DISK DIRECTOR 12 STILL CAN'T READ MY 3TB DRIVES???
Does anyone have any feedback as to why DD12 which I just installed cannot read my 3TB USB 3.0 drives?
This was why I stopped using DD11!
Thanks so much.
you are right, disks with logical sector size different from 512 byte are still not supported. However, size of a logical sector usually depends on connection interface and as a workaround you can connect the disk directly to the disk controller on the motherboard via SATA/IDE/SAS/FC cables.
Please find more details in this article.
I can operate on my Seagate Backup Plus Drive with Disk Director 10, do you have a copy; also, with the free copy of EaseUS Partition Manager available from www.easeus.com.
Neither DDS 10 nor EaseUS PM can change cluster size on 3T disks, though. I have a workaround for it, I think.
I would suspect that really puts a severe limit on the portability of buying a USB 3.0 portable drive! That is the Wrong Answer to people who in good faith spent money buying the Disk Director 12 program. Limitations of a previous release should be corrected in new releases going forward. This was a problem in DD11 and is the reason some of us bought the NEW DD12. WHy would anyone buy a new version when it is still broken?
