    So I got this eSATA card (http://www.amazon.com/Iomega-eSata-PCI-Card-controller/dp/B000Y15DNO) for my MacPro a while back and was able to install quite easily. I've done a fresh install on a new harddrive of my OS and no longer have the driver disc for the eSATA card. Does anyone know a method for ripping the drivers from my old hard drive? Or does anyone know where I can actually get the driver? I can't seem to locate it anywhere on Iomega's site.

    I am assuming your old drive is a boot drive and can still be mounted. If so, I suggest looking in its /System/Library/Extensions directory for some appropriately named kext, e.g., containing possible words like iomega, esata, express, x1, or some such words to identify it. I would think that would be the driver your after. If you find it copy it to your new /System/Library/Extensions directory.

    Thanks, I found the directory, but I am not finding anything that has language related to those or similar keywords. Would anyone have any other leads as to the file name?
