Help with mac reading FS5 SD cards

I know this is got to be something simple but my computer Mac Pro OS 10.10.5 Yosemite and FCPX, won't read the sd card out of a Fs5. I just get the error "The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer. I went to sonys site and found what I thought would be a plug in (xavc xdcam camera import plug-in) and installed that but the computer still didn't read the SD card. And when I opened FCPX it gave me a plug in warning. I also tried to get the SD card to read on my iMac and my laptop, same warning, Any help would be appreciated.

thanks

Re: Help with mac reading FS5 SD cards

Do you have XAVC and AVCHD on the same card? Mine plugged right in and showed up in FCPX. I don't even think I formatted it from using it before in another camera.

Re: Help with mac reading FS5 SD cards

Nope just the 1080/30p 50mbps, xavc, The SD cards are SDXC 64gb, class 10 u3, and not one of my macs will mount the drive. I thought it was the way the camera was formatting the card but now Im not sure. I am wondering if it is the card itself, but I don't have any other SD cards that will work in the FS5. I just got the camera today and was starting test with the picture profiles, seeing if I can match a 5d and a XF300 to the sony but I can't get the darn cards to mount. I have tried two different cards, reformatted them just put one clip on there but same thing no matter what. I can't find a driver from apple or sony, so I am stuck.

Ok so I don't have any reasons but I switched SD card readers and now all is good.
