    Windows startup issue with new HHD Docking Station

    Added a new external Eaxer Dual Bay Docking Station (also has built in USB 3 hub). The directions/instructions that came with it are pretty short and pretty basic. My issue is if I restart (or startup from system power off) while the docking station is powered on...the 2 HDD's do not show up in 'This PC', 'Device Manager'...etc

    If I power off the DS...restart (or power on) Windows...then switch the DS power back on...presto...the drives are in This C, disk management, etc ?

    Is this normal behavior for docking stations...and why would the Docking station need to be powered on after the PC is started in order for the drives to be recognized. ??

    I don't know if it's normal behavior or otherwise, but I had something similar happen to me on a docking station I bought from Newegg last year: a Dyconn Dubbler Dock. I had a variety of interesting problems with it, mostly because it requires loading a driver at startup before you can use it. That might be what's going on with your device as well. Sorry for your trouble: been there, done that.
