SxS Card Insertion Demands Restarting Laptop
on Jan 19, 2011 at 5:10:09 pm

I recently upgraded my Mac Pro laptop 2.53 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo to OS 10.6.6. I use this laptop to ingest my SxS cards through XDCam Clip Browser, and updated it to Clip Browser 2.06.00. Well, I can't even get that far. My problem is that as soon as I click in an SxS card, any of the many I have, a 50% black curtain descends from above and a warning saying "You need to restart your computer. Hold down the Power button until it turns off, then press the Power button again." Interestingly I took the cards over to my friend's laptop and they are read in his machine just fine. Also I ran DiscWarrior on the laptop just in case. Does anyone have any ideas what might be going on? Could it be a problem with the SxS card reader in the computer?

Uninstall the SxS driver.
Reinstall current version from here.

So that worked. I appreciate it. However now XDCam Transfer is not allowing me to see the clip thumbnails. I get an Error message: "The clip could not be saved to the cache as it was an unrecognised format." I'm using 2.9.0 XDCam Transfer. Is there a newer version and do you know where I can find it? This is the first time I have used these since I upgraded the system to 10.6. It seems to be importing though.

you just need to upgrade XDCAM Transfer to 2.12 for Snow Leopard compatibility. the thumbnail errors are normal for versions <2.12 and OS 10.6.

You're getting a system 'kernel panic' because you have the wrong version of the driver installed. Install v 1.05 of the SxS device driver, which you can find here: https://www.servicesplus.sel.sony.com/sony-software-model-SXSDRIVERS.aspx

Use the supplied uninstaller to remove the old one first..

Worked like a charm. Thanks. I haven't dealt with a kernel problem in some time, and forgot that this is what it looked like.

This is part of the reason, I haven't updated my system software on my Mac in 2 years. I have so many plugin's, etc. that would have to be updated. I almost want to just go out a buy a new computer before I update. I don't have the patient's anymore, and everything is running so smoothly, why mess with a good thing.

Not updating can have its downside as some new programs require updates.
