External HDD to eSata Port Tags: SATA Connection External Hard Drive Storage Last response: July 13, 2010 9:12 PM in Storage Share Anonymous a b G Storage July 13, 2010 8:57:34 PM Hi there, I am looking to expand my storage capacity. My question is: Can I connect an External SATA HDD Caddy to the eSata port on my motherboard? Or does it have to connect to an eSata Port on a Sata Controller card that can handle port multiplication? Many thanks in advance.

As long as you have a sata external connection on the caddy, as opposed to a caddy with a sata drive but with usb connection. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
