  1. To install in the Mac Pro: 1) Unplug the computer and touch something metal to ground yourself. 2) Unlock the case and take off the side door. 3) Lay the computer down. 4) There are 2 spring-loaded finger screws covering the available PCIe slots. Remove the 2 screws and take off the lock holding down the open PCIe cards. 5) Insert the USB card into an available PCIe slot (I used slot 3, for example). Make sure it's nice and snug in the PCIe slot 6) Take one end of the SATA "Y-Connector", the side that has the "Y" with 2 of the same connector, and plug one of those into the Inateck card. 7) Take the other end of the SATA connector, the side that you cut the plastic off, and connect it to an available SATA POWER port in your Mac Pro (available hard-drive bay). 8) Put the PCIe cover back up using the spring-loaded finger screws. 9) Close up your computer 10) Power on and Enjoy. By the way, I highly recommend a new Inateck card for Mac Pro, which dosen't need additional power connection.
  2. The device I am using is external USB 3.0 hub. Shouldn't my speed be much higher than what I have been getting with usb 2.0? Also I did not know that USB 3.0 has a different cord. I looked at the ports on my laptop and 2 say "SS" with the USB symbol.
  3. I've just recently bought a new laptop which includes USB 3.0 ports. Here is the thing they may be slow very slow. My external HDD and my flash drives support high speed USB but my flash usually only gets around 7 mbps and my 1T external only goes up to about 25 mbps. We have tried our USB ports all the same. Even checked device manage to confirm that I have 3. 0 that has been enhanced ports. I don't get what’s going on. If somebody might help me it might be greatly appreciated.
  4. Please recommend me an 3.5" external drive enclosure that won't require me to pay my firstborn. Cheaper is best, but reliability is much more important. Earlier this week, I really learned a thing that I became told, but had brushed off: RAID isn't backup. I came across this out when my Intel controller messed up the RAID1 array and messed with all the partitions until the system couldn't boot. As I didn't support properly, as I should have, I'm in the process of recovering my children photos and important documents, and they're all readable because of some recovery software a pal recommended. Can't say I'm really unlucky, as it could have been a lot worse. Considering that I don't desire to be so careless with irreplaceable data, I need a proper backup system. My computer drives in the system are 750GB in RAID 1, and so i figured a 1TB SpinPoint F3 will be a good drive to set up an enclosure. Real question is, what enclosure can i get? USB is a must, eSATA is "nice to have". I'm not rich uncle Pennybags, so don't recommend anything crazy expensive, on the other hand don't want really cheap issues that could corrupt data or will die into two months. Any recommendations?
  5. Thinkpad X220

    uh huh, I am thinking about buy one Mac air, how is Thinkpad X220?
  6. The docking station provides computer owners with instant access to extra storage by letting any 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch SATA hard drive to become easily connected. Once the hard disk drive is seated within the docking station, one can read and write data for it, run programs, or even format the drive for future use. Even though the docking station is simple to operate, problems may arise from time to time. How to resolve these issues and acquire my hardware working again?
  7. oh, nobody has answered, waiting for respond. TIA and merry Xmas.
  8. The iPhone is compatible with a variety of BlueTooth devices, including keyboards and ear pieces. To use a Mac BlueTooth with your iPhone for phone calls, you must first pair the two devices. When BlueTooth is enabled, your iPhone will automatically detect new calls and let you answer them via the earpiece. To make a phone call into a speaker call, just tap the "Speaker" icon on the menu that appears during the call. Have you tried?
  9. I irrationally want a Mac mini

    Well, I want a Mac Book Air.
  10. Not Long Ago I found a peripheral manufacturer called Inateck provide USB3.0 express card for Mac computer and Mac Pro desktops. Using PCI-E USB 3.0 interface express card, it's in keeping with PCI-E 2.0 specification, as well as theoretical transfer speed reaches in order to 5.0Gbps. As long as there is extra PCI-E connector on your own motherboard, it can guide two USB 3.0 interface, allowing faster transfer speeds and time savings.
  11. Inateck KTU3FR-4PA USB3.0 express card is compact, an easy task to install and ideal in workmanship with silver surface matched with Mac Pro. All solid capacitors to increase the area of the metal cooling holes are extremely conducive to internal chip cooling. Appearance and workmanship are both excellent. I was very content with the performance of USB 3.0 express card. USB3.0 speed is superfast particularly with SSD. All things considered, the express card might be properly supported under Mac system.
  12. Which USB3 Express Card to buy?
