Hello & Welcome to Tom's Hardware!

What OS are you running on your desktop computer, and when you used the eSATA conection, did you use that on a different computer, or one running Win XP, or an Apple?

Also with the ext drive connected, go to Disk Management, and upload a screenshot (imageshack or photobucket) with your post back, so we can see exactly now Windows recognizes this WD 2TB external drive.
