id eSata card

I have a eSATA card with no labels that can tell me what brand/model it is. I installed it on a Dell Precision 490 Windows 7 64 bit machine to try and identify. It shows up as "Mass Stroage Controller!" in devise manager

I also installed Belarc to try and identify, the report it gives is:
Controllers:
ATA Channel 0 [Controller] (2x)
ATA Channel 1 [Controller] (2x)
ATA Channel 2 [Controller]
ATA Channel 3 [Controller]
ATA Channel 4 [Controller]
Standard AHCI 1.0 Serial ATA Controller
Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE Controller
Bus Adaptors:
Intel(R) 631xESB/6321ESB/3100 Chipset USB Universal Host Controller - 2688
Intel(R) 631xESB/6321ESB/3100 Chipset USB Universal Host Controller - 2689
Intel(R) 631xESB/6321ESB/3100 Chipset USB Universal Host Controller - 268A
Intel(R) 631xESB/6321ESB/3100 Chipset USB Universal Host Controller - 268B
Intel(R) 631xESB/6321ESB/3100 Chipset USB2 Enhanced Host Controller - 268C

The card is red and has 5 eSATA ext. connections using a PCI-X 64 bit slot

any suggestions

In device manager, right click the device, click properties go to details tab, select "Hardware IDs" from Property, you should see something like PCI_VEN_8086&Dev..... the 8086 is vendor ID. You can search for vendor at this site

Did you try the normal Windows update option to check if there is a driver?

Right click device in Device manager and select Update Driver software - select to use the Online option and see if Microsoft have a driver for it...

I can't see anything on Silicon's site for that exact card...but since its a 3124 based card this is the closest driver I can find, might be worth a try if the first option doesn't work

Note extract that zip to a folder - then right click the device in Device manager like before - this time choose to update from local source and browse to the above unzipped folder and see if it likes it...

Can't say who built it may be some OEM  manufacturer but this site sales the card as Silicon Image 4-Port PCI-X eSata controller.

You can find drivers for it
