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

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

Thanks achaldave
I see:
PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3124&SUBSYS_31241095&REV_02
PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3124&SUBSYS_31241095
PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3124&CC_018000
PCI\VEN_1095&DEV_3124&CC_0180

when I search 1095
I get this info.:
http://www.pcidatabase.com/vendor_details.php?id=533 

Still can't narrow it down, can I get a little more help?

Thanks

Can you upload high def images of the card ? Based on the device id sting the card is made with silicon image inc chipset 3124. http://www.addonics.com/category/sata_controllers.php

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...
