2011 MBP and Express 34 Sata Woes ?

2011 MBP and Express 34 Sata Woes ?

I'm using:

2011 2.3G 17" MBP
Sonnet express 34 Sata card.
Star Tech Dual 3.5/2.5 sata dock.
OSX 10.6.8
Pro Tools 9.0.5

When running a session from an external drive, the computer would freeze.

I copied to another drive an it SEEMS to now work fine.

Now I'm copying some data from a different external drive , the copy freezes and I have to reboot.

The weird thing is I've used these drives in my 2008 mac pro without a problem.

I've also tried a different sonnet sata card and a different dock (icy box) but would still get the same problem.

I've ordered some new drives and they're on their way, I've also made sure I've gort the latest drivers forthe sonnet card.

In the meantime:

Does anone know if there's something a bit unreliable when using a sata dock and express card with the 2011 MBPs ?

Or am I just unlucky with a couple of drives... I'd hate for this to be a creepng problem.
