Hardware :: Finding A Dual ESATA Express Card That Works In Snow Leopard

Oct 17, 2009

The past few months I've made threads asking about eSata express cards and external storage and have received useful information. However, I've always neglected to ask this obvious and direct question. I've been recommended a few cards, one from OWC always comes up. But I never bothered to ask about "dual" versions because I thought I'd be able to find it on my own.

After weeks of casually looking around I wasted a few hours yesterday hard core searching online. I really need a storage solution for my exploding cache of photos and video that's been stockpiling and needs editing.

Perhaps FW800 or another interface could be a better solutions. But when I choose my new MBP 17" a few months ago I specifically kept the fact it retained the express card slot in mind because of it's higher transfer rates.

I'd get 1 TB but I'm thinking realistically I need 2+ TB of storage... and also I think I need to finally get my rear in gear about redundancy. I use Time Machine with an external FW400 HDD and back up my music separately there too but want to keep in mind future space should have redundancy in mind.

MacBook Pro :: ESata Express Card - Which One Actually Works

Mar 31, 2009

I have the new 15 in MBP and bought a e-sata express card from OWC which is the Apiotek Extreme Dual e-sata [URL]. At first it could not be seen so I went to there site and downloaded the driver for it and got several grey screens of death kernel panics. I know the Sonnet Tempo SATA Pro ExpressCard/34 is supposed to work on the new unibody but after all that I bought to get this system up to the speed I need, was trying to avoid another 280 dollars and want another 4gb Ram chip more. [URL]. I am only running one external drive like this for PS scratch, OS backup and a working drive that is partitioned in 3 sections. Wondering if there is another express card that is working in the new 15 in 2.93 without any issues.

Hardware :: Finding Express Card 34 To ESata II Data Rate Transfer Improvements?

Feb 25, 2008

I was wondering if there was any improvements choosing an Express Card to eSata over using Firewire 800?

This card states a transfer rate on the card up to 300 mbps which is nowhere near the 800 mbps that Fw800 will give?

Since upgrading to 10.5.8, my external WD My Book connected to the MacBook Pro (circa 2006) via a Best Connection JMicron-based express eSATA card has stopped being recognized and listed in the Finder upon boot up.

1) Has any one else had the same experience?

2) How does one remedy the problem?

3) Is it possible to revert back to OS 10.5.7?

Mac Pro :: PCI Express ESATA Card That Supports 64 Bit OS Kernel?

Mar 1, 2010

I'm new to Mac and loving it so far. I've been using Windows Vista Ultimate 64 bit for graphic and web design the past several years until I just couldn't take it any longer. Trouble is I had all my client files on an external Seagate hard drive with only an eSATA connection on the device (which I connected to my PC with the included eSATA PCI card.

But apparently my new Mac Pro will only accept PCI-express cards, and I'm having a hard time finding a PCI-express eSATA card that supports a 64 bit OS (I'm using Snow Leopard).

MacBook Pro :: Which Expresscard ESata Adapter Actually WORKS

Jul 7, 2009

I just did a search and found nothing but an extremely lengthy thread that makes no sense and doesn't even answer the question. I just want a simple answer here: I have a new 17" '09 uMBP. I want to use my eSata external hard drives. What expresscard adapter should I buy? I was transferring stuff over via USB and was horrified: 25 minutes to transfer 20 gigs of pictures! 20 gigs should take no more than 5, maybe 10 minutes tops over eSata (as it did on my old laptop). So which eSata-Expresscard actually works for the uMBP's?

Mac Pro :: ESATA PCI Card Freezing OS X Up

Jun 18, 2008

I installed a Dynex eSATA pci-e card into my Mac Pro. When i attempt to shut down, it never works, it hangs up with a blank screen and the wheel going round and round forever. Also, If I try to start up with an eSATA external drive on, it will never fully start up-just hangs up again. It will work if I plug the eSATA cable in after booting, then turn on the external drive, and likewise, eject it and power off before shutting down. I really do not want to have to go through this every time I start up / shut down.

Mac Pro :: ESATA Cable Won't Fit Into New Card?

Feb 24, 2010

Just got the new Newertech 6G ESATA card from OWC and I'm having problems getting my ESATA cable fitting into it. It does not go in very far, and never latches on to the two tabs. Before I go out and buy a new cable or return the card, please take a look at the two pics and tell me what's wrong. I'm afraid to try to force the cable in harder since it doesn't seem normal that there should be so much resistance.

