HGST Ultrastar Power Disable Feature

There is a simple fix if you find yourself in a situation where an Ultrastar SATA HDD is not spinning up. By using a simple “Molex to SATA” power connector (Figure 1) to supply power to the HDD, you can usually eliminate the problem. Changing the power connector effectively removes power from P3 (Pin 3) and allows the drive to spin up normally.

 

 

microserver gen8's use a molex to sata cable..

Thanks Shonk!

 

Now I can confirm that everything is working well, the drives are spinned up and recognized succesfully.
