Installation
WARNING: Hard drives require careful handling, especially when
being transported. If you are not careful with your hard disk, lost data
may result. Always handle storage devices with caution.
Hardware Installation
1. Connect the external power adapter from the hard drive dock to a
power outlet.
2. Insert a 2.5” or 3.5” hard drive into the top loading slot. Make sure
that the connectors on the hard drive are facing the same corner of
the slot that has a cutout in the door. The label on the hard drive
should face the front of the hard drive dock.
3. Connect the included USB cable from the hard drive dock to an
available USB port on the computer system. The computer can be
on or off.
NOTE: A USB 2.0 A-B cable could also be used on the hard drive
dock.
4. Press the power button on the top of the hard drive dock. The Power
LED under the power button should light up.
5. To remove the hard drive, make sure it is currently not being
accessed by the computer then unmount or uninstall the disk drive
from the operating system (see documentation for your operating
system). Press the power button to turn off the hard drive dock and
wait for the drive to power down. Press the drive ejection button on
the top of the hard drive dock the release the drive. Then pull the
drive from the slot.
Driver Installation
Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7, Mac OS X, Linux
No driver installation is required for these operating systems, as
this hard drive dock is natively supported, so the drivers are already
installed.

Using the Storage Device
Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7
If you are using a brand new hard drive that does not contain any data,
then you will first need to prepare the hard drive for use. From the
main desktop, right-click on “My Computer” (“Computer” in Vista/7),
then select Manage. In the new Computer Management window, select
Disk Management from the left window panel.
Locate the Disk that says it is “Unallocated” (check hard drive capacity
to confirm it’s the correct hard drive) and then right-click in the section
that says “Unallocated” and select “New Partition”.
4
The New Partition Wizard will appear. Follow the instructions in the
wizard to complete setting up the drive. Once complete, the Disk
should show up as “Healthy” with a drive letter assigned (i.e. E:). This
drive letter should now appear within My Computer.
If you are installing a hard drive that already has data on it, then after
plugging it in, the drive should automatically show up with a drive letter
assigned within My Computer.
