Mac OS 10.14.1 Mojave not able to read SxS cards
on Oct 18, 2019 at 3:28:18 am

I just got a new PowerBook Pro with OS 10.14.1 Mojave with a Blackjet TX-15 SxS card reader. I've installed the drivers yet I cannot read these SxS cards, in fact they don't even show up on the desktop. Does anyone know a solution. I tried downloading the very driver Blackjet links to on the Sony site to no avail. Help, if you know how to solution this! And thanks!

someone else complained about SxS support on Mac recently.

I formatted my SxS-1 cards to UDF some years ago. I did have to upgrade both drivers, there is an additional UDF driver.
Which SxS cards do you have ? What format are they in?

I format these cards in my EX1 and EX3 cameras mostly. Otherwise after I ingest I simply erase the cards. I can't even seem to get this device to work in OS 10.11.6 El Capitan.

Hi,
do you get a choice of FAT or UDF on the EX series (for formating the SxS) ?

I know this doesn't help but it may give you an option if things get urgent. I use the SBAC-US20 with 32GB SxS-1 formatted as UDF. I have a 2015 MacBook Pro with the very latest (Catalina) OS and it works very well. Of course that's a USB connection.

So the problem is probably not the SxS cards but the mix of technologies after that.

I will call this Blackjet company Monday and see if their is anything about their device I can do, otherwise I will go with the SBAC-US20.
