OS X SAT SMART Driver

    John in MGG 394 talked about is driver and having 3 external drives I thought this would be perfect. I downloaded the .dmg file and opened Disk Utility and it froze. Tried rebooting and system only got to the chime no Apple logo. Had to boot into repair mode to repair disk after doing the recommended uninstall.
    Has anyone else tried this driver? Am I doing something wrong, or does it just not work on 2007 iMac with all uodates on the latest Lion.

    The just updated the version to 0.5 a couple of days ago, perhaps give that a shot and see if it works.  I works on my MacBook Pro Early 2008 running Lion, so perhaps there’s an issue with earlier machines.  You may wan to stop by the developers page and give them info about your configuration, they do indicate that some updates provided support for additional external enclosures, perhaps yours is one that they don’t yet work with.
