    My udoo can't see anything from eSata.
    I try with OMV and when I'm at the step to see "physical data" nothing appear.
    I connect with ssh and I try the command "fdisk -l" and I can see only the sd volume.

    I also try with Volumio with this guide: ... html#p1775
    but still in the step with command "fdisk -l" nothing appear.

    I also try with different HD (in which I do a deep format, and after a ntfs format from windows).

    Then, it's my Udoo serial ata defective? How can I try this?

    I would install UDOObuntu on an SD card and then interrupt the uboot sequence (hit space). Then type sata part. You should see something like what I've posted below,
    UDOO board => sata part
    AHCI 0001.0300 32 slots 1 ports 3 Gbps 0x1 impl SATA mode
    flags: ncq stag pm led clo only pmp pio slum part
    SATA Device Info:
    S/N: S1D5NSBDC50613P
    Product model number: Samsung SSD 840 EVO 120GB
    Firmware version: EXT0BB6Q
    Capacity: 234441648 sectors
    Partition Map for SATA device 0  --   Partition Type: DOS
    Part    Start Sector    Num Sectors     UUID            Type
      1     16065           13607055        000c356e-01     83
    You can continue booting by typing boot. Sometimes my SATA drive won't initialize properly. You can address this by typing sata init and the continue with the steps above. If you can't ever get your drive listed, my guess is that your unit or cable is bad.
