    Does it work if you plug it into your computer??

    Which would you plug where? I presume 1 to a plug socket, 1 to the hard drive and the 3rd to the back of the zgemmah2s. Let's call them 1, 2 and 3 starting from the left. Thanks. I'll try it in the lap top now.

    The middle plug goes into the USB port and the one on it's own goes into the drive.

    The enclosure I bought had its own power plug and it was just a straight forward USB cable going from hard drive into zgemma

    I would have thought so as it's not that hard to setup. If I can do it any one can [emoji23]

    I dont trust these boxes with USB HDD they just don't have enough power.
    I would connect both USB to the Zgemma to give the HDD more power.
    Better still get a powered HDD enclosure, or power brick for HDD.

    I fought all week with a 500GB USB HDD with a Edsion OS Mini which worked at first but for only around 15 mins before disappearing from the system.I found a powered HDD kit i had bought for connecting drives to a PC and used that for power and the USB for data only and was fine after that.

    Yeah I can't get my box to find the hard drive but as soon as I plug a 16g usb stick in it finds it straight away. Think I'll just have to use that for now and buy a different hard drive.
