Express Card slot

Brought a new hp laptop with express card slot loaded the driver for the sxs card, stuck the card in and well uh nothing.
Looked in device manager no memory technology card installed.
Add new hardware manually, located the sxs card driver in drop down box loaded the driver and the dreaded blue screen appears.
Removed driver but can use card slot. Anyone else had this problem

thanks

Nope. Worked perfectly for me, first time, on an Acer laptop.

Jason,

What you're describing happened to me as well, but only with the PCIe-> ExpressCard adapter I installed in my PC; my laptop's ExpressCard reader can see SxS cards without problems.

But you could try to make yours see it as well by cold-booting the laptop with a card in the reader - it works for me with the PC. Once booted this way, it will see any new SxS card inserted (though I need to use Device Manager to "mount" and "unmount" the device each time between swapping the cards).

Installing new hardware by pointing to the Sony SxS driver always leads to BSOD, and shouldn't be used.

I installed the SxS driver on my Dell laptop (running XP) with no problems. The computer recognizes the cards and I don't have to mount the devices. I do unmount the device out of caution, but haven't had any problems when I forget.

if shooting HDV, we can use the firewire right? Only in HQ that we need to unload manually via the expresscard slot. For a PC, I will need to buy an expresscard adapter, rite?

Ok, I looked thru the expresscard readers but I'm confused what works.. seems that some use the PCI-e while some can use USB2.0. I would suspect the former works only due to the high data rate requirements. Can someone confirm which brand works? The Sony card reader costs quite a bomb now!

Sean,

Both work, with the PCIe version being several times faster (sic), but also trickier in that it's not "quite" hot-swapable (search elsewhere in this forum - myself and others did comment on this in several threads).

Wow thks for the quick reply! The prob is my desktop is out of reach. I think a desktop access is better. Looking for alternatives like esata to expresscard now.
