Q: I'm connecting SATA SSD to the MB411SPO-2B, but the drives did not show up in my system. However, when I connect the SSD directly to the motherboard/add-on card, I can access the SSD without a problem.
A: It may be the SATA signal decreasing when connecting multiple bridges at the same time and causing the issue. Using a higher quality or shorter cable may solve this problem. However, if the problem occurs after replacing the cable, it may be the SSD/HDD you are using requires 12V power, which is not supported by MB411SPO-2B. The MB411SPO-2B is using the Slimline SATA power that does not carry the 12V power. Therefore, please avoid choosing the SSD/HDD that requires 12V power.
Please see the list below for the SATA drive that using the 12V power.
|Seagate||Nytro 1351||XA3840LE10063 / XA1920LE10063 / XA960LE10063 / XA1920LE10083 / XA960LE10083 / XA1920LE10103 / XA960LE10103|
|Nytro 1551||XA384ME10063 / XA1920ME10063 / XA960ME10063 / XA1920ME10083 / XA960ME10083 / XA1920ME10103 / XA960ME10103|
|IronWolf 110||ZA3840NM10001 / ZA1920NM10001 / ZA960NM10001|
Note: The MB411SPO-2B does not support SAS HDD/SSD, which also requires 12V power to be operated.
Q: Which laptops are incompatible?
A: Due to specific features of laptop design, there are certain models of laptops that are not compatible with the MB411 and MB511 series. One stems from the physical form factor and the other stems from the pinout design of the optical drive bay connector. Regarding the pinout design, there are 4 different pinout design currently in use, referred as A, B, C, D modes. The MB411 and MB511 series uses the C mode of pinout.
As of now, this is the known list of incompatible laptops:
All Lenovo models, Dell M4800, M4801, M6800, HP M7
Not being on the list of incompatible laptops does not guarantee functionality of the MB411 and MB511 series in the laptop. It is best to contact the manufacturer of the laptop to determine optical drive bay pinout design.
