There's no difference in performance between the two cards. The difference is in the longevity.

Thanks Don

Thats what I thought.. but saw a video review that was a bit unclear..and seemed to say Sony recommend only the pro version for over crank /under crank.. it may have been referring to SD cards being used in an adaptor..

Yeah, the SXS Pro uses single level cell technology and is good for 100,000 cycles. The orange SXS1 card uses double level cell tech. It sounds like it should be a better solution but it's not. These cards are good for 10,000 cycles. Still a lot of cycles in anyone's book.

Double level cell technology, because of what the name implies would suggest that it's better quality, but this isn't the case. Single level cell in flash media lasts far longer.

-No difference in performance between pro/-1 cards. As has been noted the difference is the lifespan and memory type.

-Digital Ext works in UDF mode

Hi Ian

Ok thanks.. Iam sure I read in the manual that digital ext dint work in 1080 mode ? is that not right.

Also sorry another question.. after I had down loaded the SXS drives,and UDF driver.. at a test today of the hoped improved down load times.. the 64GB pro cards wouldnt mount on my desk top.. they have done before (but with the slow down load) 32GB cards were fine.
After changing card readers ,cards and cables.. and trying another computer.. an older MBP with older software.. which worked fine.. it does seem for some reason that my computer is at fault.
I re down loaded the drives. but no cigar..
Short of just binning this one and buying a new one tomorrow .. any idea what could be going on here.. doesnt seem to follow any logic.. they mount without the drives.. with the drives they dont mount.. but 32 does.. all software up to date and installed ok.. rental place had never seen this problem.. or Sony support on the phone.. I dont want to say.. why me.. but it does look that way :)

Thanks
