I have a Mac Powerbook G4 and was just wondering if I can just drag my clips from the card to the hard drive? I want to be able to use my laptop kinda like a firestore. I have a mac pro that has my final cut and everything on it, so I would just transfer clips from the laptop to the desktop. Will this work? Does anyone do that?

yes, just make sure you transfer the entire folder.

if you want to name each batch of clips, make a new folder, name it what you want and drag the entire contents of sxs card into that.

if there is a folder on the card that says SONY, then you have also stored your camera data/profiles too, you can then drag that back to a card. put the card in the camera and then restore those particular settings to the camera. (it's a great way to keep track of looks...)

you'll also need to download the final cut clip transfer program for final cut, if that's what you are using.

if you are using Vegas or anything else that needs MXF files, you can't do this procedure. you have to capture with the clip browser while the card is still in the computer...
