question

If I have this connected to my iMac via USB 3, can I still daisy chain another external drive via FireWire?
Asked by: Shaun
Sorry, no, you cannot daisy chain a FW device if connected to the computer via USB 3.0

question

What warranty does this unit come with? And has anyone had to call the manufacturer for tech support and if so were they competent, helpful? How long where you on hold? Thanks
Asked by: Anonymous
This has a 1 year warranty from the manufacturer. They do have technical support available Monday through Saturday by phone, and more limited support 24/7 via chat. Hold times are generally very short.

question

Can you daisy chain more then 2 units? Do you have to daisy chain via FireWire 800?
Asked by: Anonymous
You should be able to, but I do not recommend it. Too great of a chance for transfer issues as you add devices. You can only daisy chain this via Firewire.

question

Will this work with the Atomos HDD or SSD drives while still in the caddy?
Asked by: glenn m.
It really depends on the design of the caddy. If it mimics a 3.5 inch drive, then it will work, but the fit will likely be sloppy.

question

Does anyone encounter any issues with these Voyager docks in OS X El Capitan? have two, and both no longer work under 10.11.0 or 10.11.1( Beta 3)
Asked by: James
I have the same issue (using USB 3.0). My workaround is to use FW800 with a Thunderbolt adapter... slower but at least it's functional.

question

Can you successfully daisy chain two or more Voyager Q Quad Interface Docks via firewire, connected to a MacBook Pro running OS 10.5.8?
Asked by: Sandra S.
Not sure but if a Firewire interface can daisychain, I don't see why it wouldn't work.

question

There is conflicting information on the Voyager Q Quad Interface Dock, indicating both 4 GB limit and 6 GB limit. Which is correct? Or is there a later version with larger capacity?
Asked by: Bill M.
Hi, the Voyager Q can hold up to 6Tb without problems - check manufacturer website (Newertech). Very happy with my product. B&H Customer service is great so should you buy a 6Tb HD and won't work for any reason, I'm pretty sure they will refund. Make sure you keep the original box and everything in mint condition though.
