I'm using macOS Ventura Version 13.0.1. I've connected the drive to the iMac via Apple's Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 adapter. The drive lights up, spins, but then shuts down.
I have previously tried updating the driver SR3.4.16 (6.2.17-3 (Out-Box for M1 Mac)) but no luck. I did follow the instructions correctly about enabling kernel extensions. Is this the correct driver? I tried downloading the firmware update from https://www.promise.com/us/Support/DownloadCenter but it keeps saying the file is corrupt. Is the firmware update necessary?
I came across another post somewhere indicating that the iMac cannot power various peripherals and a docking station would be required. If that's true, could someone tell me how much power the Pegasus2 R8 requires to run? I couldn't find it in the specs. I don't want to buy a powered docking station without guaranteeing it will work with the drive.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
