You know the phrase, "I doesn't get any better than this". Well I here because of good O'le Plug and pray. The more gear we get the more praying we've yet to do.
Good to be here I look forward to the interface.

Since the dawn of time, BW, before windows, we've be hashing out problems and here's one that is baffling two of the guys here, a much newer geek, and me the Grumpy O'le Geek.

If you can point me in the right place the Big Giant Head will visit on you paradise.....here's the problem (I'll be back on line Monday A.M.). Thanks for any help you may spot me.

Ted C.

Problem:
With all components hooked up the systems asks me to insert a disk which is connected.

New configuration:
I have a Toshiba A75 laptop and wanted a back up SATA hard drive system.
I purchased:
A Deckstar series T7K500, mod # HDT72532VLA360
I installed it in a: Sabrent SATA-EC-ESU4S Serial ATA (SATA) & SATA II 3.5 Hard Disk to eSata and USB 2.0 Aluminum Enclosure Case
Using provided cables connecting to a:
Sabrent, SATA-EXC2, eSATA II -3Gbps Dual Ports Express Card / 34 PCMCIA card

Problem:
With all components hooked up the systems asks me to insert a disk which is connected.

The system acknowledges the PCMCIA card and the system offers a external device (E:) yet when in Windows Explorer the system asks to have a disk inserted even though the hard drive is connected and indicator lights (one indicates HDD access) indicate power is on and the PCMCIA card senses the cable. The software as provided (weak information) seems to be installed correctly.

Fix instructions for Hitachi indicate a repair/setup for a desktop not instructions for working through a PCMCIA inserted card with an external HDD.

Question: What has to be done to initiate the hard drive (with partitions) so that the system will recognize it? Or, is Deskstar just DarkStar?
