hi, I connected a dvd drive to my laptop using,
a sata to esata cable. my laptop has a ESATA port.
I don't know if you should post some kind of config summary (if yes let me know, I will do it promptly)
basically I have a HP DV6t quad edition
with an Intel 5 serie chipset,
PM55 express chipset (dont really know if it make any sense but still, I will just say state it)
so I installed Intel Matrix Storage and when I connect the drive I can see it, but windows 7 does not see it, it's like I didn't plug anything in.
ok so I tried that already, and it does not show up.
Im getting hopeless.
I installed windows xp on one of my partitions thinking windows 7 was the issue, but NO, it aint...
what would be the barrier between the motherboard and the software, I don't get it.
since Intel Matrix Storage sees it, that means the motherboard sees it too right?
