I am running an AMD computer system which supports SATA and I would like to know if it supports eSATA.

If I purchase a SATA to eSATA bracket, am I able to use an eSATA external hard drive?  Will it be compatible?

If I am able to use it, is it plug and play or would I have to turn off the computer before connecting or disconnecting hard drive.

Thank you
