I am not sure if this is not so much a problem as more of an enquiry ........ I recently purchased a Sata2 HDD and mounted it in a Vantec enclosure which gives me the option to use it with either USB2 or Sata 1.5gb interface .... the unit installed without a problem and because my MB supports Sata1 I am using this for data transfer ......... I am most impressed at speed of this. My query is My Computer doesn't see the External HDD unless I boot with the unit turned on ......... it will not see it if I boot and then turn the unit on .... is this normal with Sata interface?. If I use the USB interface I can boot and then turn the unit on and it is immediately recognized. Would welcome observations regarding this.
