Thank you Donavon – HP MediaSmart eSATA update

Well, I spent the last hour trying to figure out why my MediaSmart HP home server would not detect an external eSATA Iomega Drive.   It turned out to be as simple as updating the driver on the Home Server as per Donavon’s blogpost here.   (Thanks man)

Why HP are not releasing this as an automatic update I do not know!   Home Servers for end users need to be kept NICE and SIMPLE….   

Mind you….   this is the same HP that bundled McAfee “Kill your HP Homeserver in one complete installation” package as an update as well
