Subject MB974SP-2B - Power buttons
Content Dear Icydock

Does the enclosure/relavent power button remember whether a drive is set to on or off between complete system shutdowns, or are the drives always off each time the system is powered on?
Reply Hello,

The MB974SP-2B power buttons stay in the set position even if the system gets shut down.

best regards.

Subject MB559U3-1SB How to check & update the enclosure's Firmware.
Content Could you please explain how to check & if required, update my units Firmware.
Thank you!
Reply Dear Brian,

If your device works fine and you do not wish to add the sleep mode setting there is no need to upgrade the firmware.

Currently all units available have the stock firmware without sleep mode installed.

If you download the firmware via the website an upgrade manual is included.

Best regards.

Reply Dear Soz,

It is possible that enclosure didn't detect the drives. There is a reset button on the back of the enclosure, please press it for couple seconds while the enclosure power is on to reset the chipset. This should resolve the 8GB issue.

Thank you,

Subject Disks, Fan coolers and leds are not powered on MB973SP-B
Content Hi, I just got 2 MB973SP-B and mounted them in my PC. I plugged the power cables and sata cables as described in to manual. But we I power on my PC, nothing append with the MB973SP-B devices. The HDD, the fan coolers and the leds are all off. I did test the power cables plugging them directly on the HDD and they are fine. Please, could you advice ? I didn't see any switch on the devices!

Reply Dear Customer,

The Blue LED in the front has individual power buttons for each drive and are defaulted to be turned off. The power button has also been designed to be child proof, so please "firmly" press the power button to turn on each drive.
