My 10tb HDD's wont work with computer...is there a limit in tb?

Recommended Posts

I got some 10tb Iron Wolf internal HDD's but they wont run with my computer with an external setup. For some reason they don't show up when plugged in. I get a beep, the HD's whirl, but never show up on the screen. 
I tried 2 different hookups for external HDDs. I wonder if there is a limit in tb drive size the computer will run.
I have some HP slims desktop computers with Win 10 with 8RAM and 1 TB HDD. I also tried the Iron Wolf 10tb drives on a HP laptop with 16 RAM and no go. Drives do not show up. Tried 2 10tb drives and 2 different hookups. The hookups both work with a 2tb Barracuda drive and works with a DVD drive, but not the 10's. Any ideas?

After reading the docking station's specs I now see it only supports up to 6tb. But does not explain why the cord does not work. There must be some limit in tb that you can use externally.
