Hello,
I hope you guys can help me in this. my macbook pro, osx 10.4.11, 2.4 Ghz intel core duo, 2Gb 667 MHz.
i tried to download the ss sony cards plugged into the slot, and nothing showed up on the screen, only a power off card option on the upper right corner next to the internet connection symbol. restart and still nothing. I note is that i used my mbp with successfull workflow with the panasonic P2 system. now, i cannot read the sony cards...any thoughts? thanks

I think you may need the SxS driver.

Besides not being able to get that link to work on the Sony site - it enters an infinite loop, the site states that the driver is no good for any macbook pro purchased after October 2008.
It states there will be a new driver issued in December 2008 but I cannot find that driver - has it bee issued?

[Paul Burgess] "It states there will be a new driver issued in December 2008 but I cannot find that driver - has it bee issued?"

Yes it has. It's available at the Canada Sony web site. Below the Mac version of the SxS Pro driver it clearly states that: "The new Macbook Pro released after October 2008 is supported."

Here you go:

Hi Jorge,

The following list contains the minimum requirements needed to edit native EX footage with Final Cut Pro:

Mac OS v.10.4.11
Quicktime Pro v.7.3.1
Final Cut Pro v.6.0.2 (part of Final Cut Studio 2)
Sony Clip Browser v.1.0 - not required to import and edit in FCP but still important to have.
Sony Transfer Tool v.2.1 and/or Sony's Log and Transfer plugin for FCP.
Sony FAM driver - this is what is needed for your Macbook Pro to recognize an SxS Pro memory card as an attached device and have it appear on your desktop.