EDIT: Jammed it in real hard and it seems to have seated itself, but the drive is not showing on the desktop or in Disk Utility. Mac Pro recognizes the card just fine (slot 4). Will try another cable, but something feels wrong about the card. It shouldn't take this much force to plug the cable in.

MacBook Pro :: Dual ESATA RAID Connection For Stripped Array Would Be Limited And Expresscard

Oct 28, 2009

The MBP has one expresscard slot. So if you use an eSata adapter (even if it has dual eSATA ports) it would only have one eSATA channel And that would be limited further by the express card slot and more still by the type of card (make, model, etc..). My question is: with Barefeats claiming even the best eSATA card for a MBP being 200MB/s (even if you claim less) using a dual eSATA RAID connection for a stripped array would be limited to 100MB/s per port. Is this correct? Because I'm trying to understand this to see if it's worth building a RAID setup for my MBP when I'm home.

I've asked this numorous times and get helpful advice but not addressng this specific and fundamental fact. I am not interested in FW800 because I want the fastest I can get but want it to make sense. I would also reask my other questions about my situation but this question comes first.

Mac Pro :: Sil3231 ESATA Card Just Won't Work?

Jan 12, 2010

I bought a USB2 + eSATA docking station for my Nehalem MP. The docking station works perfectly well using the USB2 port, but I just can't get the eSATA card to work.I have a cheap sil3231 card, I'm using siliconimage's latest OS X drivers, with a single drive (so no RAID), and it won't mount. I played around with the jumpers, nothing. Can anyone think of something I missed?

Mac Pro :: PCIe 2.0 Controller Card With 2 Esata Ports?

I was told to buy one of these [URL:...] because it is supposedly better than USB2/FW for external DVD burning.

1) Is that true?
2) What else could I use the eSATA port for?
3) Is there a better PCIe card I should consider for other purposes down the road?

Mac Pro :: Run Boot Camp Using PCIe ESata Card?

Mar 12, 2008

I've got a 2008 Mac Pro with 4 internal hard drives that are in a 0+1 software raid. Unfortunately, this prevents me from using Boot camp on any of these drives.

I'm curious, is there a PCIe card that adds eSata ports that would allow me to put Windows XP on an external enclosure that is bootable?

I've been scouring the message boards and forums and have found cards by CalDigit, FirmTek and Sonnet, but I have no idea if any of these will support with Boot Camp/Windows.

I'm not interested in using the on mobo SATA ports because A) they aren't recognized in Windows, and B) I don't want to put a drive up in the CD drive bays (because of the bad airflow).

MacBook :: Connect An ESATA Card Or FireWire 800 To 2008?

May 31, 2012

I have a late 2008 12" MacBook with a FireWire 400 slot (only).  I am hooking up an 8TB Raid hard drive to it for digitizing, backup and editing on FCP 6 and would like to have a higher speed available than the laptop's FireWire 400 provides.  Is there a way to augment/build out the MacBook to utilize either a FireWire 800 slot or an eSATA EC2 card?  I don't think this version of the MacBook (MacBook4,1) has a PCI or PCIe card slot.  Although I believe it may have a mini-PCIe card somewhere, as the last page of the Users Guide says (under Europe—EU Declaration of Conformity):

"Hereby, Apple Inc. declares that this 802.11a/b/g/n Mini-PCIe card is in compliance with the R&TTE Directive."

OS X :: Snow Leopard 64 Bit - Webex No Longer Works?

Nov 19, 2009

After upgrading to Snow Leopard a program I need for my job no longer works. The program is Webex. They claim that it should work by opening Safari in 32 bit mode or with Firefox, but neither option works for me. My plan is to reinstall Leopard (10.5) on an extra partition and reboot into it whenever I need to start a Webex session. I don't think this will cause any problem with my Snow Leopard partition, but thought I would check first.

Mac Pro early 2009 quad core

IMac :: (New 2010 System) Cannot Mount Mini PCI ESata Card

Nov 19, 2010

My buddy and I just finished swapping the airport card for a mini pci-e sata card in his 2008 Imac and all is well. Unfortunately, we could not get it to show or mount anywhere on mine (2010). We tried everything. We loaded the raid drivers and the none raid. We tried both cards (his and mine) in my machine and still nothing. His Imac mounted his ssd immediately after installing the drivers. Could it be that the new logic boards do not support this type of card? Is there a special driver that I need for the i7? I was hoping this would add 2 more sata ports.
