Hello,does the aspire x3810 Motherboard support a port multiplier external sata drive. I bought a probox smart family externat that contains 4 hard drives but my sata port doesn't see the drives but when I connect it to the usb port I can see all the drives. I've been looking for an upgrade to the processor to see if that will help, If anyone knows if this machine supports a port multiplier pls advise me how to chenge the settings or whatever I have to do.
Thanks in advance for any info

Upgrading the processor will have no bearing on your issue.

Which specific x3810 do you have? There are several variants (need your complete model number), but from my initial look at a few versions, it doesn't look like your eSATA will support multiple drives (no port multiplier).

The Acer model number is somewhere on the case itself. Regardless, looks like your system doesn't support the function.

Thais the model number of the Intel processor your system has in it. Is there an Acer label on the back of the system? If so, it may have the specific Acer model number. Regardless, from what I could determine, your system does not support the function you desire.
