Topic Title: Using RAID and eSata on the same system Topic Summary: On the SB750, how to use the eSata port on a system that is also set up to use RAID Created On: 11/22/2009 07:04 PM Status:
With the exact same cable, exact same drive, and exact same computer, it worked fine when I had Vista on there and had the SATA BIOS setting at "IDE." In my upgrade to Windows 7 I also changed the SATA config to "RAID" so that I can take advantage of that feature.
(BTW it's not an eSata adaptor. It's the eSata that's on the motherboard).
In your case, the "adaptor" would be the one in the external enclosure. If it does not provide voltage on the fifth lead, that could be the problem.
If you boght the external drive as an assembled unit, then opening it would probably void the warrantee. Maybe you could take up the issue of Windows 7 compatibility with the manufacturer of your external drive.
I am afraid I cannot help you any further.
