Daisy Cutter shows low power indication (red LED), what do I do?!

The Daisy Cutter USB 2.0 can be used with bus power only. If the Host doesn't provide enough power, the RED LED will light up and as result, the drive will not spin up. At this point a power adapter is required.

If the RED LED is still on even when the power adapter is used, please check your adapter or power source. As long as the adapter is connected, the bus power will be turned off. If you want to use bus power, disconnect the power adapter.
