External SATA 2.5 drive not recognized through the eSata port
Posted on 2011-02-17
My laptop: Lenovo T410, processor Intel Core i7 2.67 GHz, Windows 7 Professional 64 bit, 4GB RAM, 256 GB SSD drive, has eSATA port built in.
Problem: When connecting my external 500GB 2.5" SATA drive through the eSATA port - it is not being recognized. The external enclosure has both USB 2.0 and eSATA ports. When connecting via USB 2.0 everything works fine. How to get this eSATA connection working?
