Mountain Lion & SxS cards?

I've heard that the Sony SBACUS10 SxS Card Reader doesn't work with Mountain Lion.
Is this true?
What about Log & Transfer or XDCAM Browser?
Thanks

Re: Mountain Lion & SxS cards?

Why would you want to use Mountain Lion? I always stick with the OS that works for my workflow. In my case: Snow Leopard with FCP7 and XDCAM browser. I have never understood the necessity to change OS, unless there are major advantages in the upgrade...

Until the new versions of your software dont work with your old OS.. I think your riding for a fall here.. it works both ways..

Re: Mountain Lion & SxS cards?

I was happy to stick with snow Leopard, but Apple repair dropped my and ruined my trusty 2009 MBP with expresscard slot. They are comping me a new MPB which is way more powerful than my old machine but driving me nuts trying to set up with my peripherals ( i.e. can't use my Matrox MXO anymore for color correction, esata drives a PITA etc.)

Anecdotally I've heard from a few people that the USB card reader won't work either which would be another PITA.
I can get a thunderbolt to Expresscard adapter but its an end of line device on Thunderbolt so what about monitoring etc etc etc etc.

I am coming up with solutions, but It would simplify life if the SBACUS10 worked on the new machine. I would like to get everything set up before I get it so I don't end up with jobs I can't download cards on.

So my simple questions remains out there - does anyone know if the SBACUS10 works on Mountain Lion?


BTW - You can't use XDCAM Browser to make MOV files for FCP can you?

Dave,
Thanks, but how do you get XDCAM Browser to make MOV files?
I must be missing something obvious.

- Never mind, just opened the manual and found it under clip menu . Thanks

No problem Leonard. Glad you found it. They do a good job of hiding that little "export to FCP", don't they? ;)

Yes , I looked a number of times earlier and its deep in the manual also. It doesn't look like you can rename the clip like you can in log & transfer though. Thanks
