    Installed the sil3132 drivers (non-raid) off their website and voila, works flawlessly in ML (GM). No KP's, not a single hiccup. When you plug the card it, it will show up without drivers installed. But when attaching esata device such as BlackXduet drive (dual HDD dock with esata) - nothing will show up, no esata devices attached will show up. You must install the drivers from the website then everything works as should. In fact, I have 4HDD's using the 2-blackXduet's connected to the two APIOTEK ports and the port multipliers work flawlessly.
    The card I have is an APIOTEK eSata II 3000 model express card adapter.

    Just FYI.

    OS X 10.8.1 may have issues

    Just to let you know. I had problems after I upgraded to 10.8.1. I moved my RAID drive back to FW800 and the issues went away but you may want to be sure that you have a TM backup of your system before you upgrade to 10.8.1.

    I am still investigating this. But my RAID drive has been know to be flakey sometimes on eSATA.

    Has anyone identified a solution for the eSATA card with Mountain Lion? My
    MP see it (pci1095,3132), but says the driver is not installed. I ran into this problem right after I installed Mountain Lion. Yes, it's been a while.

    Thank you

    Dear All,

    I trust this message finds you well and with your soul smiling.

    Every update of the Mac OS, I experience problems accessing my external drives. After a long and hard quest, I finally found a driver that seems to fix it, even today on Maverick. Living a bit to extreme in the now, I don't have the slightest clue where I found it.

    Please find, in attachment, the solution.

    Enjoy yet another marvelous day
