Esata Drive Will Disappear After A While.?


I have an eSata dock that works fine. For context, I'm running a late 2013 Mac Pro (the cylindrical one) under OS X Yosemite 10.10.5. I love WD but I'm sick of this issue and no one fessing up to the issue. good luck LArry semschMay 31, 2009, 3:50 AM schreinereiner said: I'm having the same problem running Vista 64 Ultimate on a Shuttle Barebone with nforce 630 chipset and a Hitachi 1TB http://openfeedback.org/hard-drive/hard-drives-disappear.php

Dell's latest eport replicator only offers the eSata for high speed, and I use my LaCie for image backup. But the repair is free and they sent me back with no cost.And the eSATA works! So it might not be an OS X issue as a hardware power supply issue to the USB ports! Or windows bug?

Each time Carbon Copy Cloner runs, the target drive dismounts after five minutes. Using Vista HOme Premium SP2 in power options there is an advanced screen which has a menu similar to device manager. It originally looked like the disconnect of the HD was random but I guess it was always 20 min after the last access.

I changed the Removal Policy setting to "Quick Removal" (which in turn, disabled write caching). Internal Hard Drive Keeps Disconnecting Never hangs or falls offline. I guess I can't go back to WD drives because what good are they when they just disappear from the system in the middle of a larger ftp download? I had to shut off the power managment of the drive prior to defrag.

This is getting extremely frustrating.

Internal Hard Drive Keeps Disconnecting

So, time will tell if they really do continue without disconnecting again.Assuming the Quadra's are not reading my this post these, my problem may have evaporated with the upgrade to Win Although it will try to load data it eventually just gives up, finder freezes and I get the error message about disconnecting.

When I used the stock JMicron drivers from JMicron website I found the drive would always disconnect after a period of time even if I had made adjustments in the Windows I copied the files to my internal hard drive then tried to copy them to my external LaCie with the same results (worked for about 1 minute then disconnect).

It was bad enough but this problem is worse! Can't find your answer ?

cheers kolobok 2010-05-19 13:46:53 UTC #10 I can confirm that I have the same problem of drive going to sleep and disappearing from MyComputer after 10 minutes or so (with eSata).

Modified the High Performance plan's PCI Express Link State Power Management Setting to OFF.I think Step 3 was the critical one. You should notice increased write and read speeds...and your drive will no longer disconnect. It happens with my MacBook Pro so often that I can't use the Time Machine. BatavianMar 28, 2010, 2:50 AM I am having the exact same problem.

I would suggest trying a different eSATA cable if you have one. This is due to the fact some older 1.5Gbits/sec SATA cards do not support auto negotiation with newer 3.0Gbits/sec drives. I can't disconnect it at that point, and the finder basically freezes. toosloowFeb 17, 2010, 7:02 AM Same problem here with a HP M9450F...

Perhaps I should try using an older JMicron driver? Hope this snippet helps others. The HD stays connected until I try to transfer to or from it, disconnects, and then reconnects. Vista 64.
