How to power down G RAID mini with FW800 on Mac

Postby Nchee1421 » Dec 17th, '13, 18:24

Hi,

I recently bought a G RAID mini and connected it to my Mac using the FW800 port. The power from the FW800 is sufficient to power the G RAID mini. However, when I shut down my mac, the G RAID mini does not power down. Is there a way to manually shut down the G RAID mini without unplugging?

Hi Nchee1421,

Thanks for posting. Even in the off state most desktop computers will send some power through the external ports. The g-raid mini does not have an independent power switch so as such the drive will not turn until it is unplugged.
