I just purchased the USB 3.0 3.5"/2.5" SATA HDD Docking Station. When I plug everything in including my 3.5" HDD the docking station won’t power on. When I remove my 3.5" HDD the unit will power on. I have tested this with a smaller 2.5" HDD and had no problems.
I purchased this docking station in an attempt to recover the data from the 3.5" HDD which was originally an external HDD.
Do you have any thoughts for why my HDD won’t allow the docking station to power on? Could it be that my HDD is corrupt? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
