SanDisk Extreme IV Firewire reader and Apple Macs running Snow Leopard

Hi I am running OSX 10.6.6 on a MacBook Pro (2.4GHz IC2D 4 GB RAM) and an iMac (2.8GHz IC2D 4 GB RAM).

 

I have tried FW 400 and 800 directly onto both computers and the cards (Sandisk Extreme III 2.0 & 4.0GB) won't mount.

 

System profiler shows the card reader attached to the Firewire bus.

 

Can anyone confirm that Snow Leopard is compatible with this product? If so what do I need to do to get it to work.

 

Regards

Hi drlucky.

 

It has worked with earlier versions of the OS. I just tried it again recently with no luck. Is there any way to test the reader?

 

Regards

Re: SanDisk Extreme IV Firewire reader and Apple Macs running Snow Leopard

I have the same problem.  I've been trying to fix it for over a year with no luck.  Reader worked great for over 2 years, Upgraded to Snow Leopard and boom... it doesn't work.  I've downloaded the "fix" from sandisk, but it just crashes every time I try to run it (downloaded mulitple times to ensure a good download).   Little to no support from Sandisk about this problem, and I'm done using their readers.  I now use slower USB readers from other manufactures.  I don't know what else to do.
