E-Sata not recognized - ThinkPad T410 Tags: Thinkpad Desktops Windows XP Storage Last response: July 19, 2010 12:49 PM in Storage Share darius26 July 19, 2010 2:53:35 AM Hi All, I have this 1TB eSata External drive/enclosure I formated in an XP Desktop. I used the drive attached to a O!Play to watch my movies from. Things were working fine. I then decided to rearrange my files. I had my company laptop, a Lemove ThinkPad T410 with eSata port nearby so I figured I'd use that instead turning on the desktop. I plug the eSata external back to O!play and it wasn't detected. I plugged it back to my desktop and it says the drive wasn't formatted. Everything is fine if I connect to the ThinkPad T410!! So I copied all the files to the T410 and reformatted the drive and it wasn't recognized by O!Play nor the XP Desktop. So I formatted it back with my desktop and now T410 says it's not formatted.. Seems the T410 port or something is wonky! Is it the driver? Your help is appreciated.
