Anyone know if the 2.0 version firmware for Sony PDW F70/F30 will fix the FAM mounting on Lion issue?
Our gear is at version 1.98 firmware and lived on Snow Leopard for a few years.
Just tried to format a 4GB Sony Memory Stick and Im getting Incomplete format errors.
Now I have to find a different stick maybe smaller.
Any tips please :)

FAM 2.3.2 should work with Lion. It's advisable that you upgrade but there are no specific patches for FAM under 10.7; usually FAM support is addressed in the device drivers, not the firmware.

Thanks Ian. I downloaded what I believe is the latest FAM software from Sony.
I even installed XDCAM Browser and still no go.
Is FAM 2.3.2 from the original XDCAM Transfer install?

Cant seem to find FAM 2.3.2 as a standalone installer anywhere.
Ive installed everything I can find that pertains to XDCAM and still nothing.

Thanks again Ian for getting me going with this :)

I seem to be stuck at FAM 2.1.0d3 according to Apple Software Manager.
Ive tried installing everything from XDCAM Transfer, Browser and even Drive.
I think I have the latest in everything concerning XDCAM installed.
Still no mounting :(

I think I found the FAM 2.3.2 hidden in the SXS section.
Crossing fingers :)
