Enclosures with eSATA / SATA are difficuilt to find. Currently I’m planning to “mod” a few of my Mapower H51 enclosures. Since I hate enclosures tih external power supplies I do not have any choice and I have to make my “own” enclosure…
I’ll exchange the bridgeboard. Since most of my H51 enclosures has the “typical” SCSI plug holes I’ll change the bridgeboard with one of these IOI boards.
As far as I understood everything correctly the FWBU2DSATA01 and UF2DSATA01 supperts eSATA in “host mode”.
With the IOI bridges every SCSI enclosure should be changed to a USB/FireWire/eSATA enclosure with IDE or SATA optical drive.
Currently I’m getting more information on it and in a few weeks I’ll buy one board for testing issues. In Germany I found a few shops. I guess in UK there are also sources.
