Maxtor / Seagate D3 Station – 4TB External HDD Unboxing and Test
This external hard disk (HDD) comes with a large variation of power adapters.
In the box:
- USB 3.0 data cable
- Power supply and socket adapters
- Manual, warranty, blah blah…
For the drive to spin-up you must connect power and the data cable. If only power is connected, it will stay in sleep mode.
During a transfer speed test the drive just stopped working and an error message popped up about the drive being gone.
Checked the windows event log and that confirmed, the drive dissapeared on it’s own and the event log had errors related to the HDD.
After a bit of troubleshooting I’ve realized that the USB 3.0 extension I was using was ‘not good enough’.
Connect the HDD directly to the USB port in the computer, no cheapo USB extensions and you’ll be alright. 🙂
