Common mistakes on setting up 4 Bay Raid

Postby Admin_Mediasonic » December 12th, 2015, 2:09 am

common setup mistakes people make on 4 Bay Raid Enclosures

1. Does not read the set up guide or manual

2. Claiming hard drive error (xH error) on Raid enclosure, without setting up a Raid mode of some sort. (if you don't select a Raid mode xH error led will light up)

3. Claiming raid enclosure does not work. without setting up a Raid mode of some sort. ( You bought a Raid enclosure, if you don't select a raid mode you want to run, it won't work)

4. Claiming can't set up raid. (which goes back to #1 if you read the set up guide or manual, you will read that you need to press and hold the Raid confirmation button in the back of your Raid enclosure)

5. Says enclosure keep turning off after few seconds: (think power Sync fuction build into the enclosure)

a) set up enclosure put all 4 hard drives in and turn enclosure on, but does not connect to a Pc. (enclosure does not detect pc, so it will shut down in a few seconds)
b) plug enclosure to USB port but interface on enclosure is on esata mode. (enclosure will shut down in a few seconds cause wrong cable connection)

6. Claiming esata does not work. (which goes back to #1 if you read the set up guide or manual, you will read that your eSata port need to support port Multiplier)

7. Buying a Raid model and want to use it as non Raid. If you don't plan to use Raid or Don't know what Raid is, buy a non Raid model. The Raid models can only be used when a Raid mode is set up. Can not be use as Single bays. That is why we make 2 models
Raid and Non Raid.

8. Not fully inserting the USB cable into the enclosure. (Enclosure will power up, you will see blue LED light up, it looks normal, but hard drive will not show in the computer).
