    Default SxS Reading options

    Hello,

    Having joined the fray and bought an EX3 with some cards it was decided that the perfect accompaniment for this little camera would be a laptop with some editing software... Perfect, we thought. And, so as to free up the camera and remaining card we'd get a PCMCIA - ExpressCard adaptor in order to offload the information onto laptop for editing.

    Here's the rub. I can't get the laptop to read the SxS card. It works fine in the camera. According to various websites, the card would read fine in an ExpressCard slot with the sony driver.

    However, will it work in an ExpressCard adaptor in a PCMCIA port?
    And, if so, how?

    Any suggestions greatly appreciated,
    Cheers
    Richard

    Why are you using the sxs cards ?
    Your EX3 can use the cheap sdhc cards, 25 for 16gb, or 30 with a usb reader, no driver needed.
    Plug a sxs to sdhc adaptor into the cam, insert a cheap sdhc card, record on that then offload that card by just plugging the sdhc card into the cheap 5 usb reader, or if you pc has a built in sd card reader then just shove the card in that.
    I only use my sxs card for overcranking, and then i just copy the clip from the sxs to sdhc in the camera, ie from one slot to the other.
    I can't help you with the pcmcia-express card problem as i don't even use an express slot any more.

    Thanks for the reply Paul. I wasn't aware that SDHC could be used in the EX3.

    However, given that this is an extra transfer, and requires purchasing yet more cards, is there a way to work it with my current configuration since I already have all that gear?

    Cheers

    USB card readers might be cheap for an sdhc card but the original poster doesn't use sdhc cards, he uses sxs cards, the only usb reader for that is the sony reader, and that ain't incredibly cheap, 250 the last time i looked.
