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.
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.
