Hard Drive Docking Station
Item-No. 97 52 20
Intended Use
This product is intended to be connected to a Power eSATA port (also designated "Power over
eSATA") that, in addition to the eSATA data signal, also provides a circuit voltage of +5V/DC and
+12V/DC. A 6.35-cm/2.5" SATA hard drive or a 8.89cm/3.5" SATA hard drive can be installed in
the docking station.
This product complies with the applicable National and European requirements. All names of

Safety Instructions
The warranty will be void in the event of damage caused by failure to observe
these safety instructions! We do not assume any liability for any consequen-
tial damage!
Nor do we assume any liability for material and personal damage caused by
improper use or non-compliance with the safety instructions! The warranty
will be null and void in such cases.
• The unauthorised conversion and/or modification of the product is inadmissible
because of safety and approval reasons (CE). Never dismantle the product.
• The product is only intended for use in dry, indoor locations. No part of the product
must be allowed to get damp or wet.
• The product is not a toy and should be kept out of the reach of children.
• Do not leave packing materials unattended. They may become dangerous play-
things for children.
• Handle the product with care, it can be damaged by impacts, blows, or accidental
drops, even from a low height.
• Connect the Power eSATA port on the docking station via the Power eSATA cable enclosed
to a corresponding Power eSATA port on your computer.
The Power eSATA port on your computer, or one of your adapter cards used,
must provide a operating voltage of both +5 V/DC and +12 V/DC.
Many Power eSATA ports (primarily on notebooks), however, only provide a opera-
ting voltage of +5 V/DC. In such cases, only a 6.35cm/2.5" hard disk can be used in
the docking station.
Conventional 8.89cm/3.5" hard drives, however, require both operating voltages, so
these will not function on such a Power eSATA connection.
If your computer does not have an appropriate port available, you can, for example,
install the Power eSATA Card (Conrad Order No. 975124). This card provides both
operating voltages (+5 V/DC and +12 V/DC).
• Place the docking station on a flat, stable surface. Protect valuable furniture surfaces by using
a suitable mat.
General Operating Information
USB hard drives, generally, can be connected to, as well as disconnected, from a computer
during use (so long data is not being transferred). An arrow symbol in the menu bar allows dis-
connection from the PC, in Windows operating systems.
However, such a procedure is usually not possible with SATA or eSATA.
If a SATA hard drive (i.e. a hard drive connected via eSATA) is disconnected from
the PC during use, this action leads in many cases to a complete loss of data.
Depending on the SATA/eSATA controller or port used, SATA/eSATA devices do not cause
Windows to display the arrow symbol, which allows the user to disconnect the drive from the
computer ("Safely Remove Hardware"), in the menu bar.
The reason is that a USB drive is connected as a removable drive; a SATA drive or a drive used
Version 11/10
via eSATA, however, usually is not.
Thus, data in the Windows cache or the cache of the drive itself is not immediately stored on the
drive - which leads to a loss of data if the drive is disconnected or switched off.
Inserting a Hard Drive
• Disconnect the docking station.
• Insert a SATA hard drive (either 6.35cm/2.5" or 8.89cm/3.5") with the correct orientation in the
opening of the docking station. Do not exert any force. Do not touch the hard drive or the elect-
ronic components!
• Connect the docking station; the Power LED will light up.
• Start the operating system; afterwards, the hard drive will be available from Windows, if it is
partitioned and formatted.
Removing the Hard Drive from the Docking Station
• Save all data and shut down the operating system.
• After the PC has been turned off, disconnect the docking station. Finally, wait long enough (at
least 15 seconds) for the magnetic disk of the drive to come to a stop. Please handle the drive
• Now, pull the hard drive vertically up, out of the docking station.
Using a dry, soft, lint-free cloth is sufficient to clean the product.
Do not use aggressive cleaning agents as these can cause discolouration.
Do not press too strongly on the surface, to prevent scratch marks.
Dust can easily be removed using a clean, long-haired brush and a vacuum cleaner.

If no arrow symbol appears in the Windows menu bar for the docking station with the
hard drive inserted (e.g. with many modern SATA controllers with the "hot swap"
function), we therefore recommend you disconnect the SATA/eSATA connection
(i.e. disconnect the docking station) only when the operating system has been shut
When a SATA hard drive is connected to a computer already running, automatic
hardware recognition, as in Windows, will not normally succeed. For the drive to be
recognized, a manual search for new hardware must be performed in the Windows
Control Panel.
If the drive is not yet partitioned and formatted (e.g. if you are using a new drive), this
task must be carried out in the Windows Control Panel. Only then can data be stored
on the drive.
Do not move the drive while it is in use. This can cause the read/write head to touch
the magnetic disk. This not only causes a loss of data but also damages the drive!
Disconnecting the docking station from a running computer can lead to a total loss
of data. SATA functions differently from USB; pay attention to the section "General
Operating Information" above in this operating manual.
On the Internet, there are a variety of utility programs for disconnecting a SATA drive
that is in use. However, these programs offer no guarantee that data will not be lost!
Electrical and electronic products do not belong in the household waste!!
Please dispose of the device when it is no longer of use, according to the current sta-
tutory requirements.
