I just purchased a Western Digital WD15EADS Caviar Green 1.5TB SATA 32MB Cache 3.5IN HD and also an external docking Thermaltake Blacx. The docking seems not able to recognize the HD, but if I use an internal USB 2.0 enclosure (NexStar 3), either WinXP or Windows7 don’t have an issue with finding the HD.
If I use other type of SATA HD on the docking, they get recognized pretty easily, it is just this new HD that I am having trouble with.
From other forums I have done things like setting the HD speed limit to OPT1 and other things, but it does not seem to work.
Is this a firmware issue as some other people have got the same HD working on the docking station.
