I just purchased, probably prematurely, a SIIG Ultra ATA/133 PCI controller. Here's a link:

The problem is that there is a mac version of the ATA PCI card that they offer:

Will the card that I purchased work with my mac? Can I hack a driver???

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

I think you'd be much better off returning what you got and buying the Mac-specific card - assuming no one here posts drivers for the one you bought - than trying to track down drivers.

Can you return it? Or has it been opened? If opened, will they let you return it if you buy a different card from them?

Well, the stupidity went beyond ordering the wrong card. The outer plastic was removed, however, the inside packaging is still intact. I ordered it from tigerdirect and I don't think that they have any stuff for macs to exchange it for. Any suggestions would be EXTREMELY appreciated.

Thanks,
