Your trouble has nothing to do with Intel as the eSATA are not run by Intel chipset as with many motherboard makers your eSATA is on a Jmicron chip as listed by ASUS and the drivers for that are here.
The P5Q PRO has on eSATA unless you are using the e SATA / 1394 bracket in which case make sure its on the Intel SATA ports as there is two Silicon Image SATA ports on that board.
P5Q PRO Turbo is the one with eSATA without the need for a bracket and is run by Jmicron.
thanks you for your answer...
I'm currently using a bracket which is connected to 2 SATA port of the Motherboard, and there is no JMicron Controller for this.
In my device manager, there is a "Intel (R) ICH10R SATA AHCI Controller".
The software Intel Matrix Storage send a message about "Drive is connected" when I switch on my hard drive.
Forthemore, freeze appeneds when I change the drivers for RST... and there is no freeze when I restored to Intel Matrix Storage 8.9 drivers.
Do you thinks that it's not possible to connect a eSata Bracket on two classic SATA port ?
I read something about a trouble with voltage or something like that, or another trouble about the size of the cable but I don't know if it will be the problem... and it's not learn why it's "works" with 8.9 but it's not works with the 9.6 drivers.

Yes I posted if you was using a bracket and that there is no Jmicron but there is two Silicon Image SATA ports at the bottom of the board.
Try the bracket on the Silicon Image SATA ports the Intel RAID may simply not like other external RAID devices to it.
First of all, THANK YOU FOR YOUR REPLY ! I had forgot there is another controller on the motherboard
This is a way to fix my problem about "windows not start when my 4To is plugged before windows was started".
Bytheway, the sillicon controller is not manage the hot plug... so I need to restart my computer to switch on/off the hard drive before the initialisation of the controller.
I thinks there is an issue with hard drive more than 2 To with Intel drivers on Windows 7 64 bits :
- disk manager show 2 To drive and a parition of 4 To that make no sense !
- RST freeze when I switch on my Fantec 4 To whereas the Fantec 2 To works wonderfull with RST
- Snow Leopard reconnized a drive of 4 To and 4 to for the partition
- Intel Matrix Storage 8.9 works with Fantec 4 To (but windows not starting when this drive is switch on before Windows starts)
All of this point seems to show me that there is a trouble with this new drivers.
Is any one has the same probleme that mine ?
