Docking station detection problem

Hi
I have bought Gold Touch HDDS-U3 docking station, I plugged both usb cables to the computer (one to SSUsb port and one to regular port), waiting for 30 minutes while it was turn off (for battery charging). After that I insert a 3.5' HDD and turn it on. Nothing happen. there is no red or green light and the device doesn't appear in Disks Management.

How can I make it work??

* I have windows 10

Yoav.

UPDATE: now I can see a new disk in Disk Management, but it say "no media". I tried to change the letter but it didn't help.

ok, but in the product page they say it can..
that's weird, because in device properties it seems all fine.
another thing, it says that it's a ASMT 2115 USB Device. may this relate to the problem?..

Still would be a first.

The accepted power for a 3.5 drive when you plan a PC is 20 Watts. Even 2 USB ports gives you 5 Watts.

A little short.

I wonder how this device can do it while...

no other company can. And what is this about waited 30 for charge?

Your experience so far tells me they can't do this.

If I need a 3.5 inch adapter I use a powered model.
