    I read the manual and it doesnt specify support for anything over Windows 2000/XP.
  2. it doesn' look like it. thats what happens when ya get in a huury. any suggestions other than trash'n the card?
  3. Other than downgrade to Windows XP, heh heh, nope. Sorry.
    Have you tried this Driver? I just found it on their site.
    SiI 3124 64-bit Windows BASE Driver for Windows 7
    You also need the latest BIOS
  4. i sure did...........oh well. i gotta xp machine too
  5. I don't know this specific card but often with these plug in card you need to go into the RAID setup utility when booting the system and specify that the disk(s) attached to the card are non RAID, then windows will probably see them.

    Have you been into the Hardware manager to see if the DATA card have a yellow question mark against it, if so Windows does not know about the card, if not and it is show as working properly then windows built in drivers have taken care of business for you.
  6. gotta siig card and it works with the dp45sg.
    i have been wondering if the dp45sg is SATA III compatible?
