Does the drive enclosure HDL-SU3 support 14TB HDD?

Post by a634852 »

Recently, I bought a 14TB HDD (Seagate IronWolf ST14000VN0008) and put it into the drive enclosure.
When I connected the drive enclosure to my computer via USB 3.0, my computer could not detect the HDD.
Instead, I heard clicking sound of the HDD.
It seems that 14TB HDD is not supported.
Is it possible to solve the issue by updating the firmware of the drive enclosure?

We have not tested with 14TB yet
it has been tested up to 12TB so far.

if hard drive is clicking, Have you tested the drive is working in a computer?

I don't have a desktop computer. Hence, I do not have a native SATA port for testing.
