    • Seagate IronWolf 6TB hdd not found on usb enclosure

      Hi all
      First of all, thanks so much for does that spend a lot of time in creating OMV is just amazing.
      I am new to OMV and nas tip of system.
      I managed to install OMV on a older laptop on a 120G ssd and it runs like a charm.
      Only problem i have is related to my 2 Seagate IronWolf 6TB NAS drives. Since i use a laptop i have to use the usb ports to connect my 2 HDD problem is that they are not recognize when i insert them in WD usb external enclosure. When i insert the 2TB HDD in it works fine OMV sees the hdd without a problem.
      Can someone point me in the right direction? Why my 2 nas drivers cannot be sen by my usb adapter?
      If i insert them in my pc (tower) they are recognized and works fine but not trough the adapters.
      I tried 2 adapters and all the usb ports on my laptop and no works. I formatted the HDD with fat and ntfs seams not to do any difference.
      I assume must be something with the 2 NAS HDD, is any thing that i can do to make them work?

      Thanks you so much for any help in this matter, i searched the net but it seams that i can't find anything to explain why is not working.

      Thanks again any help is much appreciated.
