Hey geeks!

I recently found out that my external I bought a while ago came with not only a USB, but a Firewire and eSATA cord as well. I'm using a LaCie D2 Quadra 500GB external at the moment. I've been using Firewire lately but just today tried to use the eSATA and got no response. When plugged in via USB or Firewire, my computer sees the hard drive and works fine, however when I plug it in with an eSATA cord, nothing happens. Is this as simple as updating a driver, or perhaps a bad cord?

Any help is appreciated!
