eSATA to Computer...
« on: February 06, 2024, 10:37:42 AM »
Hi! I'm saving tiffs to a 480GB Sandisk SSD Plus via eSata. I thought this was the recommended method, but how is everyone getting their videos onto their computers? Right now i'm switching out the cables (from a 22pin SATA/esata cable to a 22pin SATA/usb cable)...which I worry is going to break down the SSDs pins over time. I tried this cable (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00N1KYP7U?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details) but then the hard drive doesn't show up on the camera or the computer...any advice is very much appreciated!!
Thank you!!
Laura

If your drive isn't showing up, it might not be getting enough power.

I use an eSATA cable with my Chronos 2.1 and a TEAMGROUP GX2 Solid State Drive. Luckily haven't had any issues with connectors breaking.

eSATA cable: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00GM7CMFG/

SSD: https://www.amazon.com/TEAMGROUP-Internal-Solid-State-T253X2001T0C101/dp/B07PX2KKHM

Caddy: https://www.amazon.com/Atomos-Master-Caddy-Monitors-Recorders/dp/B00TP4ZH14/

Clamp for mounting the caddy on the Chronos: https://www.amazon.com/SMALLRIG-Holder-Portable-Power-BUB2336/dp/B07T6L34VD/

Docking station for my computer: https://www.amazon.com/Atomos-Powered-Docking-Station-ATOMDCK004/dp/B07J34K4G6/

The cable you are currently using https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00N1KYP7U?ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details
provides power through the USB only.

You need to use a eSATA to SATA Cable that provides power through eSata. You can see an image of the cable here: https://www.krontech.ca/product/esata-to-sata-cable/

I have this cable as well. I am looking for a way to connect that cable to a computer to get the data off that drive...

Maybe adapt the eSATA cable to USB with a product such as this? https://www.amazon.com/ShineBear-Converter-Adapter-External-Compatibility/dp/B07NNT9P58/
