Plugged Drobo into USB and having issues


Ray

Recommended Posts

I have unassigned devices installed and planned on using the ext3 formatted Drobo S as a backup.  When I plug it in, get this in unassigned devices "Please wait, retrieving information ..."  but nothing ever shows.

 

This shows up in the log:

Is the Drobo just not compatible?

Two things come to mind:

 

1. Try a different USB port, is this from a USB 2 or USB 3 port? If it's a USB 3 port, try a USB 2 port.

2. Not sure if this is going to work anyway as the Drobo is a NAS not just an external hard drive, so the problem may be in USB communication and the Drobo may not be compatible.

Did you ever get it working? I'm getting the same "wait..." message.
