I bought a WD Caviar Black WD1002FAEX and put it into a Rosewill RX-358 V2 enclosure and connected it to my computer via eSATA. It seems to cause freeze ups and be occasionally unresponsive... almost like not waking up properly?
Anyway, I connected it using the USB 2.0 and it is indeed slower, but at least it behaves more responsive. So, I would like to connect it via eSATA once again to get the speed benefit.
But I am not sure what caused the problems in the first place... the eSTATA cable or the drive or the enclosure or the computer. Any ideas?
