Thanks Marek, not too worried about hot swap on Mac, I’m pretty much PC editing these days, but can it be used externally via USB only? It looks like it needs a PCIE slot on a desktop. I don’t need PCI speeds, just compatibility. Do you use it with Sony SxS cards as well as SD adapters? If do you know up to what capacity SxS?
Many thanks for your help

Hi Alan, Yes, you are correct, the reader which we have on our website, is designed to be hardwired internally to a PC or Mac. It cannot be used as a stand alone device connected to a USB port. Yes you can use Sony SXS and MXM adapters.
I think your only alternative is Sony USB reader.. if speed isn’t a problem.. I think they still sell the USB2 unit which is cheaper.. or try Sonnet express card reader.. its much cheaper but is TB .. so actually pretty fast.. !
Or just plug the camera directly into your PC by USB..
