eSata connection

I have got a new computer with an e-Sata socket as well as the normal USB sockets.

However, I cannot find what it is used for because none of my connections to my back-up external drives will connect.

Could you please give me a full explanation of its use and suggest the equipment to buy. I thought it could be used for an external drive as a backup like a normal second drive in a tower computer!

Help!

I would not worry to much about it, e-Sata never really took off.

Thanks! I thought I was missing something! I can now sleep easily.

I use an e-sata connection for my external blu-ray writer. It's supposed to give a better data rate.
