Seagate 1tb drive not detected, works via esata? Tags: Hard Drives SATA Seagate Western Digital Storage Last response: August 27, 2009 1:25 AM in Storage Share v3c7r0n August 27, 2009 1:06:33 AM Hi all, I have 3 1tb seagate drives and 3 WD black 1tb drives. I purchased 2 Silicon Image 4 port sata controllers, and am getting everything hooked up in a new machine. Problem is, one of my 1tb drives is not seen by the onboard sata controller, or either Silicon Image sata controllers, but if I hook it up to my desktop via esata, it spins up and runs like a champ? - I've tried different ports on both controllers and other drives are detected properly - I have tried two different sata cables with the onboard and both SI controllers, no go anywhere - I have checked the power cabling, and as far as I can tell, the drive is spinning up in the case (I have to remove it to connect via esata) - The SI controllers detect the other 2 match drives without issue, and I have tried all the seagates on one and all the wd's on the other, and mixed them, no combination works. Anyone have any ideas?
