I'm hoping I'm posting in the right section, but I'm a bit confused about eSata. I recently got a 1tg Samsung hd and I've set it up in a Rosewill RX358 external enclosure. The enclosure allows me to use both USB 2.0 and an eSata cable. Using the eSata would allow faster read/write speeds right? So I'm trying to use the hd with only the eSata cable, but whenever I try to turn it on, nothing happens with my OS (Win XP). But if I plug in the usb cable, it recognizes the drive. If I leave the drive on with the eSata plugged in and restart my comp, then the drive is recognized with only the eSata but once I turn it off, I can't turn it on and have the drive be recognized again. I don't get why that is and is there any way to get the drive to be recognized with only a eSata cable and not need a restart every time?
