Hi,

I have a ASRock ALiveDual-eSATA2 motherboard and I want to connect an external harddisk. Therefore I bought a
- 1TB Samsung SpinPoint F3 HD103SJ (it is a eSATA 1 drive) and a
- Icy Box IB-319StUS2-B with eSASTA connector.

The harddisk shows up when I start the BIOS and I was able to format and work with it when connected via USB.
My problem is: When I connect it via eSATA cable, it shows up in BIOS but not under Windows XP (SP3).
I installed the latest
JMicron SATA2 driver ver:R1.17.23 already and I also connected the cable on the motherboard from SATAII_2 to the external eSATAII Port.
Also connecting the external drive directly with the SATAII_2 port right on the motherboard doesn´t make a change.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Rudi
