I have a Latitude E6510 with an eSata port on the side. I bought a cable from the local computer store from a company which has both SATA and power cables in it (part: Manhattan MH Dual Pwr ESATA Cbl 7P-22P Blk 1.5ft / 0.5m).
Unfortunately, when I plug in a SATA drive to the dual cable, nothing happens. No device is recognized by Win7 nor does the drive spin up.
Does anyone know if there's a trick to getting this to work? Does this port supply 5v / 12v to the eSATA device?
I've been to Dell's support site and downloaded what I think are all the latest drivers.
