If you haven’t yet upgraded to Snow Leopard on your MacBook Pro then you may not have heard about the problems with SxS cards. After installing the new OS, any SxS card inserted into a ExpressCard/34 slot would cause immediate kernel panic. That is when you insert an SxS card the screen goes black and you have to restart. Not a good thing for EX1 & EX3 owners for sure. But the good news is that Sony got on the ball and released a new version of their SxS drivers that fixes the problem. I tested out the latest drivers on my MacBook Pro – running Snow Leopard 10.6.1 (released over the weekend) – and everything is working again. So cheers to Sony and here is a link to the download site – SxS Driver 1.045.
