i just bought this a few days ago.

Here is the description for the part.

The one I bought is this
Dell PERC 6/i T774H SAS RAID Controller + Battery&Cable
http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=...

I bought a SAS to 4 SATA cable to pair with the card, but the controller can't see any SATA drive.

I installed LSI MegaRAID Storage Manager 9.0 and the software can't find any drives attached, either.

So is the card bad or this card just won't recognize SATA drive and only SAS drive can be used?

Thanks!

Problem sloved! It's the cable.

Bought another cable at Fry's and it's working.

I have picked up this same card - can you tell me what cable you got so I can avoid the same error?
