions

Troubleshooting

When you troubleshoot issues with a hard drive enclosure, there are some quick tests that you can complete to rule out potential problems. You can test to make sure that the following components are working correctly and are not the source of the issue:

  • Cables
  • Hard drives
  • Hard drive enclosure

To test your setup components, try the following:

  • Use the cables, hard drives, and hard drive enclosure in another setup to see if the problem is with the components or the setup.
  • Use a different cable, hard drive, and hard drive enclosure in your setup to see if the problem persists. Ideally, you should test a component that you know works in another setup.

When you test the hard drive and hard drive enclosure, it is recommended that you do the following:

  • To check Disk Management, press the Windows key + R, type diskmgmt.msc, and press Enter. Check to see if your hard drive is listed.
  • If the hard drive is listed with unallocated space, the hard drive needs to be reformatted. Right-click unallocated and click New Simple Volume. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the reformatting.​

Note: Formatting a hard drive erases all of the data on it. Make sure that you back up all of your data before you reformat the hard drive.​

  • If the hard drive is listed as healthy but does not have a drive letter, for example, C:, right-click healthy and click Change Drive Letter and Paths. Click Add, assign a drive letter, and click OK.

Note: A formatted hard drive will not show up in Computer or My Computer until it has a drive letter assigned to it.

How To

To confirm that the Mac OS detects your USB device, complete the following:

  1. Click the Apple icon.
  2. Click About This Mac.
  3. Click More Info or System Report.
  4. Under the appropriate heading, confirm that your USB device is listed and that there isn't an error. For example, a network card would be under Ethernet Cards.

You may need to refresh the System Information page after you plug in your device.  To do so, press Command R with the System Information page open.

Your USB device is listed according to the name of the chipset. To determine the name of the chipset of your USB device, navigate to www.StarTech.com and look on the Technical Specifications tab for your product.

Before You Buy

To determine if your hard drive will work in this enclosure, on the product page, click the Technical Specifications tab, and do the following:

  • Make sure that the enclosure supports the storage size of your hard drive. If the storage size of your hard drive is larger than what the enclosure was tested with, the hard drive will likely still work with the enclosure.
  • Confirm that your hard drive uses the same interface type as the enclosure. For example, IDE, SATA, or M.2.
  • Make sure that the enclosure supports the physical size of your hard drive, such as 2.5 inches or 3.5 inches.
  • Make sure that the enclosure supports the height of your hard drive. For example, 9 mm or 15 mm.
  • Verify that the power consumption of your hard drive doesn’t exceed the power output of the enclosure. If you’re using multiple hard drives, make sure that the combined power consumption of all of the hard drives doesn’t exceed the power output of the enclosure.

Perfect HDD Enclosure For My Needs

By: zendrum - 01/04/2019
I was looking for a rack mountable HDD enclosure for 4 drives to use as the media streaming RAID array in my recording studio. I am using this enclosure with an LSI/Broadcom MegaRAID SAS 9266-4i. The DAW workstation is running Windows 10 Pro. A few questions I had and the answers I discovered: Q: For use in a recording studio control room, how loud are the 3 fans on the rear of the unit? A: Almost silent! Mounted in the rack under my console, they are nearly inaudible. Q: Is this a RAID enclosure? A: No! You must have a RAID card to use with this enclosure. Q: How does the enclosure connect to my computer? A: The connector described as Mini SAS is an SFF 8088. Your RAID card probably has an SFF 8087. No problem, as you'll need an 8088 to 8087 pass through bracket anyway. Q: What drives does it support? A: It doesn't really "support" drives, as it just passes them to your RAID card. I'm using four WD 2TB Golds in Raid 10. So far, so good! The enclosure seems very well engineered. It's made of metal and feels very solid. The power supply support bracket is a nice touch, All drives have activity lights, and drive hot swap is easy, Other reviews I've seen pointed out that this enclosure doesn't auto power on in case of a power failure. In my application, this is not an issue. You should have it on a UPS anyway! Nice job Startech!
