External All in 1 HDD Docking Station

Q: External All in 1 HDD Docking Station

Hi All,

Just recently purchesed one of the All in 1 HDD Docking caddies from Ebay, but need some expert advice.

I am connecting a 200gb IDE HD which is being recognised as a removable disk, but not as a seperate HD.

Not sure if this is a driver issue but have installed everything on the disk.

To see the exact type of model I am using type: All in 1 HDD Docking - in google and its the first youtube result red front with a black body.

Regards,

Jon

SEAGATE is the model of HD, 200gb IDE, power sounds when plugging in, therefore something is live.

Hey folks. I've read similiar postings, but this is slightly different. I've got a HP Compaz NX9010 laptop running Windows XP on a docking station with an HP external monitor hooked up. The external monitor works fine with or without the laptop closed, but the external will not run video streams or saved video files. Video will only run on the laptop screen. The only way I can get video to run is to use the <function> toggle keys and disable the laptop screen which has to be done each time the laptop is booted. Is there any way to fix the settings so that this does not have to be done each time I'm docked? Thanks for any assistance or ideas you might have.

Hello, I have a lenovo T560 with a basic docking station. I would like to use two external monitors (without the in-build laptop monitor). The docking station has a VGA output and the laptop a build in HDMI output. It works fine with laptop monitor + HDMI and laptop monitor + VGA through docking station but can't figure out how to disable the laptop monitor and use the two external ones simulatiously. Any ideas would be very welcomed. Thank you, Alex

This is really strange, but when laptop is docked and headphones are unplugged from docking station I'll get a message from DTS Audio application that says "you just unplugged an audio device" and then both of my HP Compaq LA2206x monitors will go to sleep. The way to recover is remove laptop from docking station, open up to get display, then close and re-dock. My display adapters are AMD Radeon R7 M260X and Intel(R) HD Graphics 5500. My sound device is Realtek HD Audio. Is this an audio driver or display driver issue, or both? thanks.c

Hi, I am planning to gift a docking station and two monitors to my husband so that he may set up a work from home for his HP Elitebook 840. I would be very grateful if someone can tell me whether the HP Ultraslim Docking station is compatible with the monitors I have chosen , the dell U2414H . its specs are 2 HDMI MHL connectors, 1 mini dp, 1 dp 1.2a, 1 dp out MST, 4 USB 3.0 downstream and 1 upstream.Could someone tell me whether I can set up two of these with the HP Ultraslim docking station , what the compatibility is and what additional cables or adapters I will need to make them compatible.Thanks a ton.

Do you know which version of the HP Ultraslim Docking station  you have?    There were some specific changes in regards to the 2013 generation of the dock where the docking station has 2 x DisplayPorts instead of earlier versions that only had one DisplayPort and one VGA. If you have the later 2013 Generation docking station and have 2 x DisplayPorts,   those monitors should be fine.  And you'd of course need the two displayport cables to use with the monitors (monitors might come with them, but make very sure they do). The 2013 Model looks like this (2 Display ports to the right of the Network jack):http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/61ZSGNoW0sL._SL1500_.jpg Whereas the older model looks like this (single DisplayPort, next to the Network jack):http://content.hwigroup.net/images/products_xl/172474/hp-ultraslim-docking-station.jpg If the monitors do not come with cables,  I highly recommend Monoprice.com as your source for those or ANY cabling.   The link below is for 3 foot long cables, but depending on the layout of his desk, you might want 6-10 foot cables.  Below link is an example:http://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=13359   Brian

Hi all, I have a Thermaltake external eSATA docking Station that had no issues in Windows 7. Now with Windows 8.1, each time I power it on it will not be automatically recognized (not showing in "This PC"), I have to go to Device Manager and right click "Storage Controllers" and click "Scan for Hardware Changes". After doing this Windows 8.1 will pick it up and the external drive will show in "This PC". How can I fix this? Any ideas? Thanks

Hi,

Just replaced my OS (Win 8.1) Drive, and was planning on using the old drive as a back up.

This new (and old) drive have just the OS, all my programs and media etc are on other drives.

Can I put my old OS drive, with Windows 8.1 still installed, into a USB Docking Station, and use it as a back up boot drive. In other words will this drive boot from the Docking Station if I keep it up to date (Copy Disk regularly) in case of internal hard drive failure?

Thanks in advance?

A:Windows 8.1 - Wil EXternal Drive in Docking Station boot?

