PXW X160 Restore Media Issue
on Oct 11, 2016 at 3:17:30 pm

Hello,

I have a problem with my PXW x160.

When I wanted to import the files recorded today on a 64 GB Sony SxS Card to my Macbook, the card in Slot B didn´t show up in the finder on my computer. I then activated the Write Protect switch, in order to protect the files. Then the camera said the media on the card had to be restored. I started the restore-process (after enabling WP) but now it has been restoring fopr more three hours and is still going. Is it normal for a restore process to take that long? Or should I abort the process and do sth else?
The Card is a Sony 64GB SxS Card, with about 80 minutes of 130 available shot.

I am really forward for help because I need this footage.
Best regards
Michael

Hi Michael,

You didn't say if this is first card you tried to read on this mac ?

Do you have the card formatted as UDF? Did you know about the UDF driver for mac?

In theory, at least, Sony can recover data on an SxS card. It is probably not cheap but worth a try if nothing else you have tried will work.

good luck

Hello,

I have imported from this card to the Mac before and had always formatted the card in the camera.

I found a solution to my problem. After 4 hours of "Restoring" I switched of the power of the camera. Afterwards I was able to copy the files in question from the card to the Mac (import via XDCAM Transfer didn´t work though.) I have then formatted the card and now it is working again.

Thanks for your help.

Michael

glad that all worked out.

I just noticed the X160 does not support UDF anyway, so forget the driver unless you have other PMW cameras.
