The Master Caddy Docking Station allows you to connect your media to your computer. For information on using the Master Caddy Docking Station and the different models available, refer to the ATOMOS Powered Docking Station models: section.
Attaching Media to a Master Caddy Docking Station:
Eject the media from your SHOGUN CONNECT.
Align your AtomX SSDmini, Master Caddy II or AtomX CFast adapter so that the SATA III connector lines up with the SATA II connector on the Docking Station. Media can’t be inserted the wrong way round.
Gently slide your media all the way into the Docking Station until it stops at the end of the drive slot. Ensure that the media is properly attached.
Never force the media into the docking station, just in case something isn’t set up or aligned properly
The SHOGUN CONNECT disk slot does NOT have a release latch for media. It is a friction-fit system. To remove simply pull the media out using the top and bottom tabs on the media itself.
Connecting the Master Caddy Docking Station to your computer:
Connect the Master Caddy Docking Station to a Mac® or Windows® editing workstation via USB 2.0, USB 3.0 or USB-C 3.1.
After a short wait, your disk will be recognized by your operating system and the recorded video will be accessible by the target computer via a standard disk (exFAT) file system.
Once your disk is recognized by your operating system, you can edit directly from the drive or copy the files to your own storage.
To copy files to your computer or other storage location:
Open the disk in My Computer > Select all the files or just the ones you wish to transfer, copy and paste them to your desired location. (ctrl+c copy, ctrl+v paste).
Your SHOGUN CONNECT disk will show in Finder. Select the files you wish to transfer, drag the files to your desired location or use the copy and paste commands. (COMMAND + C to copy, COMMAND + V to paste).
The SHOGUN CONNECT formats your media as exFAT. We have chosen this file system to overcome the 4GB file limitation of FAT32 and allow for compatibility on both Windows and MAC OS.
The Operating Systems that support exFAT are:
Snow Leopard 10.6.5 or higher
Mountain Lion 10.8
Mavericks 10.9 and above
