File Name: dskcd-qio-150.dmg
File Size: 2.7 MB
Description: This software enables the use of Qio with Mac Pro and MacBook Pro computers with a PCIe slot or ExpressCard slot, respectively, and other Mac computers connected via Thunderbolt.

Release Notes:
Version 1.5.0 includes an improved, signed uninstaller compatible with macOS 10.12 (Sierra).

Known Issues:
• When using Qio 1.5.0, you may need to start your computer from the shut down state in order for sleep to work properly.
• If you are updating your computer's Qio software from version 1.1.7 or earlier, and you intend to update its OS from OS X 10.7.5 or earlier to 10.8 or later, you MUST install Qio 1.5.x software before upgrading the OS! For more information, see this FAQ .
• Apple removed USB 2.0 over Thunderbolt support beginning in OS X 10.8.2. If you are using the Qio connected via Thunderbolt in 10.8.2+ and you need USB ExpressCard adapter support, then you need to install the USB 2.0 Over Thunderbolt Patch .
