Will a Toshiba HDD2D38 disk drive work in a Communicator U3 Sata HDD Docking Station? From what I was able to ascertain it would, am I wrong? I can’t seem to line it up for a connection.
Thanks for posting your question here! Although the Plugable USB3-SATA-U3 is designed to hold 3.5" SATA Hard Drives, you can plug in a 2.5" SATA Hard Drives into it and it should work without any issues.

Hi Roze, Thanks for the quick reply. I tried again to connect the hard drive into the docking station. The hard drive came out of an old compaq presario laptop (V6101US)… There seems to be a plastic tab between the connecting pins on the drive that keeps it from seating into the docking station connector properly. Have you ever run across this before? I know it should be a simple process, but it just won’t seat into the connector. Any Ideas ? Regards, Mark
Does the connector look like the images in the following link : http://www.laptopking.com/partpicture… ?
If yes, then it is a connector that attaches between the SATA interface and the Presario ( V6000 series), but would get in the way of any standard SATA interface. You would have to remove this connector for proper seating of the drive in the Plugable USB3-SATA-U3.
Roze, Thank you! I never realized that it was a connector that could be removed. Everything seems to be working fine. I can’t thank you enough for your quick response and the solution to the problem. Great service!! Regards, Mark
