Product ID: UNI3510U2EB

5 stars (1 reviews) |
  • Supports either a SATA or IDE (PATA) hard drive
  • Screwless/tool-less design for assembly
  • High Speed USB 2.0 compliant host interface, with support for data transfer rates up to 480 Mbps

StarTech.com's InfoSafe UNI3510U2EB eSATA/USB to SATA/IDE External Hard Drive Enclosure delivers a versatile and cost-effective external storage solution, letting you turn any 3.5" Serial ATA (SATA, SATA II, SATA III) or IDE hard drive into an eSATA (SATA only) or USB 2.0 (SATA or IDE) connected external storage solution for high capacity drives (tested with up to 4TB). The External hard drive enclosure features a large built-in 80mm fan that provides enhanced re-distribution of heat build-up generated as a result of typical drive operation. This feature is especially important for larger capacity hard drives, and faster “spinning" drives (i.e 7200 RPM), as it can help keep drives running cooler, which can preserve data integrity and the drive's lifespan by reducing the chances of premature failures.

Its unique snap-in, screwless hard drive installation and "One Touch Backup", which automates backup tasks for simple backups of files and folders at the touch of a button, based on pre-defined settings within the easy to use software utility (included), are design features which provide a convenient and efficient operating experience .

The hard drive enclosure features an attractive black aluminum casing that looks great in any operating environment, and is backed by our 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Applications

  • Turn an unused IDE (PATA) or SATA hard drive into additional external storage
  • Technicians who work with and need to access a variety of different drives
  • Create a fast, portable external storage solution for desktops, laptops or netbooks
  • Add-on storage to almost any USB enabled system
  • Backup data to an external storage device for archiving or freeing up space

The StarTech.com Advantage

Frequently Asked Questions

Troubleshooting

Note: If you are using an IDE hard drive 1 Gigabyte in size or smaller, refer to the following FAQ: http://www.startech.com/faq/hard_drive_accessories_minimum_ide_hard_drive_size

If you are unable to detect your IDE (PATA) drive using a StarTech.com product, you may need to change the jumper settings on your drive. The jumpers switch the drive between Master, Slave, and Cable Select for most drives. A jumper is a small plastic piece that slides on top of two pins to electrically short them together.

When it does not mention what IDE drive configuration is required or if there is only one drive in the setup, the drive should be configured as Master. If Master is not working, try using the drive in Cable Select.

There is no standard position for the jumpers on IDE drives. On some drives, the jumper diagram is on the label that is on the top of the drive. On other drives, there are markings on the circuit board for CS, MA, and SL, which means a jumper shorts the pins vertically in that position. For more information, refer to the documentation provided by the manufacturer.

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

Note: For more information on how to detect an IDE hard drive, visit http://www.startech.com/faq/hard_drive_accessories_ide_detection.

Older IDE drives are not supported by current StarTech.com products. Typically, these drives were made earlier than the mid-to-late 1990s and are smaller than 1 Gigabyte in size.

There are a number of reasons that older IDE drives may not be detected, including the following:

  • The drive uses PIO (Programmed Input/Output) mode and not DMA (Direct Memory Access).

  • The drive is non-ATA or is using an ATA mode that predates the chipset's compatibility (usually older than ATA-4).

  • The sector size is not 512 bytes.

Unfortunately there is no workaround in these situations. An older system or an older IDE controller card must be used to access older IDE drives.

Simple, easy to the point

Good enclosure for large format and if you don't care if the smaller drive moves around inside it works for smaller format HDD or SDD's
