496 Qio System Installer and Uninstaller (OS X, macOS) 1.5.0Nov-29-2016
Operating System Requirements: Mac OS X 10.6.8+, macOS 10.12.6+
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. In addition to drivers to support Qio and its SATA controller, this installer installs drivers for supported memory card media. Supports OS X 10.6.8-10.11; macOS 10.12 (Sierra).

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 .

710 Sony SxS UDF Driver for macOS 2.4.02018-02-01
725 USB 2.0 Over Thunderbolt Patch for Qio/Qio E3 1.1Jun-17-2013
Operating System Requirements: Mac OS X 10.8.5+
File Name: dskcd-usbtbml-11.dmg
File Size: 35.5 KB
Description: This patch restores USB 2.0 functionality through Thunderbolt under OS X 10.8.5 and 10.9.5 for Qio and Qio E3 users.

Notes:
Qio and Qio E3 support USB 2.0 through the ExpressCard (SxS) slots' USB interfaces. With the release of OS X 10.8.2, Apple disabled USB 2.0 drivers over Thunderbolt. This patch removes that limitation so that USB 2.0 will work through Thunderbolt. This will affect you only if you are connecting your Qio or Qio E3 through an Echo ExpressCard Thunderbolt adapter or Echo Express Expansion Chassis for PCIe Cards. (Beginning with OS X 10.10, Apple no longer permitted driver patches.)

This patch will only run on 10.8.5 and 10.9.5, and you should download this under the following conditions:
1) You have a Qio or Qio E3
2) You are connecting the Qio over Thunderbolt (or will do so in the future)
3) You need USB 2.0 support over the Qio. For example, if you need to use a multi-format memory card reader like the one included with the Qio, you need USB 2.0 support.
