Forums Apple Final Cut Pro Legacy Snow Leopard Incompatibility With Many eSATA Cards

  • Snow Leopard Incompatibility With Many eSATA Cards

    To anyone planing on moving to Snow Leopard if you are using a eSata card you need to check to see if it is compatible.

    Any eSATA card that uses Silicon Image SiI3132 Drivers is not compatible and will cause kernal panics.

    Sadly the the majority of eSata Express cards use that driver.

    There are no “technical solutions” to your “artistic problems”.

    And, for good reason that can and will cause user panic.

    actually not…

    funny I posted this on a related topic, but during the installation process with Snow Leorpard the incompatible files are moved into a separate labeled folder to keep some of that panic to a minimum.

    What does this do however in terms of making a raid function properly?

    Also, that link seems to have gone to link heaven. What happened?

    the incompatible software thing only comes up i believe if you fun Snow Leopard as an upgrade, not as a clean install like i did.

    eSata cards that use the JMicron chip seem to be time and actually require no drivers at all as they are natively supported by the OS.

    I have a JMicron chip card only issue is it only has 1 eSata port not 2 like my Griffin card that uses the now bad drivers.

    no issues with my Sonnett ExpressCard eSata card. I did have to re-install the driver.

    FCS 3 – MBP 2.93ghz 4gb RAM, 300gb 7200 Internal HDD, iStarUSA Dual Dock with (10) 1TB 3.5 Seagate Barracuda drives, and a couple 250’s Maxtors, and Seagates.

    Sonnet PCIe E4P works fine with the old driver.

    Can anyone confirm that the eSata cards that come with the Matrox MX02 work okay? (Am hoping to purchase an MX02 soon). Thanks.

    [James Iles] “Can anyone confirm that the eSata cards that come with the Matrox MX02 work okay?”

    James, the Matrox MXO2 comes with an ExpressCard/34 based PCIe adaptor … its not an eSATA card. (It works fine but please bear in mind that it is not officially supported until Matrox release SL specific drivers).

    Best

    Works in Safari on Snow- I checked it to make sure

    Well that would be a different story-since without connection to the RAID you do not have one, but it should not have affected anything stored on that RAID volume.
