Disks not mounting after initialize "The disk you attached was not readable by this computer"

Hey there,

I've just bought a Thunderbay 4 and installed 4 Samsung 4gb SSDs with the intention of running a RAID5 on them. 

I went through the looong Certify-process of about 35hours with no errors. 

After that I selected all four drives and selected initialize. The minute they were intialized my mac announced "The disk you attached was not readable by this computer" four times..  Any idea how i proceed from there? 

I'm running all this on a MacBook Pro M1 Max with Monterey ..

Up till now i've restarted my computer. I've re-initialized the drives (with the same result) .. I tried setting up the RAID 5 drive, hoping that it was because it wasn't fully set up, that it wouldn't read the drives.

The drives show up on my disk utility - i'm assuming it's a SoftRaid issue?

I'd greatly appreciate any help you guys can give.. 

 

thanks

Henrik

Did you do this?

Select reduced security and enable this:
Select the “Allow user management of kernel extensions from identified developers” checkbox to allow installation of software that uses legacy kernel extensions.

When you did the driver update, did you go to System Preferences / Security to "Allow" OWC as an identified developer?

After enabling third party extensions, reinstall the SoftRAID driver, and go to System Preferences / Security to "Allow" OWC as an identified developer
