P6T eSata problems, please help!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a P6T with an eSATA port and running a RAID 0 aswell with 2 500GB Hard Disk Drives. to make a long story short, i have my mobo settings on RAID and my Jmicron controllers settings set to AHCI. But my eSATA port doesn't recognize the external drive. If i plug the hdd into the mobo sata port directly it recognizes it and the external works over usb. I also have a HAF X case and the front esata port works fine becuase it plugs directly into the mobo sata port. To summarize, my eSATA port on the back I/O doesn't recognize it, doesn't anyone have an suggestions? thanks in advance.

Does your drive require eSataP? On my P8P67 Pro board there are a few eSata connections on the back that do not provide power. Unpowered eSata ports will not work with devices that require power. I.E. My Sans Digital tower does not work with the motherboards eSata ports but works with the eSataP ports.

eSATAp is also known as Power over eSATA or eSATA/USB Combo. eSATAp port combines the strength of both eSATA (high speed) and USB (compatibility) into a single port. eSATAp devices are now capable of being self powered. On a desktop workstation, eSATAp port can supply 12 V to power up a 3.5" hard disk drive (HDD) or a 5.25" DVD-RW without needing separate power source as compared to eSATA and USB 2.0. On a notebook eSATAp port can supply 5 V to power up a 2.5" HDD/SSD as compared to eSATA. Many notebooks are now equipped with this combo port.

eSATAp can be implemented in all machines with a spare SATA port. These machines include PC notebooks, desktops, Apple Mac Pro, and Linux or Unix servers. This makes eSATAp an easy, economical, cross platform solution for external storage.

Thanks for the guess but no, the power is via a seperate connector. And the Hard Disk Drive is recognized by the JMicron controller on boot up just not once i get into an Operating System.
