I bought a generic branded USB 3.0 expresscard/34. It's labeled as a Prosignal USB 3.0 Expresscard adapter but it did not come with any Mac drivers. I have a 17" MacBook Pro running Mountain Lion. The card does not work when I plug it in and most likely will require a driver. I have been looking around the net and have tried the CalDigit Driver but this did not work. A lot of the info is for hackintosh systems. Can anyone help with a driver to run this on my MacBook Pro?

Here's the link for the USB 3.0 expresscard I have:

PSG90414 - PRO SIGNAL - EXPRESSCARD, 2 PORT USB3.0 | CPC

Sounds like you should really have purchased a Sonnet card. Dearer of course but Sonnet being Mac specialist drivers are available. Download theirs as a last resort and give it a try. Specs do say XP/Vista/7 only.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
