Question about ASUS P5QC Motherboard - Intel P45, Socket 775, ATX, DDR3/DDR2, Audio, PCI Express 2.0, Gigabit LAN,
Using Asus P5Q PRO motherboard. Internal sata drives detected but not external sata hard disk using using esata cable connection.
I would start by swopping the Internal Sata Cables around and check if that solved it.
If not then there's probably a problem with either the E Sata HDD Controller board or Even the HDD or the Sata cable going from the Motherboard to your input E Sata Port.It's a matter of elimination.
So Remove the HDD from the Enclosure and plug it directly into the Motherboard and see if thats picked up.If it is then the HDD is fine.If not, get it replaced and it might still be under warranty.Check with the manufacturer.Continue reading if the HDD is fine.
Then use the Sata Cable from another HDD and connect it straight to to the E Sata Enclosure and see if the Operating System picks it up,Make sure the HDD you removed is plugged back into the enclosure.If that doesn't work then the problem lies with the Enclosure itself and you should get it replaced.
If it does the the problem lies with the cable itself and you should replce that.
Hope this helps you out.
