Won't work on Western Digital external drives Aug 14, 2007
By DRen72 I bought this hoping it would allow me to use my Western Digital My Book SE on my Asus A8N-SLI, but it does not work. The Western Digital requires a true eSATA connection from the motherboard. What this does is convert SATA to eSATA and that won't cut it for the WD drive.

A great idea! Feb 11, 2008

A few months ago I had no idea what ESATA was. Then I bought an external drive case that had both USB2 and ESATA. It came with a single Motherboard SATA connector-to-ESATA socket. When I bought another like unit, I wanted to have 2 ESATA connectors on one bracket. That's what this does nicely.

Great for adding esata to PC Aug 21, 2009
By J. Reviewer
Great product for taking unused internal sata ports inside PC and allowing use of external esata drives. Esata is way faster than USB. You can also boot from an esata drive using this device. I have 2 estata drives connected to multi-boot my system (vista 64 & windows7 - I turn off the unused drive to save power). Make sure you measure the length of the cable needed from your mother board to the back of PC. 6" cable may be too short. Other models like this come with longer cables. Mine was 18" so it could reach the back of the case. Highly recommended for external esata drive use.

By JD Fagan Besides that it doesn't work with external WD drives, but cables are too short for my tower case.
