WD Velociraptor doesn't fit in docking station.

WD Velociraptor doesn’t fit in docking station. Plugable USB 3.0/2.0 SATA Hard Drive Docking Station package says ALL 2.5 or 3.5 SATA HDD will fit. 3GB SATA II Velociraptor is a 2.5 drive permanently set in special frame. HDD plugs are not aligned with docking station plugs. Any suggestions? I bought this unit to transfer data from 2 Velociraptors.

Hi Jeff,

The WD Velociraptor (http://support.wdc.com/product/kb.asp… ), when it’s in its IcePack frame, isn’t standard size.

If you could remove it from the frame, you should have a standard 2.5" size drive. It looks like that is possible (e.g. based on this review: http://www.silentpcreview.com/article… )

Can you try that removal, and let us know how things go?

Thanks and best wishes,
