FAQ

Why can't I use the hotswap function when the docking station is connected through eSATA?

For some types of motherboard, you need to activate hotswap in the motherboard's BIOS. It is also necessary to have AHCI activated on your PC. See the documentation for your PC to find out how this is done.