A regular poster on another forum does what you are suggesting. Except he takes it a step further. Since he builds his own, the system internal drive is in a quick release setup. If the drive has a problem he pulls it out and slides in the backup. He uses Macrium Reflect to image to the backup using a docking station.

But I've also heard from others that a drive in an enclosure will boot via USB. Some techs use that to boot into a fully working Windows system so they have all the tools needed to fix the customer system during a house call.

Don't ask me about licensing issues since I'm not an attorney. But the poster who does the haedware backup drive I would think is only using Windows on the one drive that is installed in the machine etc..

Hello, so I purchased the TB15 docking station thinking it would support up to 3 external monitors for the XPS 13, since it has a VGA, HDMI port and Display port mini. I can get 2 external monitors to work, but I can't get 3 to work. I wanted to keep the lid closed and use a 3 external monitor setup. I already purchased the monitors and my desk mount stand for 3 monitors... If the docking station won't work, does anyone know of any alternatives?

A:Does TB15 Docking station support 3 external monitors with XPS 13 9350?

Hi Can anyone tell me whether the Elitebook 2540p notebook or 2740p tablet can support dual monitors simultaneosly when used with a docking station I would assume that one monitor would be driven from the VGA socket, the other from DisplayPort If so, what range of screen resolutions are supported? I am looking to buying one of these models, but I need to know if this functionality is supported. ThanksJohn

A:Dual external monitor support with docking station on EliteB...

From HP: The key with supporting dual-monitors at the same time is that it requires that the notebook have dedicated graphics in there - which is not an option in the 2540p.  The first and smallest notebook to support this in the EliteBook line is the 14.0" 8440p - or we could look to the ProBook 6450b as another option too now. In a nutshell HP is being cheap or complacent.  I don?t get why they are sticking with Intel?s castrated graphics solution and why on the docking stations that do have deticated video like the fore mentioned 8440p they don?t enable 2 DVI-I (that?s Analog + DualLink Digital) instead of a single DVI-D and VGA. And the thing that really annoys me is that the intel intregated chip is capable of doing according to Intel own docs. AMD?s fusion can not come soon enough IMO.

Anyway, have you check the box which says "Extend my desktop onto this monitor"? in display properties? if that isnt selected they will just display mirror images like you say.

I have an old hard drive I think it is windows xp. i bought the blacX duet docking station so I can access the files on that old hard drive. I cannot figure out how to access the files?

Do I have to initialize the old hard drive? Do I have to create a partition? I thought I would be able to open the files by selecting the external hard drive and the proper file?

Help please, I don't want to do something incorrectly and loose all the files on the old one or fill up the new one by moving them all on to this new smaller hard drive which is windows 7.

I tried to initialize the old hard drive but I get this error instead "Data error Cyclic Redundancy check" ????

You just stick the disk into the dock and open it like any other USB attached drive. Since it comes from XP, it is probably an IDE disk. I hope you have an IDE dock and not a Sata dock.

Hi!
I have a Latitude E7740 that runs Ubuntu Xenial (16.04). I dock it to a "Dell EURO2 Advanced E-port II" docking station. 
If I boot it in the docking station, everything works fine, and I find all my two DVI-connected monitors. 
However, if I undock, then put it into the dock again while running, it fails to enable the screens. I'm using a script called autorandr for switching between display modes - it uses xrandr. It tries to run:
xrandr --output DP1-1 --gamma 1.0:1.0:1.0 --mode 1920x1200 --panning 0x0 --pos 0x0 --rate 59.95 --reflect normal --rotate normal --output DP1-2 --gamma 1.0:1.0:1.0 --mode 1920x1200 --panning 0x0 --pos 1920x0 --rate 59.95 --reflect normal --rotate normal
But the X server responds with:
X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)  Major opcode of failed request: 140 (RANDR)  Minor opcode of failed request: 21 (RRSetCrtcConfig)  Serial number of failed request: 48  Current serial number in output stream: 48
Running this exact command after booting in the dock is doing the right thing, but after undocking then docking, it doesn't work.
Any ideas here? I have updated to the latest BIOS version.
Problem also reported in launchpad with lot's of debug info, here:

File Transfer - Help Wanted

It will be from the old computer running Windows XP to a new computer running Windows 7.

The old computer has files which I have accumulated over a number of years, it is a mixture of those used rarely, used frequently and junk.

