Just purchased a U3 HDD docking station and having issues with Truecrypt reading drives that have been encrypted and formatted using another brand HDD dock.
I have several 3.0Tb disks that were formatted and encrypted using another external dock (another brand). The other dock only supported USB2.0. We’ll call this brand “x”. I was borrowing that dock and needed to purchase my own. Decided on the Plugable USB3-SATA-U3.
What I have found is that 2 disks that were encrypted and formatted using Truecrypt the “brand x” hdd dock cannot be mounted in the Plugable. From an OS perspective, it does appear to see the disk at the full capacity. However, Truecrypt throws an error when I attempt to mount these using the Plugable dock. “Error: Incorrect/invalid parameter.”
Note, this is not the same message one would get if I was using the wrong password. The password is not the issue.
I put the drive(s) back in the “brand x” toaster, all works as designed - no issues whatsoever.
