I have bought an western digital 1tb my book home edition external drive and a Trust IF-3600 eSATA II PCIe card an eSATA CABLE. tHE DRIVE works in USB but not in ESATA, it is not recognised. A 320 gb MEDION external hard drive works ok on eSATA. Why won`t the WD drive work in eSATA.
thanks in advance. springbob
