Icy Dock is proud to introduce a brand new item to its innovative product line, the MB981U3-1SA 2.5"/3.5" SATA & IDE Hard Drive Docking Station with SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface. This product is packed with features and gives the term docking station a whole new meaning.

The first feature of the device is a direct connection through the top slot for 2.5" and 3.5" SATA hard disk and solid state drives, allowing a user to access their drive via SuperSpeed USB 3.0. 2.5" drives can be used on the go being powered by the USB bus, while 3.5" drives utilize a small form factor wall power supply that can be easily stowed away in a laptop bag or briefcase. The anti-dust cover on the top is divided into 2 pieces, so that if a 2.5" drive is inserted, only the smaller portion of the cover opens up, leaving the electronics inside safe from dust and debris.

will this unit help to repair a Hard Drive with MBR faults? without putting the drive into the machine.

Asked by: grumble guts
Unfortunately, I do not know how you would go about fixing MBR faults so can't comment on the usefulness of the product. What I can say is this product will allow you to connect a HDD to a PC via a usb cable.

My HDD has refused to boot. The disc repair function is unable to resolve the problem so I need to gain access to my files and will be able to create a recovery disc. Will this be possible using your adapter to treat my drive as a removable one? thanks
Asked by: Anonymous
Assuming it is a SATA drive, then yes this will be fine .
