eSATA 2 SATA 3.0 to PCI-E PCI Express Card ASM 1061

hi Guys

I have a really stupid question. been looking all over for the last few weeks. The Chinese seller is not helping.

I want to use this card with the 2 eSata connections.

I do not understand jumpers. Can anyone show me a photo of what to do with the jumpers to make the eSata ports/connections work.

I thought the default was eSata but it did not work. I showed the card to the local PC shop and they did not know...

this is what I bought

I don't think you need to set any jumpers. Is the external HDD in an enclosure? Are you powering the external HDD?

Did you connect HDD when the PC was running or shut down? Try restarting while it is plugged in. You may need a driver for hot plug to work, or to actively search for hardware changes in Device Manager.

Hi
Thank you.

There is an external HDD enclosure that has its own power pack. I want to boot the OS from the external (as it does now), but with the card (as I understand) it will be better and faster than the dodggy cord.

I tried to find it in the Bios. So if the jumpers are for the eSata I must have done something wrong?? I have a disc...

Will try and get back tomorrow - I am on the other side of the world and it is night...
Thanks
Dan

Well, do you see the HDD in BIOS? Set the HDD boot order to make external first in order. Possibly you may need drivers for the card. If so, try loading Windows normally and install the drivers from CD, then try again connected to E-SATA.

Thank Mate

When I first put in the card it loaded the drivers automatically. Then I loaded them in from the card (just in case). I went to the BIOS and I could not see ANY PCI cards only 1 boot device (I think it was the DVD) and this was not the card?????

So the PC did not boot. So I re-connected the external HDD normally to the PCI slot on the MB and it worked.

Why is it always so hard??? Still not sure if the jumpers are in the correct alignment...but since the PC cannot see the card this is not the current issue (although it may become so)

regards
Dan

Hi Mate

When I removed the corded HDD only one boot option. Now the PC is back there is 2 boot options. The PC is not recognising the card. I looked at Manager and could not see it???

Boot option 2 is my external HDD connected with a cord....

Sir
Thank you.....

Here are your photo plus a couple more....

I tried the card in a few more slots - nothing.

I deleted all the ATA contoller then re-started and they were identified. Is this of any use?

There is supposed to be a list of your drives somewhere, don't you have other hard drives (or just 1 eSATA)?
I am inclined to think that e-SATA 2 listed is your card.

Try going into "Hard Drive BBS Priorities", and see what's inside.
