Problem adding additional hard drives via eSATA

Recommended Posts

Hey All,

 

So here is the situation, I am trying to add additional hard drives on an eSATA interface. I currently am using a Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 motherboard, I just added a Startech.com 5 bay hard drive enclosure. I currently have 4 hard drives loaded. The bios is set for AHCI and the bios does recognize the drives during boot. The issue that I am running into is that I can see all 4 drives with the USB 3.0 connection however when connected via eSATA I can only see 1 drive. The eSATA connection is using a eSATA to SATA adapter plate and is plugged directly into the motherboard. Also when I plug in my WD 4TB My Book (to use a local backup destination) DSM does not see that drive. Has anyone ran into this issue or have a solution. Thanks!

 

I have edited the synoinfo.config file in both the /etc and /etc.defaults directories with the following settings.

 

maxdisks="24"

esataportcfg="0x0"

internalportcfg="0xffffff"

usbportcfg="0x0"
