    I just got the apple mac pro raid card today, but after I connect it and all 4 SAS drives, the MAC OSX Installtion program can not detect the SAS at all, I open the RAID Utility but no dirve there, the battery is in charging status.

    Do I have to wait for a full charged raid card so that the SAS drives can be detected?

    Please anyone help?:confused: Thank you!

    My understanding

    and this is from memory only (and may be incorrect)....

    that the raid card must have full battery to configure the drives, not showing up may indeed be correct until the battery is charged

    After just reading another thread on the same topic i think you are correct, make sure the battery is fully charged
