Question about an SSD drive and docking station...

I have an older model USB 3.0 docking station. Could be 8 or 10 years old. It works fine when using a WD mechanical HD. But when I insert a Samsung 860 EVO SSD, the drive is not recognized by the pc. Acts as if the docking station is not connected.

I visited the docking station mfg site and downloaded the latest driver. But it didn't help. So, can any docking station work with a SSD? Or am I missing something?

BTW, I bought this SSD to replace a mechanical HD in my laptop. Samsung has Data Migration s.w. that I believe is installed on the new SSD (not really sure about that, the instructions are very vague). That's why I'm using the SSD and dock.
