Hi Matthew,

Thanks for posting your question here, I’ll be happy to help. Here’s a link to a troubleshooting guide for the USB3-SATA-U3 that will help narrow down where the problem could be.…

One important thing to check is whether any other HDD will work in the dock, or if the SSD will work in any other dock or internally. Please reply to with the results of what you find from following the steps outlined in the troubleshooting guide as well as your Amazon Order Id and the serial number of the unit you have.

Once we get this additional information, we’ll be able to figure out our best next steps.
