    Use Sonnet's 1.2.6 driver. It works perfectly.

    and I downloaded the sonnet driver you link to Rick for use with my lycom 34express card...it works, but one of the five drives in my burly refuses to boot up, show up on my desk top...any ideas?...i pulled it out, cleaned it a bit, popped it back in...all the lights on front of the burly are on, the burly sees it, registers it, but it won't show up...

    thanks

    First is to use Disk Utility. Try and mount it. Also try First Aid on that drive. If the drive is showing up then the bus is working. Need to do repairs on the directory or else it just needs to be told to mount.

    Hi Rick...when I open Disk Utility the disk doesn't show up there. How would I try and mount it?...

    I did try another disk I have in the same bay and it spun up and shows on my desktop so I know the bay is ok...

    it's real odd...this disk that won't show worked fine with 10.6.8...

    I would try it in different drive bays, just in case. But it sounds like a dead drive. Drives can do that - coincidence RULES. Work on one thing and something else will fail.

    Do some searching, and you will find plenty of oddball 3rd party drive issues with 10.8. No apparent reasons or solutions. Some stuff works, and some doesn't. Often the very same stuff on identical systems.

    The term voodoo comes to mind......

    Default tried some things this morning...

    booted of another drive back into 10.6.8 - no dice…drive doesn't show up...

    tried another bay in the burly - no dice…

    put the drive in an external drive enclosure from OWC…tried it via esata connection and got nothing…

    but, i then tried it via the 400 and 800 fw connections and for the first time the disk showed up in the Disk Utility program…when I tried to verify or repair I got the following messages :

    trying Verify : Problems found with partition map which might prevent booting.
    Error: some information was unavailable during an internal lookup.

    trying Repair : problems were encountered during repair of partition map…

    Ok, so does this mean this hard drive is toast and I should just try and erase/reformat the thing?…also, not sure I trust it anymore anyway...

    Rick, M. Brane, thanks for the suggestions so far...

    Door stops or paper weights come to mind. I think Rick, as he most often does, called it spot on. Hope the data has a back up.

    Paper weights, that dates me.

    If the data is backed up, then there is no reason not to attempt a zero erase. That will quickly tell if the drive is toast or not.

    Hi Rick...it is all backed up, in two places, so no worries...but each time this happens it gives me an anxiety attack...

    I'll probably try what you suggest, but honest, I don't trust it anymore, it's five years old...i'm gonna order a new one...

    so, I've got me a rather expensive paper weight/door stop...

    thanks for all the help...

    5 years is a long life for drives these days.

    I run a three year cycle any longer. Too easy to let them get old and lose a days work over a drive that shoulda been replaced a year ago. Backups are religious, so hopefully a days work is the only risk.

    Default it's official...

    my drive is a paperweight...tried to zero it out and nothing, nada...

    it's a 750gb seagate...will upgrade with a 2tb, the kind you guys sell here...a little tempted by the 3tb model, only 30 euros more, but damn, it seems like overkill, even for me...I've been fine the last two years or so replacing the 750's with 2tb models...'cause i'm in europe I'll order here...

    I may put in an order with you guys/macgurus next time i visit...this summer/fall?...i need to upgrade my computer, waiting to see what apple does, a new macbook pro or a macpro and then I'll know my back up needs, see how the thunderbolt connection works out for my burly if need be...

    in the meantime, thanks again for all the feedback...i do appreciate your help...
