I use standard Samsung Spinpoint drives and not the server grade drives as Google’s Hard Drive failure rate research paper suggests little significant differences in drive reliability once past a higher twelve month initial failure rate for standard drives.

sil3132 eSATA PCIe card in Mavericks

Installation was very simple, although the directions are not very specific. I have installed sil31332 drivers. Then I tried it the other way around. There is a tab to update the firmware, it is very easy.

In ps past though some had problems with the SI site ref drivers but not sonnet’s installer despite it often being the same version – perhaps something in their installer helped? Some enclosures feature port multipliers, which enable up to five hard drives to communicate with the host adapter through one cable. But I do have a 2 channel isolated controller box, so I guess I’ll use that for the time being until a usable workaround arrives and allows me to return to bit mode, but really for a file server that’s not that important I’m not using Sierra however.


I had purchased an esata Sonnet express card for my laptop and was happy with the support of Sonnet gives. I’ll get back in touch once I’ve tested booting and benchmarked the mwc. These drives include but are not limited to: The upgrade is currently used in Apple and Windows-based computers.

So, I’m pretty happy with it. I am simply double clicking on the mpkg file and following the prompts. All three have worked fine with Sil driver and OS Z Your Mass Storage.

RAID Controller | 2 port SATA II PCI Express RAID Card – Silicon Image SiI | SATA2-PCIE02

With the prior Silicon Image drivers I kept having the infamous grey screen of death. I paid the extra buck for a chance that port-multiplication will eventually be supported on the device [the device supports it, but reports on the internet say the Mac drivers included in the OS don’t support that feature].

Overall I’m very satisfied with the device.

Macc noticed an instant improvement in read times when quickly shuttling through HD timelines. The “Power off card” choice seems to do nothing, and ejecting the card manually, “hot,” without first going to the menu bar causes no problems. I’ve cleared driver caches, booted with -f option to rebuild driver cache, etc, and nothing seems to improve the reliability of it.


Return Address 4 potential args on stack 0x5b68bac8: Installed, restarted as instructed, turned on my drive enclosure, and the drive mounted right up. That’s one reason to run a 32bit kernel and you can still use 64bit apps. This is a very similar problem to the USB eject issue. Posted May 30, The verify failed, but only due to the volume header being different which is normal for a fresh clone. Hopefullly, it will be coming out on next major release pack Includes another warning to check for data corruptionespecially with natively supported JMB 36x cards.

Still with “unknown vendor” in the top right corner of the menu bar in OS X I subsequently purchased Snow Leopard but I use some Native Instruments music software that is now unsupported by Native Instruments and therefore won’t run on For me, it worked out of the box, without needing any drivers with In either case it needs reboot mostly for either the Mac OS to see it or of course for the FirmTek driver to see.
