Q: Does MB024SP-B support the new SATA 3.3 Power Disable feature (PWDIS)?
A: The MB024SP-B does not support the SATA 3.3 PWDIS feature. If you install the SATA HDD/SSD with PWDIS in MB024SP-B , the drive will not spin, and the system won't detect the drive. See the list below for known SATA HDD/SSD with the PWDIS feature.
Known SATA HDD/SSD with Power Disable Feature (PWDIS)
Note: the SAS hard drive or SSD does not use the Pin 3 of SATA power connector for PWDIS feature and compatible with MB024SP-B .
While we recommend to avoid using the SATA HDD/SSD with PWDIS, you can use the methods below to disable the PWDIS feature physically if you already purchased the drive:
Method 1 – Using the Molex to SATA adapter or cable to disconnect the power to Pin 3 of the SATA power connector.
|Molex to SATA Adapter||Molex to SATA Cable|
Method 2 – Placing Kapton tape on Pin 1-3 of the SATA power connector to isolate the 3.3V power, as shown below.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if the problem persists.
Q: The mounting screws for the device seem to be too short to secure the device onto my system, what should I do?
A: For computer cases that have a thick metal sheet, the included mounting screws (M3*2.5L) may not fully secure the device. Please use longer screws (M3*4L) to secure the device or contact us at email@example.com for replacement screws.
