When you first purchase and install a new hard that is attached to the ADS3GX4R5-MLMhost adapter, you will need to format the hard drive using the erase tab in Disk Utility. Disk Utility can be found in the Mac OS X “Utility” folder. Once you have erased the new hard drive it will mount on the desktop and be ready for use. You can also create RAIDs using Disk Utility with the hard drives mounted in your SATA enclosure.
