Hi persons,

I have an Asus G1S laptop and I recently installed Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit. As a result my eSata drives have stopped working. They still connect using USB, but after using eSata for so long, how can I go back, it's too slow!

The chipset in this guy is an Intel PM965. Does anybody know of a driver set that can get my eSata working! Intel doesn't have any on their site and I've downloaded a few others from various sites, but to no avail.

Your help is, in advance, greatly appreciated!

(I'd hate to have to go down to Vista 64 bit!)

Have you tried the Vista drivers for the Asus if they don't have Win7 ones for your model? If that does not work, your chances are very slim you'll find a solution.

Yeah, I just installed the Vista 64 bit drivers today, and still nothing from my hard drives.

when I turn on my E-SATA dock, I go to Start,Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Storage, Disk Management(local), after the next page loads, I click on More Actions on the right side and Rescan Disks, then my E-SATA dock and the drive show up
