    I purchased the Orico PFU3 4 Port USB 3.0 card for my Mac Pro 1,1.

    Unfortunately the native drivers are set for Mountain Lion which I can not run.

    Is there a way to export those drivers and import them into Snow Leopard?

    Thanks

    You could try MultiBeast for Snow Leopard. It lists support for certain chipsets...

    USB 3.0 - NEC/Renesas
    Enables USB 3.0 ports for systems using the NEC/Renesas D720200 controller or Etron EJ168 controller. LaCie driver patched by modbin. Installs PXHCD.kext in /System/Library/Extensions/.​

    The Orico PFU3 doesn't use any of those chipsets; it uses Fresco Logic chipset.

    OP, you either need to install ML (I read it is possible on the MP1,1) or you need a USB card with drivers for legacy OS versions.
