App for naming P2 cards?
on Aug 26, 2008 at 7:28:20 am

I have realized I cannot work with NO NAME cards when offloading or importing to FCP.

I read Shanes blog about P2 offload, but since I already have HD Log Bronze, is there any free app that can name the cards for me? Of course I know that if the card is formatted in the camera (you shold not format it elsewhere) the name is lost.

Panasonic makes one...called the P2 Formatter. You use that to erase cards and name them. Found at the usual SixBullets site:

I second P2Formatter. Shotput_p2 edition will do it as well. How do you usually connect your P2 cards?

Via FireWire from the 500 to my G4 Dual or iBook G4.

Tried USB, but with no luck.

Thank God I still have our main editing Mac running Tiger, since the P2Formatter does not support write under Leopard.

(Now I only have to collect the strength to format the cards - we've done our first shoot and the content is offloaded onto two disks with HD Log and also brought into FCP. Works like a charm.)

But when you are used to keep those Betas, it is not easy to erase the cards... oh, well. :-)

Strange. Panasonic write this:

P2 Driver Software for Mac

Notice
When using Mac OS X Leopard
Not support write and delete of contents data to P2 card now.

as of 2008.1.29


But perhaps I'm misunderstanding something here?

I don't know. When I use the PCD20 it just works.
