My new motherboard has a power over eSATA port, i plugged it into my 2.5" enclosure via eSATA and nothing turns on. Do I need a special cable, or motherboard drivers?

1) Does it work if the device is plugged in at boot up?

2) Do you have you SATA controllers set to AHCI, which is needed for hot swap ability of the eSATA?

3) Does your enclosure have a power source requirement?
