MacBook Pro ExpressCard reports page updated:
Updated the page of MacBook Pro owner reports on Express34 Cards with notes from a 2010 MacBook Pro owner on his (natively supported) eSATA Expresscard not working after upgrading to OS X 10.9 Mavericks. I had added a note (and link) about this to the page last fall when this problem was first reported shortly after OS X Mavericks was released. (Notes/Tests from Firmtek and some 2010 MacBook Pro owner posts in Oct. 31st, 2013 news, including link to a post with info on how one user copied the IOPCIFamily.kext from OS X mountain lion. Later posts in that thread have more recent notes and tips.)
   Firmtek had said 2009 and 2011 models were not affected although after a major OS X upgrade often a driver reinstall is required if the card isn't natively supported. (For instance SI3132 SATA card drivers in the past were removed during a major OS X upgrade install.)