The chances are some of the files will never be used again, but they just might be wanted at some future date. I am therefore reluctant to scrap anything. Neither do I want to put a lot of possibly unnecessary files on the new computer.

I need to be able to search the old hard drive and recover a file if it is wanted.

The old computer is about 9 years old and is slow and may not be worth upgrading.

I now have two computers and one monitor and I am not sure what would be the best route.

I have not used a Docking Station before but thought this could be a possibility, on Amazon I found:

I am curious if anyone has had experience with dell d/port docking stations (port replicators). I formerly used a dell inspiron 8600 with its corresponding docking station to connect to all my peripherals. I recently purchased a new Dell latitude d630, but didn't want to spend the extra money for a new docking station. The old one seems to work fine, even though dell doesn't say they are compatible. Does anyone know if there are any long-term detrimental effects to using a potentially incompatible docking station? Thanks in advance!
 

A:Docking Station Advice

The only problem I can forsee is that the connector pins on the docking station might not match the computer. Most newer laptops use 2 alignment pins to ensure the piece stays in the dock. If you can't get a good connection or see flaky things happening while the laptop is docked, but not while it's out, get the matching docking station.

As an alternative, Kensington offers a USB based docking station. It's not a true dock, but a stationary connector for your peripherals.

I'm thinking about getting a docking station for my laptop, but I'm running into some confusions. First off, I don't know if my laptop is a ZBook 15 or a ZBook 15 G2. I think it's a ZBook 15 because it says "HP ZBook 15" on the bottom without the "G2" suffix. Also, it was issued to me by my university in August 2014, a month before the ZBook 15 G2 was announced. So unless my university was able to get early access to the G2's, it must just be a ZBook 15. Second, I don't know which docking stations are compatible with the ZBook 15. And I don't know what the merits of each of these docking station models are. I use a second monitor a lot with my laptop, which connects by VGA. So that's one thing I'd want the docking station to be able to support. Other than that I'd just want a bunch of USB ports, an audio port, and other stuff that I think is standard for a docking station. So, what advice can you give me?

I was initially having intermittent issues with keyboard and mouse so I swapped docking stations and now this came up.

Hi, I have a ProBook 6470b and a 640 G1 that I use with a HP 2012 90W docking station at home.  Just recently I've noticed that when I shut down the notebook as the power switches off the cooling fan starts at quite high speed and will run continuously until either the notebook is removed from the dock, or turned back on. If you remove the notebook and re-dock it straight away the while the fan is running after shutdown the fan will stop and restart.  If you undock one notebook when the fan is running as above, dock the other one, then swap them back again the fan does not restart, and also when you first dock the notebook while sleeping or powered down the fan does not start. Is there something that I have set in error to cause this behaviour?  It doesn't seem to affect the operation of the dock.  The change seems to have started since changing my old VGA monitor for one connected using the DVI-D port.  The other monitor is connected by Display Port. I have tried cleaning the connectors on both the dock and the notebooks.  Any help is appreciated.

Hi
We are running more than200 dell computers in our company. lately we purchased E7240 for some users but it looks like the AC adapter does not work with the Dell E-Port docking station we have and that cause the USB hubs not to function at all.
currently the workaround is to plug the AC adapter to the laptop instead of the docking station. is there anyone who had the same problem ? can give more information ?
our BIOS is updated to the latest version. also a message comes up when the ac adapter connected to the docking station before the windows boot up saying the ac adapter won't charge :()
Appreciate your help.
 
 

A:E7240 and docking station

Hi 1erans,
I’m sorry to hear that, thanks for the post though! I have not seen this issue reported by other E7240 users so I would like look into this for you. Could you clarify a few things:
 
Are all 200xE7240 systems are having exactly the same issue on dock or if the problem changes system to system?
 
Are all systems using the same model AC adapters / Batteries?
 
When USB fails, are both system and dock USB ports not functioning?
 
Have you been able to note the exact error message seen on the system pre OS?
 
Thanks,

Since it has become clear that I cannot trust the sales people at Dell, I will see if someone on this forum can recommend a docking station or port replicator that will work with the Inspiron 1525, XP Pro, SP3. The Dell folks had me order a Kensington SD 200V, with option for dual monitor. After hours of trying to make it work, the folks at Kensington told me that it is not compatible with XP SP3.

I would love it if I could find a docking station like my old IBM Thinkpad, where even the power for the laptop was taken care of at the docking station. Guess that's not possible with a Dell.

