Hey fellas. I don't know what's happening. I have set this up 4 billion times before. I have an external HD component, it's made not made for SATA, but I convert it.

I attach a Red cable that says "SATA - CW" and a power converter, from regular old HD to sata, the cable has the word "Comax on it". I'm going to try uploading some photos. Well anyways. I have the power hooked up, and my PC is not showing my External HD.

The cables aren't bad, they work fine on my lappy. The USB drives work on my PC, I checked them with 4 other things I use.

Hot swapping eSATA might not be supported by your motherboard. Try plugging the drive in and powering it up before you power on the computer.

Have you tried it on a diffirent computer?

Well Mr. all I can think of is your Plug and Play on your BIOS is that eneabled or disabled. Do it should be enabled
cause you said you plug 4 other things that worked...

I did quick research and found out that this link can help you out...
