3) Slide the 2.5” SATA HDD into the HDD tray

4) Locate the four HDD fastening screws included in the Enclosure package. Turn the Enclosure bottom side up. Fasten the HDD to the HDD tray by inserting the screws using a Phillips screwdriver.

5) Slide the assembled HDD tray into the Enclosure housing bottom side up.

6

6) Ensure that the guide marks on the panel are properly aligned with the guide marks on the Enclosure housing.

7) Fasten the front panel to the Enclosure housing by replacing the screws removed in step 1.

The 2.5” SATA HDD Enclosure is now ready for connection to a Host

Computer.

Connecting the 2.5” SATA HDD Enclosure to a Host

USB 2.0 model

1) Connect the DC Jack to USB cable to the DC IN port FIRST.

Ensure that the DC Jack to USB cable is connected before attempting to connect the USB 2.0 cable to the host computer

.

2) Connect the available end of the DC Jack to USB 2.0 cable to the host computer. The LED is now active.

Note: To better protect your HDD, it is highly recommended that you first connect the DC-Jack to USB power cable to the 2.5” SATA HDD Enclosure.

If the USB A to mini B data cable is connected to the computer host and then connected to the 2.5” SATA HDD Enclosure, the HDD motor will continually attempt to spin up. If the amount of power supplied by the host is insufficient to spin up the HDD a feedback loop will occur, potentially damaging the HDD.

3) Connect the USB A to mini B cable to the 2.5” SATA HDD

Enclosure.

8

4) Connect the free end of the USB A to mini B cable to an available

USB 2.0 port on the host computer.

You are now ready to use your 2.5” SATA HDD Enclosure.

eSATA/USB 2.0 model

1) Connect the DC Jack to USB Y-cable to the DC IN port FIRST.

2) If the USB 2.0 connector is selected for data transfer, connection to only one USB port on the host computer via Y-cable is required.

The LED now is active.

3) If the eSATA connector is selected for data transfer, connection to two USB ports on the host computer via Y-cable is required. The

LED is now active.

Note: To protect your HDD, it is highly recommended that you first connect the DC-Jack to USB power cable to the 2.5” SATA HDD Enclosure. If the

USB A to mini B data cable is connected to the computer host and then connected to the 2.5” SATA HDD Enclosure, the HDD motor will continually attempt to spin up. If the amount of power supplied by the host is insufficient to spin up the HDD a feedback loop will occur, potentially damaging the HDD.

4) Connect the mini USB 2.0 or eSATA cable to the 2.5” SATA HDD

Enclosure.

5) Connect the free end of the USB 2.0 or eSATA cable to the appropriate port of the computer host.

You are now ready to use your 2.5” SATA HDD Enclosure.

Note: 2.5” SATA HDD Enclosure should only be connected to a computer via one interface at a time. Connection of 2.5” SATA HDD Enclosure to a computer via two or more interface connectors, i.e., USB 2.0 and eSATA, is not recommended.

10

Using the DC Jack to USB Y-cable (USB 2.0/eSATA model only)

The DC Jack to USB Y-cable provides 2 USB type-A connectors and 1 DC

Jack connector. If USB 2.0 connection is selected as the primary data transfer interface, insert only one USB type-A connector of the Y-cable into the host.

If eSATA connection is chosen as the primary data transfer interface, both

USB type-A connectors must be inserted into two available USB ports on the computer.

DC Jack to USB Y-cable and eSATA cable

Note: The host computer must supply a minimum total power of 1 A (or 5

Watts) via two USB ports to the 2.5” SATA HDD Enclosure by USB bus. If adequate power is not supplied by the USB ports of the host computer, an

AC/DC adapter must be used. An AC/DC power adapter is NOT included in this package. For best performance, ensure that an AC/DC power adapter capable of supplying 5V/2A is available.
