    Hello all!

    I have an IOCrest card (I/O Crest 8 Port SATA III PCIe 2.0 x2 Non RAID Controller Card) and it's recently started dropping the drives attached to it when I copy data to or from one of the drives connected to it (non-RAID).

    Can cards like this just start to go bad in this manner?

    Thanks!
    ===================

    The Hardware ID is VEN_1B4B&DEV9235 and I'm using the current 92xx drivers.

    PCI Express x2 interface max 4 Sata III ports, guess thats the problem.

    Not sure why those are relevant - there are plenty of 8 port cards out there.

    My question still remains unanswered - can a card or a port on a card just "go bad" ?

    The answer is yes HW can go bad best way is to swap it out with another card or test that one in another machine to see if it fails.
