Problem With Hot-Swappable Bays/SSD

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have two Samsung 830 SSDs and a Western Digital Caviar Black I would like to use in my Corsair 800D's hot swappable drive bays. I went to install all of these last night and one of the SSDs and the WD fit right in and have given me no problems since. The second SSD however, the computer will not recognize in either of the 2 remaining bays. So I took the SSD out and hooked it up directly to the motherboard and the computer would still not recognize it. I decided that one of my cables could be faulty so I replaced its cable with another cable that I have and the computer was then able to recognize it, but as soon as I used this new cable with the hot-swappable bay, the computer is once again no longer able to recognize the SSD. Does anyone know how I can resolve this?

Thank you in advance.

I've decided to just go ahead and put the drive somewhere else in my case. It would have been nice to have all of my drives be hot-swappable, but I suppose I can make due. It just seems to me though, that by doing this I am admitting that 2 of my hot-swappable bays and one SATA III cable are all broken, and that just seems too farfetched for me to believe.

I had the same problem with my 800D. I got a replacement backplane from Corsair that had the same problem.

I just removed the backplane and kept my disks in the hot swap bays. No need to put them somewhere else in the case. You also have 2 more spots for disks under the hot swap bays as well with the provided rails.

I took the ones on the bottom out to accomodate a radiator frown.gif.
