DYNAMODE 2.5" and 3.5" SATA USB 3.0 Docking Station Tags: Hard Drives Storage Last response: January 22, 2013 4:56 AM in Storage Share Wisdom123_95 January 20, 2013 3:17:13 PM Hey So my computer just kept restarting and I have no disc etc to fix it. I opted to hopefully just transfer files to my laptop and took out the harddrive from my desktop comp. I bought the docking station. There are no instructions and there is also a disc but no serial number anywhere to be seen!!! Plugged everything in and the laptop is saying I need to format the disk in drive g before can proceed. I understand this will delete everything. Any tips as to what might be the problems? Thanks More about : dynamode sata usb docking station raraschek January 20, 2013 3:25:32 PM Use Linux live distribution, like Mint, where the drive will certainly show up. I ve been dealing with the same problem this weekend. Wisdom123_95 January 20, 2013 4:16:47 PM On My Computer it shows how much mb is free etc Can't find your answer ? Ask !
