Don’t tell me I have to connect them via USB – oh the pity of it! To anyone planing on moving to Snow Leopard if you are using a eSata card you need to check to see if it is compatible. I have a JMicron chip card only issue is it only has 1 eSata port not 2 like my Griffin card that uses the now bad drivers. Apparently the driver still works. Thanks for the tip! I was somewhat hopeful that this idea might work. I have tried contacting Leaf Computer by phone but as yet have got no reply.

I don’t think the problem is with your LaCie 4Big drives, however.

Unleash Mountain Lion’s true potential. No promises that this any of this will be the same for you, but here’s how the problem was corrected for me.

But today, a light at the end of this particularly irritating tunnel. Might wait for those to come out but I am getting impatient running these 2Bigs on FW Because of all the esata driver issues, I am seriously considering moving my drives into a gigabit ethernet enclosure.

Don’t let technology get in the way of your creativity! For a while I was able to use my eSata express card to work with the external drive when in loon 32 bit environment. I have tried contacting Leaf Computer by phone but as yet have got no reply.


It works fine as long as I insert it before I power up. That’s not Apple screwing editors. My concern is getting to that data, not setting up a new storage system.

So far so good. Not in 32bit or 64bit environs. Pulled that card and have been using them w apiotke Firewire interface since. Now how often does THAT happen??

I have an eSata card in my Mac Pro and the original driver is incompatible, and the apiotem download fixed it. I would assume it will be faster. I hope for you that finally the driver and the year written works It seems to be the copies where it really has problems.
