    Any updates on new P2 drivers from Panasonic? Or is there another way to get P2 cards to mount when using 10.7?

    I heard from a Panasonic tech that the current drivers ARE compatible with Lion, except if you’re using the PCD20 via Firewire.

    That’s the official word, have you encountered something different?

    Ah. Of course, I happen to be using a PCD20 with FireWire. At least I have some direction now.

    Jason, with the PCD20, Firewire 800 is no faster than USB 2. I’ve done tests. The bad news is: you can ask Panasonic why they advertise faster speeds with Firewire 800, when the device never achieves them. The good news is you can switch to USB 2, and hopefully mount your P2 cards in Lion, *and* lose no speed.
