OWC MERCURY PRO 3 INTRODUCTION SUPPORT RESOURCES 2.1 TROUBLESHOOTING Begin your troubleshooting by verifying that the power cable is connected to the OWC Mercury Pro and to a power source. If the power cable is connected to a power strip, make sure that the power switch on the strip is turned on. Next, verify that both ends of your data cable is securely plugged into the computer and the OWC Mercury Pro. If the Mercury Pro is still not working properly, try using a different USB 3.1 Gen 1 cable and see if that helps. You can also connect the Mercury Pro to a different computer to eliminate the possibility that the problem is with the computer and not the drive or the cable. If problems persist, see our online FAQs at: www.owcdigital.com/faq If you would like to contact Technical Support please see Section 2.3. 2.2 EJECTING DISCS In Windows, ejecting an optical disc from your OWC Mercury Pro optical drive can be done by pressing the eject button on the front of the unit. In OS X, the eject button is disabled by the operating system, so ejecting a disc can be done in the following ways: 1. Drag the desktop icon of the disc to the trash. 2. Open Finder, then click the eject button next to the disc icon in the “Devices” sidebar. 2.3 CONTACTING TECHNICAL SUPPORT Phone: M–F, 8am–5pm CST (866) 692-7100 (N.
