Hi guys

Recently I got a Vantec USB 2.0/eSATA External 3.5 " Hard Drive Enclosure (comes with a SATA to eSATA Bracket). I installed a Western Digital 160GB SATA Hard Drive into this enclosure and it works fine with USB 2.0 connection. But the eSATA connection is not very fast. So I end up getting a PCI-Express to SATAII eSATA One Port Controller card from ebay. (Info of the card is at http://www.jmicron.com/JMB360.html)

I got the card yesterday & installed the card to my PCI-Express slot & load the driver from supplied CD. After re-boot my PC, the driver was confirmed installed properly. But when I connect my eSATA cable from my Vantec Hard Drive Enclosure to the eSATA port at the back of the controller card on my PC and then turn on my hard drive in my Enclosure. But the drive was not detected or recognized by my Windows XP system.

May I know do I need to connect a SATA cable from my card to my motherboard SATA port ?

Please kindly advise.
