I just bought a

Seagate 750GB Freeagent External HD, w/USB, Firewire, and most importantly eSata connections. (Model # ST307504FPA1E3-RK)

I wanted to get it going immediately, and living in NYC I also bought the only PCI-X card I could find from Tekserve, a

Lacie Sata II 3Gb/s PCI-X Card 4E

I installed the card and driver on my Powermac G5 Dual 2.0, (10.4.10), and although System Profiler recognizes the card on the PCI bus, it will not recognize the drive through the Esata connection. I tried all four of the ports, and nothing. Disk utility shows nothing there.

The G5 does recognize the drive through the USB 2.0 connection.

I don't know whether this card is compatible or not, and I can't find any information on what would be online.

Does anyone know how I can get the eSata to work?

Much obliged.
