Are you saying that you want to turn one SATAII to eSATA?

Default Re: eSATA

I have one of them hooked up, the only problem is that it will only be found on boot, not as a removable disk.

EDIT:: I sorta got it working. every time i plug it in i have to go and tell it to check for new hardware. Does anyone have a better way of doing this? maybe a little more automated?
