Am running Snow Leopard on Mac Pro (mega ram), and am trying to connect EX3 with FCP 7
Downloaded XDCAM Transfer version 2.10, but it says I need a XDCAM Drive software.
Why didn't that come with the download?
Anyway, do you have a direct URL link where I can download this driver and which one?
If you're transferring recorded files you should be using USB or Sony's Express card reader to USB.
XDCAM Transfer should be version 2.12 and ClipBrowser 2.6. Always copy using ClipBrowser with CRC on. You shouldn't need the driver unless you're using Express port on MacBookPro (or Windows equivalent).
I'm presuming that you are looking at XDCAM Transfer's 'Installed Components' window. This tells you what you need for *absolutely everything* to work. If you click on an item in the list, XDCAM Transfer tells you what its for below.
You don't necessarily need to install everything in that list; you only need the XDCAM Drive software if you are using a PDW-U1.
