Currently Being ModeratedAug 31, 2009 3:32 PM (in response to Lee Adair)Hey guys, just a heads up. I noticed when I upgraded to Snow Leopard (10.6), the installer moved the SiliconImage3132.kext and SiCoreService files into the Incompatible Software folder. I was sporadically using LaCie's SATA II ExpressCard 34 adapter and never had much luck with it. Now 10.6 won't mount the HDD at all and VMware doesn't see it either.

I followed edualonso's advice and installed Silicon Image's driver (v 1.1.9) and can confirm it is working great on Snow Leopard. I've done some preliminary tests copying large (+4 GB) files and doing a few Time Machine backups with no problems.15" MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6)

You happen to have a download link for that version of the driver.
I'm have a heck of a time finding it.

Currently Being ModeratedSep 1, 2009 9:46 AM (in response to jetlagjoe)Yeah, it's a challenge to find on Silicon Image's site. I used the link that was previously posted successfully:

Currently Being ModeratedSep 10, 2009 12:39 PM (in response to ClimbrJohn)I'm having issues with my Norco 5-drive eSATA RAID array and found this thread lastnight after coming to the scary realization that snow leopard broke compatibility with the drivers for my eSATA card, which is used primarily for HD video processing (and is based on the Silicon Image 3132)
I installed the driver linked above, and after numerous tries and restarts I finally got my RAID to mount. It worked perfectly for about 30 minutes until I had to restart (because of another unrelated snow leopard problem) and upon startup, my RAID would not mount. I've tried re-installing the driver, but to no avail.
I'm nearing production on a couple of projects and I am just KICKING myself now for upgrading to snow leopard. Photoshop CS3 doesn't work worth a sh*t either, but that's a whole 'nother story.
Waiting patiently for silicon image to give us an updated driver....

Currently Being ModeratedOct 8, 2009 11:55 AM (in response to jetlagjoe)I tried LaCie updated driver but still get kernel panic on insertion of card. I then tried Sil3132_1.1.9 which stopped the kernel panic upon insertion of Expresscard but I still get random kernel panics while the drive is reading or writing large files.
My drive is formatted as a 4T concatenated drive. How are the drives that are working fine formatted? I wonder if this is making a difference2.16 GHz Intel Core Duo, Mac OS X (10.5), 2 GB
Currently Being ModeratedOct 26, 2009 2:35 PM (in response to ClimbrJohn)This worked for me. I had bought a new card figuring mine was ruined because it got some paper in the teeth. But, now that I installed the base driver it now works on my system...so far. I can't say much for Snow Leopard...I have always faithfully downloaded or purchased the MAC updates successfully...until Snow Leopard I have had no issues. With SL, I have crashes daily, multiples in fact. Where I never had them before. FCP, itunes, finder, etc. I keep hoping for some upgrades to help. Small steps I guess.
