|The docking station is USB 3.0 |
Although I'm fairly certain a Windos 8 PC would have USB 3.0 as standard it will pay to double check for that functionality.
Edit: Usually the USB 3.0 ports can be identified by their blue colour. Any USB 2.0 ports are black.
What is the make and model number of your PC?
Also can you describe what you do with the docking station. Have you tried pluggin it in, loading it with a SATA HDD then turning the PC on afterwards? Or do you plug it in and then place a HDD into the cradle while the PC is already running?
