Another SXS card 'not working' question

I just got the newest version of the Macbook Pro 17" with the express card slot, downloaded the newest SXS driver from the Sony/Provideo site, restarted my computer, inserted the SXS card correctly, and it will not read or even show up on the desktop, nothing. I do get the "mass storage" icon in the top toolbar, but the only option available is to "Power off card". That's it. Any ideas? I would really appreciate some pointers here...

Does it show up in Disk Utility? Has it been formatted?

It does not show up in Disk Utility, but I have been using it from the camera for five months without any trouble, so I'm not sure what to do next.

Well, you can always offload using USB, between the camera and MBP.

Then reformat the card.

I am assuming other SxS cards work in your new MBP. If not then there is something wrong with your MBP driver installation.

I don't have any other SXS cards, just the two that I use in the camera. I've been downloading via USB from the camera, but I really need to be able to pull a card, like in the middle of a concert, and download footage, clear it, and reinstall before the other runs out of room. I'm heading for the Apple store tomorrow, I'll let you know what I find out...

I run 10.6.3 with no problem on my MBP.

The trans works very well.

Check that you have all the components installed. Link below.

See my screen shot, and compare it to your Transfer app report.
