    Same thing here - never need to reboot my Windows ... I just eject my P2 card from the reader - and plug in a new one - and it will see the new P2 card. No problems at all.

    It might not be the same as SxS cards - but, I doubt it is that much different as far as Windows go.

    As far as P2 card prices go - they are in the same legion as SxS - super expensive. I am also waiting for 64GB P2 cards to come out - and see if 32GB prices drop OR (if I am right) - the 64GB will be the same price as 32GB P2 cards !!!

    I don't need to reboot to see a new card.

    I just tell the browser section seeing the card reader to "go up one level" out of the card reader, change cards, then reselect the card reader drive and "hey presto", it brings up the new card files.

    Might work for you too Ronnie.

    Cheers Vaughan

    Welcome to the highly addictive world of P2 / SxS card .... once you see the ease AND speed that a direct access memory card can do to your workflow - you understand why I never go back to tape (and capture) again !!!
    Yes there is a read only switch on the SXS card and I was careful to switch it before putting the card in the computer. One thing I have noticed is that you cannot hot swap the cards. Or at least when I tried it would not see the second card. I had to boot down remove the card then insert the second card and all was well. It still took only just slightly more than 4 minutes to copy the whole 16 gig card. Normally it would have taken a whole day.

    I keep waiting for some one to come out with a cheaper card possibly 32 gigs.

    Thanks for your reply

    you have to make sure the directory with the files is called "BPAV", just like P2 needs a folder with "contents" and "lastclip.txt" in it.

    Thanks Steve: I did not have the document.... I am printing it off now....

    I was amazed that it only took a little more than 4 minutes to copy a complete 16gig card to the hard drive. That sure will save me some time in future projects.

    Having never used a solid state camera before, I am just paranoid about the
    ability of deleting the clips from the SXS card by accident. Now that I have them on the hard drive I feel much better.

    What is so neat in Edius is to drag 16gigs of video into the bin and then put them all on the time line with one click. I usually edit from the timeline rather than from the clip window.

    Thanks for the tip on the document

    Thanks I figured it out in the meantime. I want to edit from my HD not from the SXS card. Should I copy from the card to the HD first then open the folder to get them in to Edius?

    This is my first project where the whole project is shot with the EX and I guess I am nervous about dumping the clips off the SXS card by mistake.

    I need to take the safest way.

    What I will be doing in the future where I have a two day shoot is to down load the files off the card to a hard drive, clear the SXS card so that I can shoot the next day. I have two 16 gig cards (ouch expensive) and two 8 gig cards. Sometimes on one of these projects I have as much as 5 hours of footage. I need to dump the clips so that I can use the cards again the next day

    Thanks
    Ronnie

    Oh I forgot, if you want to edit directly off your SxS card reader,
    1. Open toolbox in bin window, open clipbrowser.
    2. Navigate clipbrowser to see the files on your SxS card.
    3. From clipbrowser, drag these clips into your bin window.

    Ronnie,
    Since you already have your clips copied to your drive,
    1. Open the toolbox on the top right of your bin window. You'll see clipbrowser there.
    2. Open clipbrowser, then point it to the BPAV folder on your hard drive. All of your clips will then open in this window.
    3. Drag your clips from the clipbrowser window into your bin.

    Happy editing!

    Importing EX-1 files into 4.6 Broadcast

    I guess I have had another dumb attack but I thought that we would be able to import the files from the Sony Ex direct into 4.6 broadcast.

    I have a card reader installed in my desk top and can see the files from my latest project. I copied them from the EX card into a folder in my project but still can't get them to open.

    It has got to be something simple I am missing..... Do I still have to open them in the sony EX broswer then convert them?

    If you have a way to get from the EX card to the Edius bin please post it for me.

    Thanks

    Ronnie
