eSATA external drive no longer visible under Vista
After a few Windows updates (*not* SP! which is *not* installed), I no longer
see the external HDD connected through eSATA port.

This is a dual-boot PC wher I have Vista 64bit and XP Pro (32bit). Must add
I have also updated the BIOS.

It is not a physical problem since I can see the drive when I boot to XP.
The problem lies only under Vista. I could see the drives from both OS
before those updates.

Thanks,
Rob
