Frequent Asked Questions
Q: What's the difference between the MB882SP-1S-1B and the MB882SP-1S-2B?
A: The MB882SP-1S-1B version is the first of its kind in this product line. The top door hinges open, and the drive is connected and disconnected to the SATA interface via a metal tray that slides into and out of the connection as the door opens and closes.

The MB882SP-1S-2B version was our second addition to this product line and is what we call our "simple version. This device uses a top door that comes all the way off, and uses a simpler mechanism to connect the drive to the SATA connection. As the door is slid into place, it pushes a flap inside the box which in turn pushes the drive into the SATA connection.

Q: What is the difference between MB882SP-1S-1B(2B) and MB382SP-3B and MB982SP-1S?
A:The MB882SP-1S-1B(2B) is the first 2.5" to 3.5" hard drive or SSD converter with an overall sturdy, reliable construction with easy access to the drive perfect for system integrators and IT professionals.

The MB982SP-1S is based off the MB882 series design but utilizes a full metal design creating a better environment for cooling, as well as giving it a rock solid construction ideal for industrial, enterprise, and military applications.

The MB382SP-3B is a new design based off the MB982SP-1S but with added open air design with exceptional cooling.

Q: Will this converter allow me to fit my 2.5" SATA hard drive or SSD into a 3.5" bay?
A: The MB882SP-1S-1B is a 2.5" to 3.5" hard drive converter. It will fit any standard 2.5" SATA hard drive or SSD into any standard 3.5" hard drive bay.

Q: Will using this converter affect performance in any way?
A: This converter will not affect performance in any way because the device interface is essentially a bypass. It will be like the hard drive is directly connected to the motherboard.

Q: Does the MB882SP-1S-1B support Samsung 840 series SSDs?
A: Yes, this converter will support all 7-9.5mm 2.5" SATA hard drive or SSD

Q: Does the MB882SP-1S-1B support SATA III hard drive or SSD with SATA III interface?
A: The MB882SP-1S-1B support SATA I / II / III hard drive or SSD with a SATA I / II / III interface.

Q: Does MB882SP-1S-1B support the new SATA 3.3 Power Disable feature (PWDIS)?

A: The MB882SP-1S-1B does not support the SATA 3.3 PWDIS feature. If you install the SATA HDD/SSD with PWDIS in MB882SP-1S-1B, the drive will not spin, and the system won't detect the drive. See the list below for known SATA HDD/SSD with the PWDIS feature.


Known SATA HDD/SSD with Power Disable Feature (PWDIS)

WD Ultrastar DC HC510
HUH721010ALE600 HUH721010ALE604
HUH721010ALE601 HUH721010ALN600
HUH721010ALN604 HUH721010ALN601
Ultrastar DC HC510
HUH721008ALE600 HUH721008ALE604
HUH721008ALE601 HUH721008ALE600
HUH721008ALE604 HUH721008ALE601
Ultrastar DC HC520
HUH721212ALE600 HUH721212ALE604
HUH721212ALN600 HUH721212ALN604
Samsung PM883


Note: the SAS hard drive or SSD does not use the Pin 3 of SATA power connector for PWDIS feature and compatible with MB882SP-1S-1B.


While we recommend to avoid using the SATA HDD/SSD with PWDIS, you can use the methods below to disable the PWDIS feature physically if you already purchased the drive:


Method 1 – Using the Molex to SATA adapter or cable to disconnect the power to Pin 3 of the SATA power connector.


Molex to SATA Adapter   Molex to SATA Cable
Molex to SATA Adapter   Molex to SATA Cable


Method 2 – Placing Kapton tape on Pin 1-3 of the SATA power connector to isolate the 3.3V power, as shown below.

"Icy Dock has a great solution for those wanting to use 2.5” SSD, SAS or Hybrid hard drives in existing hardware that only supports 3.5” hard drives. Purchasing of these converters would be a cheaper solution than swapping out other hardware. With no loss of performance, there is no reason you have to replace your hardware just to take advantage of the latest 2.5” hard drives."

"No functional deficiencies, strong construction and a functional design at a reasonable price… It does what it is supposed to and is just that much better than a rail adapter"

"a small price to pay in order to securely locate that expensive new solid state drive in your older enclosure."

February 20, 2010

"The way the Icy Dock HDD Convertor works is rather slick, you set the drive on the rail, then you close the lid, closing the lid pushes the drive forward into the SATA connections on the PCB board inside and effectively locks it into place.The Icy Dock 2.5″ to 3.5″ Hard Drive Converter is a great little product that can be very useful, it’s well made and really it’s just a great little product. I can easily recommend this product as it’s simple and works great."

"the fact that all solid state disks are in the 2.5 inch format has created a problem for consumers who wants to have SSDs in their desktop systems. For the time being there are very few solutions like this so Icy Dock is in a good spot with this enclosure"

"This converter is in all regards a rather simple product, but thanks to its ease-of-use and very sturdy build-quality, it's well-worth a purchase if you want a more robust mount for your SSD. It sure beats the pants off simple metal brackets that are also being sold."
