Data corruption on many different external drive devices. Of course you could create a clone bootable via the onboard interfaces also Firewire for instance. I never owned one of these cards and didn’t know if they were even firmware upgradeable. He said these installed fine. I installed my brand new copy of Snow Leopard this morning and everything was fine until I tried to plug my external gb Western Digital drive via my Dynex ExpressCard.

Rather than having TM on all the time.

Thank you for joining the HomePod Live Event! I’m running a 17″MBP Be careful that there are 3 files in the folder, you must use the file prefixed by “r” if your card is a Raid 5 one, or the file prefixed by “b” if your card is a base one.

Snow Leopard Incompatibility With Many eSATA Cards

Not sure they have any later firmware for the drive, or if this is a known problem. Overall, it’s been solid as a rock. With PL Chip set. The event is now closed. BUT, out of desperation after looking in several sites including, Dynex’s, Silicon Image’s and another one I can’t remember, I ended up re-downloading the driver Sil and installing it again, miraculously the hard drive is up again and apparently running as usual, I loaded a Premiere Project just to test and so far so good.

Just popped it in the slot and started using it. Ii had written last year about the Checksum test failures with the previous non-slim JMB card in my MBP early 17in as well as similar results from others including reports below. I also did a disk utility erase and partition to create one partition and it failed again. I don’t know why this worked but it did.

This has happened twice. Console always reports a “Bus error” of some kind. The first time I used the card, I tried to use the Disk Utility to “restore” my boot drive to the eSATA, as soon as I entered my apootek password, an immediate kernel panic.
