I'm wondering if I can get some help getting my eSATA connection working.
I'm running Vista Ultimate 32 bit, a Asus P5B-E motherboard with intergrated eSATA and a seagate freeagent pro 500 GB with an eSATA cable.
I have 2 optical drives connected to the JMICRON controller and in the bios the JMICRON controller is set to RAID.
I've plugged it all up at the back and no luck, it won't work. Vista won't even recognise the drive
Drive works fine via USB 2 connection.
I just blogged on this topic. You might need to trim some of the boot around your eSATA cable and/or update the firmware on the drive. Read my blog posting for more details:http://blog.noegruts.com/2007/12/seagate-freeagent-pro-esata-problems.html
