I've been on Panasonic's case for a single card reader for since I got my hvx, over two years ago.

My Duel Adapter stopped working long ago (about a year I think) with my MBP (2.33GHz 2gb RAM, FCP 5.1.4, P2CMS etc) & 8gb cards.

I never used FCP or P2CMS for import - just wanted to dump the raw footage from the cards to clients' drives.

Chris, the situation Dan has mentioned regarding conflicts between Duels' drivers, Mac OS 10.5 & Panny's drivers has been going on for some time. When I first had trouble Duel customer service had me uninstall latest Panny drivers and put in older ones - that f%3ed up everything (even Safari!) and I've had two useless Duel Adapters since (I got an older PB on ebay and use it with Shotput very happily).

Bottom line:

Panasonic has a line of cameras somewhat dependent on a workflow with Apples latest laptops but cares not that their customers languish.

Duel has a line of Adapters with serious driver issues and doesn't feel like working anymore with Apples' OS.

Apple has bigger fish to fry than worrying about some small company's (Duel) driver issues not upgrading well with their plans to upgrade their OS (whoa - they upgrade software?! who knew?).

Not happy with any of these companies performance on this issue!
