I have tried to connect an external SSD Hard Drive through eSATA port, but Drive Xavier did not recognize it at all. There is no appropriate device appearing in /dev directory, fdisk -l does not list it. The cabe we use is purchased from Ugreen Group (https://www.ugreen.com/product/UGREEN_USB_Sata_Power_Esata_eSATAp_to_Sata_Cable_Dual_Power_USB_12V_5V_Combo_to_22_Pin-en.html). I tried all eSATA ports (eSATA0…3) none of them worked.
Is there any special way to bring up HDD drives through eSATA interface? I cannot find any documentation about eSATA at all.
Does eSATA work?
