The short answer is tha yes, a driver is needed, and no, the 4.1.3 one will
NOT work. Most recommended the Artecon driver, but I don't know if the s/w is
available separately. I'm still chasing the local Artecon rep.

One repsondent reported using the standard 2.4 sd driver, but I assume this
was not in replacable-media mode.

Thanks to all.
