So Mac osx mountain lion has dropped the ability to be able to boot in 32bit mode.

This leaves P2 owners in the lurch as we have to use 32bit to see P2 cards on Mac.

Correct me if I'm wrong but Panasonic have written their card management for 64bit in win doze but not for Mac?? still??

I'm confused about this as well.

The way I understand it is that version 2.40 P2 Driver for OSX Lion will work with Panasonic's P2 readers, but not with a generic CardBus slot (f.ex. Sonnet QiO). USB volumes should mount without driver. If you have a generic CardBus slot you would need to boot in 32bit.

Not sure what this specifically has to do with the F-Series cards? Have they moved to ExFAT formatting? Since the new F-series are limited to 64GB I wouldn't think there would be a need. Not until Panasonic decides that they are serious about replacing the 2 hour video tape with a 2 hour P2 card.