I do want to use an external monitor, speakers.

Any suggestions, even for somewhere else to search?

Thanks,
Barbara
 

A:Recommendation for Docking Station?

I am not seeing anything like that for your model.
With all the connections that are shown for your model
at the dell website,it's probably not needed.
You have connections to hook up an external monitor,
or even an HDTV by vga or HDMI.
I imagine you could connect speakers to one of the headphone
jacks,but might want to use a USB sound card instead to
keep the wires out of the way.
Sorry I couldn't find exactly what you were looking for.

Does anyone know how to get that back or where to download it from as it was really helpful to have!?

The laptop which I have (Inspiron 1525) was purchased from dell.com.

A:T61 docking station worth it?

I'll throw in my  two cents on this one.  I have both the 2505 and 2504 docks.  I much prefer the 2504's because they have a DVI video and a separate audio output that the 2505 doesn't,  besides they both sell for about the same used.  The DVI output allows a digital video signal that hooks up directly to a monitor with same or I use a DVI to HDMI cable to hook up to a HDMI port.  I have speakers already hooked up to the audio and the mouse and keyboard hooked to the USB ports on the dock, and a dedicated, to the dock, power adapter.  This allows me to plug in the laptop, power up and everthing boots up without even having to raise the laptop lid by setting up the video to go to the monitor screen.   I have them set up in multiple locations so can move my laptop easily to areas where I want to use it for:  music, internet, videos, etc.  These docks are readily available and inexpensive. As far as heat both docks are designed to raise the laptop off the surface and have venting to allow air to go underneath the fan area as well as air vents in the upper corner where the fan is located.  I am not sure how effective this is but it does seem to be a well thought out design so I am sure it does some good but probably not enough to prevent the well documented NVIDIA issue.  I have both laps with the Intel gpu and NVIDIA and none have failed so far. I am running Windows 7 on...

I have two users who both Dell Latitude laptop computers. When they power up the computers, they are able to set their graphics to the desired level (1280x760). If they power up the computers while on a docking station they are able to set the graphics to a different level (1024X768) and this works fine.

The problem they have is if the machine is already powered on (1280x760) and the dock the system, the graphics on the external monitor will go to 800x600, totally disregarding what they had set the graphics for. They are able to change it back and it is fine again.

Why does this only occur when the machine is powered on already and they are trying to dock it? Is there some setting that needs to be changed?

Searched site for info on HD docking station. No threads answered my questions.

Even though I received some wonderful help from some of you recently, I couldn't get rid of a virus on an older computer. I've decided to buy an HD docking station and hopefully transfer some of my needed and wanted files to another HD. This HD is brand new with nothing on it. Will I be able to transfer files to it if it doesn't have an operating system?

I'm definitely not going to do a mass transfer, I'll pick and chose .jpgs, videos and documents. No .exe programs what-so-ever.

Will this way be safe to keep the pesky virus on the old PC? Once I have everything I want off the old PC, I'll give it a complete restore with the original Windows.

I'd appreciate any help.

Hey guys,

Working with a Dell Latitude E6410, upgraded to Windows 7, i5 processor, solid state drive. When running the computer on a docking station, it works perfect for 5-10 minutes. Goes though encryption software fine, boots Windows fine. Can log user in, load browsers, play audio through the docking station, etc etc. After a short while, it randomly goes into blue screen.. Error: "IRQL Not Less or Equal"..., and reboots. Replaced motherboard, problem still exists. Reformatted solid state drive and reloaded Win 7... still happens.

Keep in mind this is ONLY when plugged into the docking station. Also blue screens on other docking stations as well.

Any idea's on what this could be? I can't get the exact codes from the BSoD right now, but any insight on what to look for would be great.

Thanks
 

A:BSoD ONLY when on Docking Station?

Go to the Control Panel \ Administrative Tool \ Event Viewer and check the logs there for any errors that have occurred for the date and time of the BSOD. If you find the error in the logs you can copy and past the error here.

Purchased a Winstars Docking Station at Maplin today (see link below for product details).

The box says XP, Vista and W7. A techy at Maplin assured me that it was a "bog-standard" USB hub and that it would work with no problems with W8.1 (and it is a W8.1 computer that I want to use it with).

