    I recently bought a Seagate Freeagent pro 500GB external drive. So far I have tried with SATA to ESATA brackets and 2 differenet brand eSATA cables, but for some reason my Vista won't recognize the drive. I have done all the basic stuff like loading new bios, loading drivers, enable RAID in bios , enable SATA ports in bios etc. Can someone recommend a good eSATA controller and eSATA to eSATA cable that will surely work with this drive?

    I tried the drive on 2 different machine - one with builtin eSATA port and other with sata to eSATA bracket. Same issue.
