However on installing that driver the response of the MacBook Pro was that now I cannot see my external disks at all. The machine did boot via the card with no issues. The application will try and start, but will freeze and then I cannot even force quit it. Way too big for my MBP’s internal drive , and sometimes when I first put in the card and mount the drive I’m unable to start any applications or transfer any volume of data to the drive without a crash. And there’s other warnings before upgrading to OS X The chip in this card is not the problematic Sil chipset.

I have an eSata card in my Mac Pro and the original driver is incompatible, and the dynex download fixed it.

Disabling journaling expresscarv tip was one temporary workaround used by some until the firmware update was released And expresscardd that year some iMac owners reported similar problems with Samsung F1 drives with firmware 1AA01 and earlier IIRC back then. I’d tend to doubt it affects that, but welcome confirmation. The card is at my office now, I’ll check the profiler tomorrow. Took 28min, 4 seconds for the copy back to the notebook HD.

Hi there, I have been reading Rafal Lamberts mail which exprsscard leaf-computers eSata Express Cards as a solution to the desperate problem of no eSata connection to my external hard drives due to upgrading to Snow Leopard. Sticky on that above. I’ve updated the firmware of my card Delock single esata port in MacBook Pro early but I didn’t notice any improvement. Other than the system profiler difference.

So, I’m pretty happy with it. Console always reports a “Bus error” of some kind. Operating draw is much less than spinup however but I’d still prefer a 3A supply for it.

Third, the battery and charging circuitry is in close proximity to the EC slot. Both caused kernel panic. Has anyone else had this problem with the LaCie card?

To anyone planing on moving to Snow Leopard if you are using a eSata card you need to check expresscard see if it is compatible. PanaVise PortaGrip car mount keeps a fierce grip on phones With its thick plastic arms and strongly engineered hinges, the PortaGrip car mount won’t be easily dislodged from a windshield or broken in the automotive environment.

I suspect the people that are still exprssscard esata issues with the latest drivers are using RAID, the people that have it working did not use RAID.

Snow Leopard Incompatibility With Many eSATA Cards

I had one of the natively supported eSATA expresscards JMB chipset, single port but stopped using it due to possible data corruption issues mentioned here several years ago. I asked for a download page URL, as expresscarrd not listed on their driver downloads page for the SiL Here is the link to the download page for the firmware.

Also a second question. I’ll re-test it again when OS X And with a fresh install of Leopard updated to Return to posts index.


Data corruption on many different external drive devices. Cheers, Jan” Thanks Jan. The verify failed, but only due to the volume header being different which is normal for a fresh clone.

Checked both the MD5’s and the came back gricfin same and both mounted without a hiccup. After inserting the card again, the eSATA drive mounted after a few seconds.

Sonnet also posted their repackaged version of these drivers. Mine are LaCie 2Bigs. Even one failure out of dozens is too many. Viper SmartKey unlocks cars with hands-free ease, but requires alarm. Not sure they have esqta later firmware for the drive, or if this is a known problem. Argy can move a dance floor of sweaty bodies with house music without resorting to the hands-in-the-air syncopated beats that often have wailing house divas behind them.

Having been recommended and buying a Sonnet card as a solution to the old card I have found that I cannot see my drives at all. If I had one I’d disable spotlight indexing on it and turn off hibernate mode saves writing GB’s of ram contents to disk at sleep – plus delete the existing sleepimage file, saving GBs of SSD space.
