XPS 8500 - ANYONE have a PCIe 1x eSata card working?
In reply to Mark Devine, Jul 22, 2012

This is a bit disconcerting, as the PCIe 1x eSata card failures appear to be piling up:

I am interested in knowing if ANYONE running an XPS 8500 has been able to get a PCIe 1x eSata card to work. If so, I would be interested in knowing the make and model of the card.

(Note from earlier posts: I have other PCIe 1x cards working in the 8500 - including an internal Sata card. Also - the eSata cards which do not work in the 8500 work perfectly in other Dell systems running Win7 Pro.)