No, it does not work with W8.1 (see Screenshot attached for error message)

There is nothing wrong with the unit itself. Tested on other computers (XP, Vista, W7) - installs automatically, visible in Explorer, visible in Disk Management, works with all types of disk media. Perfect - except that it does not work with W8.1.

I have updated the Driver. Rebooted. Tried different USB ports. Same error message.

For some reason my CD-ROM doesn't want to work it seems like the drivers are installed but it gives an exclamation mark. I tried all sort of things like installing it and reinstalling it and I tried getting updates from Microsoft Updates. Also I tried getting it from Sony.com but it seems that since my notebook was made for XP it doesn't have any drivers for Vista. So I will have to find them myself somehow. I have Windows Vista Home Basic. My notebook is the Sony PCG-R505ESP. I really need help on this please since if I don't make my CD-ROM work then I can't install any programs that uses a CD.

I can say that Win XP and 2000 has no problem with the CD-ROM only Vista has this problem but it might actualy be the driver but I don't know.

On the device manager it says "This device cannot start. (Code 10)"

I also looked to see if there is any filters on the regedit but there wasn't any so that is strange.

This is the model of my CD-ROM

"Sony i.LINK CD-RW DVD-ROM Drive IEEE 1394 SBP2 Device"

Just to let you guys know that my notebook is a docking system so the CD-ROM is attached to the dock.

Everything else seems to work perfectly fine but just the CD-ROM doesn't work at all.

Thank You​

But my questions is where can I get the XP driver?

At my work, I have a laptop that is hooked to a docking station. I've only been here for a little while, so yesterday was the second time that I undocked it. The first time, I did not use a power cord when I undocked it. It worked fine when out of the station. I used a power cord the second time. Before I left work, I put it back in the docking station, and I left. This morning, the laptop wouldn't start (in the docking station). I removed it from the station and tried to start it without the station. It still wouldn't start. Finally, I used the power cord and it began charging and would also start. After a while, I tried putting it back in the docking station, but it still would not charge. So right now, I am undocked and charging with the power cord.

Yes HP no longer makes true "docking stations" for its consumer laptops. A docking station is a snap-down platform that provides power to the laptop and replicates ports and allows for expansion such as additional hard drives, etc. Best you can do is to use a USB 3.0 "port replicator" many of which come with video and all the ports you could want but do not power the laptop. You still need to connect an AC adapter directly to the laptop to use the port replicator.  There are lots of these on the market. HP makes one and others do, too. Post back if you need any help. Expect to pay around $100 +/- for one with video. https://www.amazon.com/HP-3005PR-USB-Port-Replicator/dp/B008KMDVPQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1475009377... If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

I was wondering if anyone has had any experience using a Non-Toshiba supplied "docking station" on a Toshiba consumer grade "Satellite" laptop ?

I had purchased one of Toshiba's PA3575U-1PRP dynadock U Universal USB Docking Stations, but found the video performance so bad that I returned it. Even non-movie type applications, such as loading web pages, were excruciatingly slow, choppy and painful. And yes, my Toshiba laptop is up to the task being a late model with Dual Centrino Core 2 processor / 2-GB RAM / 7200RPM drive / 128-MB of shared video.

I see where both Belkin and Kennington offer similar units. (Note, on the NewEgg site the Kennsington model is also rated as being very poor in video response as well !!) There may be others ?

What has been your experience and your recommendation ??

Ideally, I want to be able to connect my Toshiba laptop with a single cable and not have to mess around screwing in the monitor cable, along with plugging in the PS2 plugs for the mouse and keyboard. Something you have to do if you simply rely on just a USB port extender.

Thanks

Please advise quick response requested (ASAP)! Need to recover old hard drives from HP laptop, Dell desktop & Western Digital external drive. Must have IDE, SATA capabilities and reasonably priced. Would like to purchase a device that will allow me to transfer the old data to my new Windows 10 laptop with the cloud. Preferable so all my files can be stored in one location.

Hi All,
I work from a home office and my company has now supplied me with a business laptop as I was using my personal laptop. I would like to get a docking station which would be able to dock a Toshiba Satellite Series 1130/1135 (personal computer) during non-office hours and then Toshiba Satellite Pro 4300 (smaller latpop) during business hours. Is there some type of universal docking station that would work with two different types of laptops? If yes, where would be the best place to buy one? I would have printer, internet, scanner and external hard drive hooked up to the docking station.

Thanks for your advise.

Pat

I don't think they even make docks for your Pro I couldn't find any at Toshiba's site.
