P2 Software not supported by intel Mac
Posted 13 August 2007 - 04:08 PM
2.4g Macbook Pro w/ Intel Duo Core Processor
16G P2 Card
PCMCIA to ExpressCard Addaptor
Here's the problem. I tried to install the P2 software onto my computer, but there is a notice saying the software is not supported by my Intel Mac. I know there is a Panasonic support page where you can download updates, but I'm having some trouble navigating my way through the site. If anyone can shed some light on my problem or direct me to the page within the Panasonic web-site where I can download the driver software I need, it would be very much appreciated.

For anyone who might be interested I came accross this handy tutorial:
He copies the files from the P2 card to an external drive to make a "master"....straightforward enough. Then to ingest the files to FCP he uses the external as the volume (rather than transfering the files directly from the P2 into FCP).
I plan to use two external drives during my shoot, External A for copying footage from the P2, thus creating a Master, and then a second external (External B ) to store the Quicktime files after ingesting footage via FCP. Because I only have one firewire port on my Macbook, am I limited to first creating "Master" files on External A, unplugging it, then plugging in External B for ingest into FCP (so that I'm always connected via firewire) or is it possible/safe to have one external hooked up via firewire and the other via USB?
Also, when my External A eventually fills up (200g) am I able to write the "Master" files to disk for permant back-up/storage, or do I have to keep buying external drive after external drive to ensure I always have a back-up of my native mxf files? (seems like that would get expensive real fast).

Or is there one more possibility i'm not aware of?
I will capture to two 500GB external hard drives.
