I have a Powermac G4 mirrored drive door, and it isn't recognizing my SSD at all. I bought a SATA PCI card from Amazon that said it supports Macs, and I successfully installed the drivers for the card. When I plugged in the Patriot Torqx solid state drive, nothing happened, and it isn't showing up in System Profiler or disk utility. Could this be because the SSD is broken, or is it a connection issue? Or is there an issue with the power? It is plugged in with a standard molex to sata power cable. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thankyou!

PowerMac, Mac OS X (10.5)
