Hi Foros,

Can you check your Integrated Peripherals menu in the Award BIOS? Check the settings for eSATA there.

Regards,

Hi Golden,

I have changed all IDE values to AHCI in the BIOS and the problem persists.



The drive is not shown although there was a day it was fully functional. With USB connection works perfectly.

I have made some inquiries and probably the problem has to be with ICH9 and SATA 3.0 speeds.

I will change enclosure to SATA 1.5 putting a jumper on disk and try what happens

Foros, what kind of device are you trying to hook up? You should start your own thread.

The FreeAgent pro Esata didn't work very well in my experience. I could only get 45 MB/s and a 22ms access out of it averages with the eSATA. Hardly worth it. All indications are it is limited by the eSATA on the drive end. The connector on the drive is not very good, some eSATA cables won't fit in all of the way. Check that your ESATA cable is inserted al of the way into the Freeagent.
