K32-SU3 Rev.2 not working

Postby PCHEFLIN » August 9th, 2017, 3:47 pm

I got two K32-SU3 Rev.2 from Amazon 08-09-17 (ser #: I17030622 and I17030623) to be used on Win10 Home. One with a Seagate ST500DM000 5tb drive and the other with a Toshiba MD04ACA500 5tb drive, both known good.

After install of drives in the enclosures, connection to pc and power I get nothing, no power lamps, pc does not see them (obviously w/o power). Any clue on what the problem could be? Drives worked in old enclosures that I no longer have. Power bar I'm using works fine, that's a known.

I did same thing as you did, I just bought the enclosure from amazon, it arrived today 8/9/17 and I have same problem?
My laptop And Desktop recognize it, but I cant access it and the drive light goes out after computer boots up?

update

I got my enclosure to work

In order to get your enclosure to work the drive you put in it has to be activated, and formatted.

in windows 10 use disk management, go to computer, click on manage and then click on disk management, find the drive, activate it, spawn it and format it.

I'm going to purchase another one for my other WD 2TB HD.
