    I have some smaller PATA drives lying around that I thought I could use for backups, so purchased this type of docking station from Ebay

    (not this particular seller)

    but I am having problems with it (surprise,surprise). Basically I cannot have SATA and PATA at the same time. More specifically with a PATA drive docked and working, it will disconnect at soon a plug the eSATA cable in - that is with no SATA drive docked.

    The supplied power adaptor is rated at 2 amps so that should not be the problem.

    Reading elsewhere on the web there are many problems with it, but also some that don't.

    I am assuming that there is some fault within the gadget but would welcome some advice on this.
