I just purchased a Cavalry 500gb external harddrive and received it today. I plugged in the esata to the back esata port on my P5k-e motherboard and it does not respond what so ever
Pulled from Microsoft's site, this explains it all.
"When you connect an external SATA (eSATA) device to a computer that is running Windows Vista with Service Pack 1 (SP1), Windows Vista does not discover the newly connected device. Therefore, the device does not work as expected."
Its under the hotfix KB 950186.... Yet its not available to download. What a joke Microsoft really is. The operating system they make is a mess, and then the few problems that can be fixed with a hotfix is not supported with download links. Great service Microsoft.
I could use any help. The usb works fine, but I got this harddrive for the sole purpose of transferring data via e-sata. If I wanted to use a USB External HDD. I would have gotten one, half as expensive
Thanks in advance
P.S Using Windows Vista 64 Ultimate.
