F.A.Q

Why does my USB device stop working after my computer wakes back up from sleep mode in Windows?

If the USB device does not work after your computer has been in extended hibernation, it is likely that Windows has automatically turned off the USB Root hub to save power. 

The steps below outline how to configure the USB root hub to stay on during hibernation, to prevent this from happening.
 

Windows 10 / 8

On your keyboard, press the Windows key + X and select Control Panel.
Click Hardware and Sound, then click Power Options.
Click Change plan settings for the plan you want to change.
Click Change advanced power settings.
Click the plus sign (+) next to “USB settings” and “USB selective suspend setting” to expand the options and change the setting to Disabled.
Click OK to apply the setting.
Note: You may need to disconnect and re-connect your USB device after applying these settings to re-establish the connection.

Windows 7 / Vista

Click the Start button and select Control Panel.
Click Hardware and Sound, then click Power Options.
Click Change plan settings for the plan you want to change.
Click Change advanced power settings.
Click the plus sign (+) next to “USB settings” and “USB selective suspend setting” to expand the options and change the setting to Disabled.
Click OK to apply the setting.
Note: You may need to disconnect and re-connect your USB device after applying these settings to re-establish the connection.

Windows XP

On your desktop, right-click the My Computer icon and select Properties.
Click the Device Manager tab.
Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers by clicking the arrow to the left of it.
Right-click the first USB Root Hub device and select Properties.
Click the Power Management tab.
Clear the box next to Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power.
Click OK to apply the setting.
Repeat steps 4-7 for any remaining devices in the Universal Serial Bus Controllers section with “Root Hub” in the name.
Note: You may need to disconnect and re-connect your USB device after applying these settings to re-establish the connection.

How can I tell if my hard drive adapter can power my hard drive?

The hard drive adapter requires power from your system's USB port. Although you can plug in any standard SATA drive, USB ports only supply a limited amount of power and are not able to power all of the SATA drives plugged into the cable.

As a general rule, the hard drive adapter only supports 2.5 in. hard drives (HDD) and solid state drives (SSD). 3.5 in. drives typically require a 12V power connection, which is not provided by the USB port or the hard drive adapter.

The power capabilities of the USB port combined with the power requirements of the attached drive will determine if the hard drive adapter will work in your setup. The power (in mA) supplied by the USB port must be greater than the requirements of the drive.

If you are using a USB 2.0 port, your port will only be able to supply a maximum of 500 mA (0.5 A). If you are using a USB 3.0 port, your port will be able to supply a maximum of 900 mA (0.9 A).

You can usually find the power requirements of your drive in the technical specifications on the label of the drive or on the manufacturer's website.

Will I need a power supply to make this work?

No. The SATA to USB-C adapter cable has both the SATA and the power adapter portion built into it. Appropriate power is derived from the USB-C connection.

Does it come with Data transferring software?

No, this product does not include data transferring software. The data transfer can typically be handled using the operating system's utilities.
