Hopefully you can help me resolve this issue. Basically it seems like I’ve tried everything, resets, firmware updates, power down for days and nothing works.
My issue: I boot up Drobo 5N and it is detected by my Mac, but none of the HDDs inside get detected. All I get is the single solid red light on Drive Bay 0.
I tried inserting the drives in different locations, by themselves and all together and nothing seems to work. My Drobo 5N gets recognized every time but it’s always asking me to insert a drive. The drives themselves work because I’m able to connect them separately on a SATA to USB adapter.
The PSU seems to be working fine, solid green light, the right amount of juice to power the Drobo every time.
So any ideas what this could be? I’ve tried disassembling the unit and reconnecting each port and nothing seems to get me past this single solid red light.
Your help is greatly appreciated. I’m glad to see the forums back online!!! When the forums were done, I was about ready to give up.
