I have ThinkPad t410 , 2516CTO
I connecting to it new Verbatim HDD by eSATAp cable.
Drive is never get powered.
though with USB help it works by eSATA fine.
It looks like that's Powered port is just simulation
How could I test what's wrong: notebook port, a BIOS/SATA setting, cable or drive enclosure?
