Naming the P2 cards - yes or no?

For a start we'll be using USB and HD Log to offload the clips to the backup and scratch disk (then edit in Final Cut Pro).

But from what I read, the cards shows up as "No name" in Mac. Could (and should) they be named and the name kept? If so, how?

They CAN be...but there is no reason for this. I have had issues with a renamed card not being recognized by the camera, so I reformatted and it went back to NO-NAME.

I offload cards one at a time...and name the cards ON THE CARD. If I need to, I can include the card name in the name of the dump folder so we can track issues like waht cards are acting up.

I've been using P2 Formatter on my MAC for a year now and no problems.

Sorry Shane, I don't follow... I tried the HD Log and it did it's own "renaming" of the four cards that showed when connecting the HPX500 to the computer: NO NAME, NO NAME 1, NO NAME 2, NO NAME 3... go figure. :-)

But I guess this does not really matter, as long as I always can reconnect my media (from the backup disk) with no worries. And BTW, if you offload one card at the time, all the cards will be NO NAME. How do you keep track of the footage?
