Hi, am using a Plugable PCI Express to SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Two-Port Expansion Card with a power cable connected, along with a Plugable USB 3.0/2.0 SATA Hard Drive Docking Station (LucidPort chipset)
After about an hour or so of writing to the drive my backup crashes out on the server with lots of error 51’s and a few 57’s
The backup logs that the external drive is not a valid drive, then everything goes back to normal.
I experienced this also when trying to use WD Passport drives, however My Book drives plugged in to the card worked fine.
This was why I bought the powered Plugable drive dock, thinking that the card’s power, even with power plug, might not have been enough for the Passports.
I don’t yet believe the dock is at fault though, as I had the issue with the Passports.
Is there a firmware update for the card? The dock is already up to date, and am using the latest drivers for the card.
