Error during ingest using internal SD-Slot
« on: December 29, 2012, 06:54:07 AM »
Hi Kirk!

During the ingest from a SD-Card (Sandisk Extreme Pro, 8GB) using the built-in SD-Slot on my MacBook Pro, late 2011 I receive an errormessage:
Quote
Incremental Ingest: Unable to create or locate Ingest data file on /Volumes/EOS_DIGITAL.  Is this a read-only volume?  Incremental Ingest will not function for this volume.
Finished copying from volume "/Volumes/EOS_DIGITAL/".
Volume "/Volumes/EOS_DIGITAL/" has been unmounted and is safe to eject.

PM.log shows the following messages:

The SD-Card was formatted in the camera (Canon EOS 1D MK III) prior shooting. All images are ingested fine.
Ingesting the same card with the same images again using an external card reader works well without any errors. The same for the CF-Card used to save the same images as backup.

Using PM 5 Build 13507 (c69a93e) on OS X 10.8.2

Any ideas?

Sven,

Is there some setting in the System Preferences that controls whether the card can be written to or not when used in the internal card reader?  If PM can't write its .pmingest.dat file then Incremental Ingest cannot function.

Kirk,

looks like a HW-issue as I am not the only one and I have not used SD-Card for a long while now :)

Wow.  That's pretty amazing.

Well I guess you can either guess where to slide the write protect/lock switch on the card, or you can bend parts inside your MacBookPro!

:(
