    You may have to use it USB mode only, some external devices when using eSATA have their own controller and that messes things up with two being used.

    When you do connect it to eSATA have you tried ports 2-3 and (5 and 6 actual on the far side of the board)4-5 as well?

    I don't understant what do you mean.
    My motherboard have 5 internal Sata and 1 external eSata ports.
    Name of connectors:
    Sata 0-4 - internal - on the board
    Sata 5 - external eSata
    Normal I use Sata 0 - HDD and Sata 4 - DVD. If I connect eSata, HDD and DVD work normal.
    Tomorrow a will take the box to the shop and they try it in their computers.

    Ok, then you already have things connected to the ports I meant, however you should use this for your BIOS setting then >>>

    Sata4/5..... IDE

    Then your DVD player and your ESATA should work normally

    My problem is finish.
    Yesterday I was in the shop,where I buy the box and the service guy connect this box with other cable to his PC - eSata->Sata, he haven't eSata in PC. The box correctly works. The guy give me some another cable and reductions.
    At the home I find the problem. The cable Box-PC is wrong-no in connection,but the connectors on the ends of cable are short ! - I compare the other cable what use the guy from shop.
    I take to parts my box and PC - without I/O shield .... - the box works corretly !!
    I lost four days of my life, because the calble(twoo cables) from China is(are) s..t

    thank you Lsdmeasap :)

    So you fixed it then? Hope so, did he give you a working cable or are you using it without the I/O shield now?

    First step is find the problem ;-) Second fix the problem.
    Today I give back the bad cable and exchange to new.
    Without the I/O is only for test.
