    I just got a HP SAS Expander that I hooked up to my Areca 1880 card.

    The Areca doesn't see the drives connected to the HP SAS Expander. The HP SAS Expander is running firmware 1.0... could this be the problem? (I.e. do I need to get it up to 2.10 or so?), or do I have another issue somewhere?

    Pretty certain you need to get it to at least 1.52. Preferably 2.06 or newer.
