Hi All -
My Drobo-S shows up fine with USB, but not via the esata connection. I haven’t really found an answer to my problem by searching, so I’m hoping someone else has done something similar and can help.
The computer is a Dell Dimension C521 small form factor, AMD64, Win 2008 R2. There is no esata connector, so I’m using a sata to esata adapter (http://www.amazon.com/Startech-Accessory-Esataplt1lpl-Profile-Latching/dp/B004N4OAIM/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1302023883&sr=8-2). I don’t have any other eata devices to test with unfortunately, but the adapter is brand new and fairly simple. Both onboard sata ports are known good. It appears to have an NVIDIA chipset, but there is no option for configuring on-chip ATA in the BIOS (or anything remotely similar – all I can do is turn off or on the two internal sata ports).
Has anybody else tried this? Or know what is wrong, or have any other ideas?
Thanks for your help.
