I’m trying to get a 32TB (24TB in raid 5) G Shuttle to function as main storage for Macbook Pro (2017) and a custom PC with an Asus Prime Deluxe x299 motherboard with a Thunderbolt x299 expansion card.
I know I have to format in exFat, and that I cannot connect both computers simulatenously.
The G-Shuttle works with the Macbook Pro when connected w/ included Thunderbolt 3 cable. However, when plugged into the ThunderboltEx 3 Asus expansion card on the PC, it does not work.
I believe it is a problem setting up the ThunderboltEx 3 card…the motherboard header is plugged in, and I moved it to the PCI_1 slot because it was easier to plug my graphics card into the PCI_3 slot (I know this is strange but I have a Thermaltake case that has the graphics card mounted with an extender cable).
I configured the BIOS to enable Thunderbolt, but there were many settings and I have no idea which ones are the correct for the card to work. There were several drivers I tried downloading but apparently the order matters?
HELP HELP HELP I really would like to get this drive online so I can offload some .r3d red footage…thanks!
