Are esata devices not supported in windows 10?

I have a sata disk reader on my esata port. Windows 10 has not recognized it since the beginning. I am presently on build 10074.

I can take a disk that reads fine on my usb reader and put it in the esata device and I get nothing. The device is not even shown in the device manager.

If I run the hub as a usb device, it works perfectly. I prefer esata because of increased data rates.

Is esata supported in Windows 10? Could it be that my old device doesn't have a proper esata driver?

P5B mobo, Intel Core 2 6600 @ 2.4Ghz. 89gb ram. 1 2.0TB & 1 3.0TB drives.

The device (BlacX dual hub) worked fine via esata in Windows 7.

Thanks!

Hi,

Thank you for being a part of Windows 10 Technical Preview testing.

As Windows 10 is new operating system and it is still under development, all the hardware might not be compatible with Windows 10. I would suggest you to install esata in compatibility mode.

Make older programs compatible with this version of Windows

Post us the results after you try the above steps.
