I have a usb2.0 hard drive cloning dock and I have noticed the lights turning purple alot when I attempt to clone drives lately. for example, my coworker just put an 80GB source drive and a 120GB target drive in the dock. He hit the power button, pressed the clone button,waited 5 seconds then pressed the clone button again and 5 lights came on. the lights are purple,blue,red,blue,purple.


the source drive has been tested and boots up fine when inside a pc so I don't beleive the drive is bad. We also tried 3 different target drives and the purple light showed up everytime and the clone failed.


Can someone tell me what the purple light signifies? is my dock failing?

Hi,

I would recommend a return, as it shouldn't stop mid clone on a number of disks.
