    I recently bought the Sony PMW-EX1R camcorder which uses Sony SxS cards. After reading posts on various forums I decided to take a calculated risk and not purchase the expensive SxS cards but rather a MxR ExpressCard Reader from e-films that allows you to use common SDHC cards. Upon plugging the MxR and a SanDisk Extreme 16 GB Class 10 card into the camera for the first time, the camera gave me a message of “Cannot Use Media. Unsupported File System.” My camera’s firmware is up to date with version 1.20. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    HI Mike,
    Did you ever resolve your problem? I just bought a EX1r today and am trying to get the cameras to even see the MxR express card adaptor. I have a SDXC SD card in it, per a recommendation.

    Yes. Basic oversight on my part – I had not formatted my SDHC card. Although I had no problem formatting out of the camera’s “A” slot, several posters told me that formatting works better from the camera’s “B” slot.

    Thanks for the info. I got my 32 gig card working now as well.
