Q: My NVMe drive did not detect after inserting it back into the device while powered on?
A: For systems that support hot-plug function, while your system is powered on, each drive insertion and removal cycle will require a manual refresh from the operating system in order for the system to recognize the drive.
If you are unable to detect the drive after performing the manual refresh, your system might not support hot-plug functions. We suggest you check with the motherboard/add-on card manufacturer to see if it supports the NVMe hot-plug function.
Windows 11 / Windows 10 / Windows 8 – In the search box on the taskbar, type Device Manager, then select from the menu, right-click on the disk drive and then select scan for hardware changes.
Windows 7 – Right-click on computer icon on desktop and select properties, click Device Manager, right-click on the disk drive and then select scan for hardware changes.
Q: Is the ICY DOCK NVMe enclosure supporting the PCIe 4.0 standard?
A: Yes, all ICY DOCK NVMe enclosures support the PCIe 4.0 standard. However, the bandwidth will be limited to PCIe 3.0 when connecting a PCIe 3.0 device to a PCIe 4.0 host.
Q: I want to see the drive status from the front panel on PC case/chassis. What should I do?
A: There is a 2-pin front panel header(s) on the PCBA of the product. The drive status can be displayed from the front panel after connecting the front I/O wire to the corresponding 2-pin header of the product. For detailed connected methods, please refer to the user manual of the PC case/chassis.
Note: The I/O wire connected to the PC case/chassis are not included in the product package.
Icy Dock impressively demonstrates how easy it can be to replace a U.2 or U.3 SSD. Among others, we test a Crucial T700 1TB M.2 PCIe 5.0 NVMe SSD with a special Icy Dock EZConvert adapter on an ASRock Z790 Riptide WiFi motherboard in this PCIe card and want to see how well it works in practice.
What is PCIe Expansion Slot
A PCIe (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express) expansion slot is a type of slot on a computer's motherboard that allows for the installation of PCIe expansion cards. These cards can provide additional functionality to a computer, such as graphics processing, network connectivity, or storage.
