          i dont know if this is board-specific problem, but i had the same problem with my new hp laptop. Once i transfer multiple movies to my esata hdd, it gets disconnected after about 10minutes.

           

          SOLUTION:

          i found this solution from another forum.

           

          open COMPUTER

          right click on your esata drive (actually, any drive is fine)

          click PROPERTIES

          go to HARDWARE tab

          select your esata drive

          click PROPERTIES

          go to POLICIES tab

          UNTICK: enable write caching on the device

           

          although there is a risk of data loss when power fails, its your choice...

           

          but this solved my own problem, i can now copy any amount of files on my esata drive.
