I am using one of these cards in a SuperMicro case. I used a terminated cable
to connect the backplane and flashed the firmware to the latest version. It
has 5 Ultra 320 196G Cheetahs connected to it that have been working well for
just over a month now. I believe termination may be the cause of your
problems. The card appears to be working well for me (so far) and I wish you
luck with yours.

I could not get the Storage Manager software to work. I loaded the browser
edition listed for the Adaptec Serial ATA RAID 2810SA. I could then use the
command line software that came with the card. The following script compares
the output from the command to a known good output and emails me in case of
trouble (some lines may have wrapped).
