Slow PCMCIA - eSATA problem?

I have no idea what's going on but my eSATA external drive is working a lot slower since I bought this laptop. I used to have the Express Card to eSATA adapter on my T60 but this Laptop doesn't have it so I am using PCMCIA to eSATA adapter and it is working extremely slow... does anyone have any solution for it?

Drive for laptop

If what you are talking about are external drives for laptops, then you have a lot of options. First off the option would be USB external drives, like say a flash drive it could be 4GB, 8GB, 16GB or 32GB. That's the easiest cheapest option. Another one is an external DVDRW drive or a BDRW drive as the media is cheap and you can buy a lot of it if needed. The other one is using drives that plugin through the PCMCIA or Cardbus. Finally, I can think of the internet, like an online drive like google drive. Have a great day, good luck.

Do external HDDs with both eSATA and USB require both to power up?

No, one or the other.

I wondered too, when my new eSATA external disk did not work with my laptop.

If you have a faulty eSata connector into your laptop the eSata won't work at all, but you can probably still use the USB until you can get a better quality eSATA expresscard / PCI connector. I think the standards have changed and an older eSATA expresscard won't do the job with modern laptop and disk.

Hi My ASUS Eeepc 1000HE is one week old..WHile typing in starts falling behind the keystrokes and just gets slower & slower to the point of sitting and waiting for up to a minute for it to...

this problem might slow down if you have too many program installed in your EeePC, i have my own EeePC then I noticed if i put too many programs too dizzy to use it, maybe you don't have put any partition on your hard drive, repartition it. And then put only necessary programs to use. And also use Tuneup Utilities to remove and repair some unnecessary files inside your system. Good luck!

ESATA Connection problem with My Book & my laptop w/ Vista

Had the same problem with a WD esata 1TB drive and an HP DV6 laptop. Using Vista home premium. Lots of experimentation BIOS settings and driver update, and finally fixed it by trimming back a couple of mm of the plastic shoulders on each connector of the esata cable. A few depth measurements and it became clear that the connectors weren't going in deep enough otherwise. The cable was a Belkin of reasonable quality.

No problems now, but the drive is only recognized if it's connected at boot-up.

The core of the problem is the external casing of both the laptop and the WD drive enclosure. They're thick and keep the cable connector from going in far enough. Perhaps manufacturers of the cables or the esata devices are sloppy, or the standard isn't specified well enough. I've seen pictures of esata cables that have significantly different dept.

External hard drive and ipod

It really doesnt matter, you will just have to have the hard drive plugged in when you sync you ipod or want to listen to music with your ipod. The only thing i have to say about it is if the external hard drive is if its connected to your computer with a USB rather than a firewire, then it might be slower to load than if you keep it on an internal hard drive. But it will work and wont be very slow, just slower.

External hard disk and pcmcia cardbus

There may not be enough power from the cardbus to run it. That bus is very low current to power it up so you will need the power cord.

Try reinstalled the card drivers.
