So it kinda seems like this thing is a combo port of some kind, but at the same time I’m not so sure. Bookmarks Bookmarks Digg del.

[ubuntu] eSata port in Dell Latitude E not working in Ubuntu Desktop
So just decided to format the thing, I had been wanting to try VLite anyway, so that was a good excuse. It was able to recognize all drives connected in the external drive bay.
eSATA / USB combo port on Dell laptop … huh?
My E came with the matrix storage loaded and running. I’m helping a friend get an external for his laptop and he has an e-sata usb combo port on it that we intend to use.

The problem might also laritude the electronics in the external drive bay, that it is not recognized by any driver in the new versions of Ubuntu. I used to connect an external drive bay to such a port.
Your name or email address: Maybe someone else, who esqta this thread, has a Dell and knows if there are compatibility problems with the eSATA port. Sucks, because this means everytime want to remove the drive, have to shut down system first. Have you checked if you can connect via eSATA when you run an older linux operating system?
