Issue with Sata Dock - Obsidian 650d

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

I'm having an issue with accessing my SSD when it's plugged into the Sata dock on my 650d. I'm not entirely sure what's causing the problem, it may not even be a case/ dock issue, but thought this was the first place to start!

 

When I insert the SSD into the dock I get this popup;

Followed by this;

Apologies if this isn't a case/ dock issue and I'm looking in the wrong place but would really appreciate any advice or direction on where to go with this issue.

 

Thanks,

Jake.

The MB you have if it supports Hot swap should have a setting in the BIOS for the controller where you have the Hot swap port connected, and you should make sure that Hot swap is enabled and AHCI is turned on and the drives you are connecting also support Hot Swap not all drives or controllers support that feature.

Many thanks for the reply,

 

I'm using an Asus Sabertooth X79 motherboard - Have done some research and unfortunately can't find confirmation that it supports hot swap although I would presume it does if it's a feature that's found on most MB's these days. Have also checked the SSD and can confirm that it's hot-swap enabled.

 

I'm not familiar with the BIOS settings but will try to check and see if these settings are on - Is it a fairly straight-forward process? Apologies for my lack of knowledge!

Ok, have just taken a look in the BIOS settings and it appears that AHCI is enabled.

 

I didn't want to altar any settings before getting some further advice so left the settings as they are - Managed to take a screenshot though:

No problem and not every desktop MB supports that, but most Workstation/Server MB's would support that feature.

And whichever port that is plugged into that will have to be enabled on that screen shot you posted.

Okay I'm getting somewhere now! Have enabled the correct port and the SSD is now showing up in Disk Management, unfortunately have encountered another problem though (apologies if this is pushing the boundaries as I know this is now not an issue with the Corsair case!).

 

My main aim is to format the SSD and update the firmware, however I am unable to do anything as the disk is showing as offline due to a 'Signature Collision' with another disk - Here is another screenshot to display the error: (Any further advice on how to conquer this problem will be greatly appreciated!)

Can you right click it and select online?

 

How stupid of me! :sigh!:

 

Have now got the drive online, formatted it and updated the firmware to the latest version (which should hopefully iron out the problems with installing Win7 onto it) - Have done this remotely as I'm not at my home PC so will post an update later as to how I got on with installing the os.

 

Thanks again for the advice, has really helped me to get to the bottom of this! :)
