Hi,

I'm trying to get the port multiplier functionality of this card working together with the USB 2.0 & eSATA Docking & Cloning Station for 2.5" & 3.5" SATA Hard Drives (42797) but with no success. Both state they support port multiplier. I upgraded to this card from Lindy 70996 specifically for the PM functions.

I've tried the drivers from the Lindy website and also the latest from the VIA website (for VIA RAID 3249, 5.1.7600.593) but can still only see a single drive.

Have you any suggestions for what I can try next?

Hi - I should have said, I'm running this on a Dell Latitude D610 Laptop with XP Pro SP3.

Anyone from the Lindy side that can check this for me?

Hi Barry,

Sorry for the delay in not getting back to you. We have been looking into this and the unit that you have should provide port multiplier function automatically, there is nothing to enable.

I have double checked the chipset support and I don't think that this unit supports port multiplier because of the VIA chipset. It's conclusive that this does not work in your setup and I have doubled checked VT6421 support.

Please accept our apologies for this, we can give you a full refund if your provide your invoice details. Please complete a returns form here - http://www.lindy.co.uk/shop/showPage.do?page=returnsEU

Going forward I suggest that you try to find a card with a Silicon Image 3124 chipset. We don't sell one at the moment unfortunately.

Best Regards
