    Ok so I went out and purchased a wonderful onyx black Vantec NexStar 3 external Hard Disk case for my 320GB Western Digital SATA Hard disk, plugged the eSATA connector in booted into Vista and turned on the Hard Disk -- nothing. :mad: What the *hey* :confused:

    So after replacing the eSATA connector and scratching my head lots, I gave up and connected the Vantec through USB2 -- guess what ...

    It worked perfectly!

    But how is it that a new technology such as eSATA coupled with a brand new Intel DP35DPM board and Windows Vista = no eSATA joy? :(

    There's something for SP1 Redmond boys.
