Now, here's the workflow, and it works!

You need Tiger and FCP5 (for the MXF files). You shoot on P2 cards. Then you have to flip the protection button on the cards on protect (otherwise the cards won't show up as a hard disc on the computer). You have to set the camera via System settings (press the menue button on the camera for a few seconds, till the menue shows on the monitor attached to the camera) into USB on. Now connect the camera to the computer. The 5 cards mount as hard discs. Each disc contains a folder called content. These folders are copied on let's say a powerbook (more than 500 Mghz with OSx) For safety you copy the content on an external HD via Firewire. Check, whether all the folders with content are properly copied. Run FCP5 on the laptop and view one shot.
Disconnect the camera, switch off USB function (otherwise the camera won't record) Put the protect button on each P2 card on write, delete the content of the cards, and start shooting again.
