I am just beyond frustrated with esata now! Wouldn't work on my last board (Asus P5K-Deluxe) and now it won't work with my latest build on the X58 Pro.

I tried to connect my Thermaltake BlacX external storage device via esata today and nothing happened when it was connected. I tried two different cables, one brand new one and one that has the corners 'shaved'.

I got ticked off tonight and bought a Lacie D2 Quadra 1TB external drive with esata. No go for this as well. Both the Thermaltake and Lacie work via USB2 no problem but USB2 just isn't fast enough.

I have made sure the Extra RAID/IDE Controller was Enabled in the BIOS (which it was)...

Aanyone have any suggestions?  :mad:

Install all of JMicron drivers and it should work.

Hi neilvan. Which OS are you using?

Vista Home Premium 64-bit.

OK - I feel like a complete tool. I left it last night and shut down the computer. Booted up this morning and there it is.  :bonk:

Is that all it took...a reboot? I swear I am getting too old for this.  :rolleyes:

Sometimes it is that easy. That's why I asked about the OS you had. Some component recognition issues tend to arise from time to time with different versions. Drivers are another fun element in the mix as well. If it stops showing again, looks like a 'reboot' will fix it. As an afterthought, it may have something to do with the 'connect' sequence. Now & then if I forget (can relate to age), & leave a portable device connected after shutdown, at bootup, the boot sequence is all messed up. Anyway, glad it is working now.
