Galaxy METAL GEAR 5202AUAS enclosure and SH-S203B

I just ordered this enlcosure and SH-S203B from newegg. It will be used on a silicon image eSATA controller. Does anyone know if the driver for this is necessary? I am running Vista 64-bit. It comes with a driver disk, but doesn’t specify 64-bit support. The website doesn’t even offer driver downloads for this enclosure.

Anyone using this enclosure on 64-bit Vista? Can you share your experience please.


I suspect, the drivers on the CD are intended for Windows 98SE (for USB operation). More recent Windows flavours have built-in drivers for USB mass storage.
In case the SATA connection shall be used, no drivers for the enclosure are needed since there is no difference between the external and the internal connected SATA drive.
