    Default Lycom eSATA 2 Port PCIe Host Card and Lion

    I have the Lycom eSATA 2 Port PCIe Host Card which goes to a Burly Box for backups only. I am pretty sure that is the card, it identifies itself as pci1095,3132 in the System Profliler, alas, no driver installed.

    I just upgraded to Lion.

    Is a driver in the works or do I need a new card? The Mac Tower is a 2008 2x3GHz Quad Core Xeon (MacPro3,1) with PCIe slots.

    Hey, give the Sonnet driver a try. It seems to work for everyone.

    What Burly case do you have? I have the 5 bay with Port Multiplier and am waiting for a driver to work with Lion and the 2 port card.

    I have the same 5 bay and the Sonnet driver linked to by Rick above worked fine for me under Lion.

    Default and Mountain Lion compatibility?

    Any word on the Lycom SATA III 2 port driver with Mountain Lion? Still the Sonnet driver?
