If I insert the good card, the card is recognized,
and I can hot plug the external drive into the esata port
and all is well.
The Syba card freezes the system whether I plug it in
before or after boot.
To be fair to Syba, they gave me an RMA and I returned
it for an exchange. Will know in 2 weeks what the replacement
card will do.
