eSATA / Vantec NexStar 360SU Connection Issue
I have a ASRock K10N780SLIX3-WiFi Mobo, AMD Phenom II CPU, Kingston Hyper X 8gb Mem, OCZ Tech 550W PSU, 2x BFG nVidia 7600 GT VGA's (SLI Mode enabled), 2 Maxtor 200gb IDE HDD's, 1 Maxtor 60gb IDE HDD, Asus DVD-RW, Asus DVD-ROM, Floppy Driver, Atech Card Reader in a Aspire Super X-Alien Full Tower & running Windows Vista Ultimate 64bit OS.
I have a Western Digital SATA WD5000AAVS HDD, which was in a Western Digital My Book. I then purchased the Vantec NexStar 3.5" SATA enclosure. I have tried to use the driver that came with the Vantec enclosure, but did not work. I updated all the drivers, and troubleshooted on microsoft.com. I'm am able for the device manager to see the drive connected to the mobo, but if I try and format and I have issues. The system freezes, or slows down to a crawl. It never finishes formatting. I am at a loss right now on what I can do.
Can anyone help me out?
