It's not just a driver, Do you have a SAS interface in your PC?

Maybe you should post a spec and description of what you do have?
A 2.5" 15K SAS drive would generaly require mounting in a rack which includes the required cooling, trying to mount it in a PC without a cooler cause it to over-heat.

I have a Gigabyte GA-N650SLI-DS4L motherboard ,E 6550 Intel processor, 4Gb RAM. I found a post google-ing saying that only the new motherboards such as Asus P7P55 support this kind of SAS hard drives.I am not sure.....so there's no other way to use it on a older PC?

Thanks
