Is it possible to run eSATA on an 18 month old motherboard that supports SATA

Hi

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

What type of motherboard do you have?
It will depend on the controller on the mobo but unless it is a pretty high end one I would guess not. If you know what type it is I can find out for you...

eSATA is just a different cable, so Any SATA  controller supports eSATA automatically.

I hope this helps !
