When i connect the esata site on my laptop everything works fine i tried it on 3 different desktop computer with no luck.

Likely the desktop systems are not providing any power through the eSATA port.  You will need to plug the USB cable in as well provide power for the drive.
I concur with kode99, I have faced a similar problem before and plugging in an external power adapter to the drive helped resolve the issue for me with desktops.

from the specs :  eSATA interface (plug directly into any compatible motherboard or laptop with powered eSATA port)  so probably those pc's do not have a powered eSata port  (as kode 99 said)

The esata interface is connected on the motherboard. Is it possible the interface to be non powered esata ports?
that is what is most probable :  http://www.dvhardware.net/article35303.html
What if i use a power adapter for the mini usb? instead of a usb cable? will that help and give me the maximum out of it?
