12TB Western Digital drive support?

Postby storage junkie » May 10th, 2018, 10:03 am

From NewEgg, I just bought the HF2-SU3S2 Probox and stuck a couple of nice new 12TB Western Digital Gold drives in the chassis. Connected it up to a nice new Mediasonic eSata III PCIe card HP1-SS3 card. Downloaded and installed the Asmedia 106x SATA Controller Ver 3.30a AHCI Mode drivers referenced on this forum and restarted my PC.

Turned off the PC and the Probox.

Installed the drives in the Probox, connected the Probox to the PC, set the mode on the Probox to eSATA.

Turned on both the Probox and the PC.

Waited for hours for the PC POST process to get past the Asmedia driver screen. The PC finally brought up my Windows 8.1 login screen. I logged in. I started Disk Manager and the drives are not showing up. No 12TB drives show up.

However, I bought this Probox because Mediasonic advertises this box as supporting 8x12TB drives, on this web page:

Please help me understand how I can get my PC to recognize the 12TB drives that I've installed in the Probox.

Thanks very much.
