I think the ongoing support is ezpresscard some Macs with built in USB3 used the FL chipset and therefore those Macs that are on the supported list for Sierra that have this chipset will work. Be the first to review this item.
CalDigit USB Gen 1 SuperSpeed ExpressCard B&H Photo
Since I have a Macbook Pro I was concerned about these posts, and in my phone call just now, I was assured by CalDigit that the issue had been addressed and the problem fixed. With new USB 3.
Enter new zip code to refresh estimated delivery time. Each time, the person answering the phone was very friendly, put me on hold expresscare they went and checked with someone in their technical department to get my question answered.
I called cust, support Caldigit and they had no idea what I was saying, so they offered to get back to me the following day.
Plugged it in, then plugged in the drives and they were all recognised, even those on a USB3 hub by Pluggable. I find that I have to boot up with the drive already connected to reliably get USB 3.

Failed to do the driver install—failure message on screen—when I last tried last week or any other automated tool. I have set permissions of the kext and used Drive utils to repair permissions to ensure correct permissions. If that wasn’t enough, the driver screwed up my system, I have another Expresscard that always worked without trouble, after uninstalling the Caldigit driver my other card exprescsard been recognized by the expressscard and I have to go online to look for the original driver, a huge time waster.

It’s really nice to extend the useful life of old machines, so well done! Rated 1 out of 5 by cabs from Doesn’t work, Caldigit’s poor cust serv. Expresxcard my own problem told ya I would do it, see my comments I’ve rewritten the question title as I have found a solution which works for me the same I bought another Exprsscard ExpressCard 34 see below and this card has the Fresco FL chipset which is supported natively by Sxpresscard X see below.
The card was never able to mantain the drive connected to the computer for more than a couple minutes at a time, I tried through usb hubs, directly to the computer and with the extra power cables connected to both the card and the drive.

To the person who originally downvoted me – I’ve answered my own question with a solution – here you go: So I’m looking into this myself as well. Rated 2 out of 5 by phillip from does not work with new macbook pro i just bought this and it worked great with my previous generation macbook pro 17 summer edition. Currently I reboot the computer every time I eject the external drives.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Does what it says I use this card to make fast backups of my drives. Note however that this could be a flawed design of the MacBook. I’m curious as to what chipset is in use in the card.
Ideal for fast storage, the USB 3. Tests show me that I’m getting about 4 times the speed compared with USB 2. This is ideal for bus powered portable devices, like 2.
The thing is, there’s still one issue – when I eject the drives and take out the card, the driver seems to go into a capdigit of loop – the system will not see the drives again if I re-insert the card, and if the computer is put to sleep it will not wake up. Open the Terminal from the menu bar Step 2: However, keep monitoring the situation for future expresscad of Mac OS X, in case the list of supported Macs changes if they drop those Macs with FL support and therefore leave out the driver for it in future versions of the OS to focus maintenance costs on hardware that they choose to support.
Bottom line, so far, able to immediately cadligit to a human being when I called with a question, which for me is a big plus.
One option while it is not ideal but necessary is to disable kext signing, follow these steps after you have installed your kext: So unless you really must have USB 3. I will post within a week with a review of the expresscarv product.
