eSATA drive ? (also posted on V. gen.)
I have an eSATA drive formatted NTFS from my XP installation.

Drive works fine from either XP or Linux (multi-boot machine)

I had previously tried Vista on the machine but it saw the eSATA drive
as unformatted. Gave the message "Do you want to format this drive?"

Very dangerous as an unknowing person may have actually formatted the
drive and lost all their data.

Interestingly enough, any time I've tried to access the drive,
Vista ran a chkdsk on it at the next boot up.

CHKDSK from Vista saw it fine and reported no errors

but could not read the drive once booted to the desktop.


I eventually gave up on Vista and just did a Win7 install yesterday.

Problem was identical!
