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.

NOTE: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device,
pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection
against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can
radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may
cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference
will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference with radio
or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is
encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.

Health And Safety Precautions:
Use proper anti-static precautions while performing the installation of your drives into this drive
enclosure. Failure to do so can cause damage to your drive mechanisms and/or the drive enclosure.
Read this user guide carefully and follow the correct procedures when setting up the device. Do
not attempt to disassemble or modify the device. To avoid any risk of electrical shock, fire, shortcircuiting or dangerous emissions, never insert any metallic object into the device. If it appears to be
malfunctioning, contact technical support.
Never expose your device to rain, or use it near water or in damp or wet conditions. Never place
objects containing liquids on the drive, as they may spill into its openings. Doing so increases the risk
of electrical shock, short-circuiting, fire or personal injury.
General Use Precautions:
To avoid damage, do not expose the device to temperatures outside the range of 5° C to 40° C (41° F
to 104° F). Always unplug the device from the electrical outlet if there is a risk of lightning or if it will
be unused for an extended period of time. Otherwise, there is an increased risk of electrical shock,
short-circuiting or fire.
•
Do not use the device near other electrical appliances such as televisions, radios or speakers.
Doing so may cause interference which will adversely affect the operation of the other products.
•
Do not place the device near sources of magnetic interference, such as computer displays,
televisions or speakers. Magnetic interference can affect the operation and stability of drives.
•
Do not place heavy objects on top of the device.
•
Protect your device from excessive exposure to dust during use or storage. Dust can build up
inside the device, increasing the risk of damage or malfunction.
