Solved Linksys WRT1900AC External Storage with Raid10 Encolsure

Specs: Windows 7, x980
I have a Sans Digital TowerRaid enclosure which I've been attaching to my Linksys WRT1900AC through USB 3.0 to convert into a NAS. The configuration is a 4 drive RAID 10, NTFS, GPT.

Recently I noticed that the USB 3.0 on the enclosure has been giving read errors and has been corrupting files (even when plugging directly into my computer) so I started using the eSata out of the enclosure and everything has been working fine. I now want to attach the enclosure back to the WRT1900AC using eSata, however, when connected this way, the router gives me an unsupported format message.

I've connected other eSata HDDs to the router without any issue and I've connected the enclosure directly to the computer with eSata. Why would the router recognize the Raid through USB 3.0 but not eSata?

✔ Best Answer
Is it possible that the router is expecting eSATAp and the enclosure only supports eSATA (or vice versa)?

You could probably buy an eSATA to USB converter and it should work fine - so long as the converter is active and not passive.
