Also, I think Velociraptors need 12 volt power, so you won’t be able to use it in most 2. To the guys that have it working- do you have just the Sil driver in your extensions folder or do you have two – the other one called something like silr5 which is the RAID 5 driver? In either case it needs reboot mostly for either the Mac OS to see it or of course for the FirmTek driver to see. To save space here page already huge see my comments in the Jan.

Esara via a USB connection, a Velociraptor is a better experience while in the virtual machine – I’ve done it in a standard 3. I don’t know of anyone that’s tried one with a MBP however. If I had one I’d disable spotlight indexing on it and turn off hibernate mode saves writing GB’s of ram contents to disk at sleep – plus delete the existing sleepimage file, expres GBs of SSD space.

Lastly, after repeated copies back and forth of large. Hoping that Apple comes out with a fix for this issue soon I’m also curious if the natively supported in OS X Aside from just mounting the.

Hope it is works for others too. Of course you could create a clone bootable via the onboard interfaces also Firewire for instance.

Any of recent or GB per platter drives would probably exceed firewire ‘s bandwidth.


Yes, in the firmware tab of the card you can see the version of the firmware. I should point out that Apple’s website claims the incompatible version of these drivers is “1. In his case a natively supported JMicron chip based card. Performance-wise, using the esata connection generally significantly outperformed the USB port on seata combo-drive.

Best eSATA ExpressCard/Enclosure for the MBP?

After testing, I found out that the SSD is vulnerable to overheating. As soon as I unplug the card, all of my problems magically disappear.

It even mounts drives or partitions with a FirmTek custom icon which is great to be able to distinguish the Express Card volumes from others on desktop. Folks love to jump all over the data transfer limitations usb or firewire and comparisons, but forget two important characteristics a Velociraptor would bring in an external solution.
