A: The RocketStor 5212, like all Thunderbolt™ devices, requires that the Thunderbolt™ cable be connected to the RocketStor 5212, and the host system, in order to power on.  Double-check the Thunderbolt™ cable connections to the RocketStor 5212 and host system.  Try a second Thunderbolt™ cable, if available. In addition, try cleaning the tip of each Thunderbolt™ cable with alcohol to ensure a secure connection.

2. Q: Why can’t I access my hard drive when inserted into the RocketStor 5212?

A: Your HDD might need to be formatted by Apple Disk Utility. The HDD may also have a file system that is not recognized by Apple OS X

A: Yes, this is possible - both devices can be accessed simultaneously.

4. Q: Why there is no power switch on the RocketStor5212? How can I power off the dock?

1. Q: My RocketStor 5212 is not detected by the system. What can cause this?

A: There is no power to RS5212. Confirm if the Thunderbolt™ cable is inserted to RS5212 and your Mac system. Finally check the power adapter cable and make sure it’s connected.

2. Q: Why is the HDD inserted into the RocketStor 5212 not detected by OS X?

After following the steps above, reattach the Thunderbolt™ and power cables, and then plug them back into the Mac system.
