Jumper Power
IDE Interface
b. With 3.5” drives, attach the free end
of the IDE ribbon cable to the back

As with the IDE cable, the connector will only fit one way.
3. Connecting and Powering USB DriveDock
a. Connect the USB 3.0 cable from your computer into the corresponding port on the USB

USB DriveDock can use bus power for 2.5” and SSD drives. However, some hard drives have
different power requirements especially when spinning up. The USB port can only provide so
much power and when it exceeds this amount you may get an error message on the computer.
If this occurs we suggest that you use the included AC adapter to power your dock and the drive
Your USB DriveDock is now ready to use! Turn on the unit by moving the power switch to the
“I” position. The green drive access indicator will light briefly after the unit is powered up,
indicating that USB DriveDock has successfully established communication with the drive.
Thereafter, it will light whenever the drive is accessed.
4. Using USB DriveDock with Combo Adapters
CRU-WiebeTech offers optional Combo Adapters that can allow your USB DriveDock to access
many additional types of drives. Follow these three simple steps to use a Combo Adapter with
your dock:
a. Attach USB DriveDock’s 4-wire power connector to the adapter.
b. Connect USB DriveDock’s IDE ribbon cable to the adapter’s IDE pins.
c. Connect the drive to the adapter.
You are now ready to use USB DriveDock to access the drive. Combo Adapters are available for
SATA drives, notebook drives, MicroDrives, ZIF drives, and more. See the WiebeTech website for
more details www.wiebetech.com.
