ESATA external hard drive not recognized on laptop
i got an external enclosure for my old SATA hard drives both 250GBs (WD2500KS Caviar) and tried to hook it up via eSATA cable on my Thinkpad T510. For some reason its not recognizing the drive at all but when i use my USB, it works just fine and recognized it immediately as an external harddrive. if anyone can help with this conundrum that would be great.

was the power cable plugged in?
yup, the power cable was on. when i plug it in via USB it works perfectly. i just don't know why it won't read via esata cable.
