Being a writer myself, I know what you mean.
Nevertheless, best luck,

It has been noted several times on this board. The SSD DOES NOT work.

Just curious: which version of the Sandisk card- Ultra II or Extreme III?

With the apparent demise of the Kensington 7 in 1 (no confirmation yet from Kensington PR but Kensington customer service says discontinued), I did a last-ditch test today of other adapters.

I bought SIIg, i-dot-connect, and Delkin ExpressCard adapters today and gave each a try.

The good news-- The SIIG fits in the EX-1 and allows closing the door.

The bad news-- neither the EX-1 nor the EX-3 would recognize any of these cards. No problem recognizing Kensington.

I anxiously await a report on the Chinese cards on eBay. Hopefully they will work. But I still wouldn't feed them to dog or baby.

Ned, I just learnt that SIIG does offer various different Expresscard adapters. USB and PCIe-based ones.
Please post the item number of your card, just to exclude that SIIG adapters don't work at all.

I'm using both.
The new 30MB/s Exteme III & the Ultra II 15MB/s

And just to be clear, I meant to write almost three months, not four.

Good catch, Peter

The model number on the card is 02-0393A and part number after sn is CE-E01012-S1

Interestingly, the card I bought was labeled ExpressCard 11-in-1

The SIIG website shows this card labeled 12-in-1 but with identical part number.

It is definitely worth trying the 12-in-1, Will look for one.

Just in case a few of you missed Ross Herwini's post re another card adapter that works, here's a link.
http://cgi.ebay.com/Laptop-ExpressCa...742.m153.l1262

I originally ordered 2 of these as I couldn't get the Kensington's here in OZ.
I have had no problems other than not being able to fully close the door on my EX3 but a tab of velcro basically does the same thing and the door "looks" closed.
The other bonus is they are dirt cheap!

cheers, Evan

ps, overcrank I get about 50 frames before an error

Sony wants to make money off the media. Camcorders have always been devices to sell tape. As an EX1 owner, though, I am miffed that there is zero value added at a significant price increase in the ExpressCard format considering ClipBrowser must be involved for conversion for AVID and WinXP Sony Vegas users. I'm pleasantly surprised that Sony doesn't charge for ClipBrowser.

The message is that once solid state cards get below a certain price, users can treat them like tape for archive purposes, or at least keep the rushes on them for a few weeks until a project is completed. Hence, instead of selling a couple of SxS cards per user, SDHC cards may get sold in similar quantities to tape in the past - money is still being made from media.

The message is do Sony make to want one lot of profit of (say) $100 on two cards at the initial camera sale, or make $5 here, $5 next week etc as users keep on buying cheaper cards?

The message must also be that whilst SDHC is working now, there must be a certain unease that future cards won't be compatible - I would feel happier using a Sony certified system. So please, please, Mr Sony, introduce an ExpressCard that fits natively into an EX, is comparable in price to the SDHC cards that are being used, with comparable performance, and then you may find that these media profits go directly to you instead of Sandisk or Transcend. You'll also find that it makes your cameras even more sellable compared to those of your rivals.

Hi Bob, that's good but the other adapters are way cheaper and do the same thing with the Sandisk 16gb 11's! (apart from maybe slightly longer)

Expanse has the Kensington at AU 82.99 (plus postage) which is okay] but the other brand cost me around AU52.00 including postage for 2! Although it took around 10 days to get. I have ordered another 2.
