Sony PMW-200 extremely slow transfer rates
on Feb 8, 2015 at 12:04:34 pm

Hi. I am trying to transfer a 35GB file to my iMac with my PMW-200 connected with USB 2. This i s slow I know, but with this particular file it seems extremely slow. 1% of transfer takes like 10-15 minutes which would be 1000-1500 minutes för 100%.
It never has transfered this slow before.

Using the Catalyst Browse app from Sony and also tried with FCPX, same there.
Any ideas what it might be? Corrupt file? Corrupt card? Strange thing is that it does transfer, but really slow,

Now after almost 24 hours the transfer progress is 58% of 32 gigabyte. And also the Generating audio waveforms is showing progress.
Whats wrong?
It have never taken so long time before, but i need the camera in a couple of days so i cannot stop it now.
Its just like the transfer rate is super slow.
The camera is connected directly to the imac usb port and the imac is not used for anything else.

This is my setup:

PMW-200 connected via USB 2 to imac 2014 w 32gb ram and connected Thunderbolt 6tb drive
Yosemite 10.10.2
FCPX 10.1.3

I reinstalled the UDF drivers yesterday and reinstalled the sxs drivers

This is expected behavior when the SxS UDF driver is not installed or not working. Files transfer very slowly (anywhere from 5-10x slower than normal) and the card will display as read-only with 0 bytes free. Uninstall both drivers (you only need the device driver when using an PCI SxS slot or Thunderbolt card reader) and reinstall only the latest UDF driver with Yosemite support from http://www.sonycreativesoftware.com/sxsudfdriver. Please let us know if this remedies the issue.

Hi Ian and thanks for your answer. Do you happen to know where on a mac file system do i find the old drivers and uninstall/delete them? I guess in Library somewhere, but where and what do i have to delete?
Thanks for helping

Hi. I found them and if someone else reads this thread they are found under:
/System/Library/ Extensions

And instructions what to uninstall I found here, from Sonnettech, but still useful:
