I think this is still the link to the Sony software Sony : Sony Recording Unit/FCP 6 Plug-in : Autre
Let us know if it works for you.

Think I got mine from this one -

http://support.d-imaging.sony.co.jp/...dv/fcp_plugin/

The one on the sony biz site appears to be in French so I found the above as an alternative.

Cheers

Jon

I hope you've got it to work, but I'd highly highly highly HIGHLY recommend buying a Lexar FW 800 reader.

Lexar - Flash memory card readers - Pro CF Reader

it was night & day for transfering.

CF readers

I use the SanDisk Firewire 800 CF reader. In general card reader is better since it is less likely to have a power interruption (since it gets its power via the computer link). CF cards don't handle power interruptions during transfer very well. It is not unusual for them to become unusable if this occurs (and anything that was on them is lost).

I use that too mainly to save unhitching the CF recorder from the camera, its works great with clipwrap but still no joy with the sony plug in.
