    Upgraded to Lion and now the eSATA card doesn't work properly. I have tried upgrading drivers but no luck.
    I am certain it's a Silicon Image 3132 chip

    I don't see a question there either, but this might help:

    Silicon Image drivers Problems with Mountain Lion

    2009 MacPro with eSata card went through grief with the upgrade from Snow Leopard to Lion. But during the upgrade yesterday to Mountain Lion, the installer moved the kext file to the Incompatible Drivers folder and took my external multidrive box offline. Time machine restore back to 10.7 got me working again, but ... known working drivers should not be "killed" like that.

    Anyone else see this issue?

    I have a genirc silicon image card also. When I upgraded to Mountain Lion I too had the drivers moved to the Incompatible Software folder. It was verson 1.2.5.0. I just reinstalled the same drivers and all is well. I think I did the same when I went to Lion.
