    I'd use an o-ring pick to pull the pieces out of the socket on the Burly. Have needed to do that a couple times. Never seen a new cable fall apart though. That sucks.

    It pull the tab out of the connector core? I suppose the cables are old enough to cause that kind of brittleness. A picture of the back would have told us what you have. But now we know. It is just a...

    Pictures are good. Broke the cables and broke the mount is hard to visualize.


    Don't know if you know this, but I can't tell what you have, or have ever purchased, based on your forum posts.

    Your box is SATA.

    Any card you get is eSATA.

    Need eSATA to SATA cables. So yes. If you want to install a new card then you will need adapter cables. Will work perfectly though.

    Yes. The card I linked is an eSATA card. If your Burly is eSATA then that card will work with it.

    Nothing odd about an eSATA card, common as dirt for the last 16 years. I am guessing that your Burly is an eSATA model with two eSATA cables. If so, you need a PCIe card with at least a pair of eSATA...

    Oh, now I understand. You were making a comparison between the two.

    A spinning hard drive is capable of max 200 MB/sec. SSD is capable of 450-500MB/sec. This is on a SATAIII bus which spec says is...

    If your Burly is trayless, then it doesn't have internal fans. If your Burly uses trays, then each drive has a fan and that makes a total of three fans. Depends on how your Burly was built. Two bay...

    That's a USB card. You would then be needing to convert your Burly to USB.

    Going to USB is more complex without any gains in performance. Here's how the logic looks with a USB bridge in between:

    I'd be much more inclined to stay eSATA and stick a current PCIe card in the new MacPro to run it. Bootable, native SATA from end to end instead of converting to another bus and then back...

    Does look like a dust flap with that corner end on it. I'd toss a blank disk in and make another burn. You only risk making a coaster out of it.
