Need recommendation for eSATA controller and eSATA cable


OSNN Newbie

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.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
