Issue Details

I just purchased a NI RAID array and need to install the drivers on my PXI controller. However, the included driver CD does not have the drivers that I need. Where can I find drivers for NI RAID arrays?

I can not see my NI RAID device in NI MAX or Windows Device Manager. What drivers do I need for this?
