||My P2 card is unexpectedly unmounting from my Qio after I wake a Mac Pro or MacBook Pro from sleep.||Aug-01-13|
||I get a blue screen on my Mac Pro/MacBook Pro instead of booting when I connect Qio||Mar-24-10|
||Are all C600X CF Cards more or less equal performance in a Qio?||Mar-22-10|
||Can I power the Qio from a FireWire port on a MacBook Pro?||Mar-23-10|
||Is the Qio driver compatible with a 64-bit kernel boot of OS X 10.6 or 10.7?||Aug-01-13|
||Can I use the AJA IO Express with the Sonnet Qio in a MacBook Pro?||Mar-23-10|
||My Qio was working fine with my ExpressCard/34 bus interface card, but the Qio does not work with my PCIe Express bus interface card in an early 2009 MacPro.||Mar-31-10|
||My unibody MacBook Pro will spontaneously restart after shutdown with Qio attached.||Mar-31-10|
|Check the bottom of the Qio for the serial number.|
This can occur on some Qio units with a serial number begins with A, B, or C. Contact Sonnet support for more information.
||What kind of battery can I use with the Qio?||Apr-08-10|
|A battery should be capable of providing 12Volts @ 3 Amps and have an XLR 4-pin power connector. Nominal power usage of Qio is 9W, and attached F2s are 8 Watts each. An example of a compatible battery is the Bescor MM7XLR-NC (BC-500 charger sold separately) that can provide 12Volts @ 7.2Amps and has a 50 Watt-hour capacity. This battery could power a Qio for 5.5 hours, or a Qio plus F2 for 3 hours.|
||Why does my Maci take so long to boot when the Qio is attached?
||Why can't a Mac Pro acknowledge the Qio if it is plugged in after the Mac is booted? ||Sep-13-13|
||With a Qio connected, my Mac Pro kernel panics when I shut down after using Avid Media Composer.||Jul-31-13|
||I'm getting a OS X kernel panic when I remove an SxS card from the Qio connected to a tower Mac Pro that also has a video capture card installed.||Oct-31-14|
|If you have a Mac Pro model 1,1, put the video capture card (such as AJA Kona or Black Magic DeckLink card) in Mac Pro PCIe slot 3 and the Qio bus interface card in PCIe slot 2 to fix this issue. If you have a different model of Mac Pro, the problem occurs only in one of Qio's SxS slots, so use only the other SxS slot. Sonnet and Sony are working to address this issue.|
||I'm getting a long blue screen when I boot a Mac with Qio installed.||Sep-13-13|
||I upgraded to 10.6.8 and my system no longer boots.||Sep-26-11|
||What version of OS X do I need to use Qio with MacBook Pro?||Aug-20-14|
|OS X 10.5.8-10.9 required for Mac Pro and MacBook Pro (non-Thunderbolt).|
OS X 10.6.8-10.9 required for MacBook Pro (Thunderbolt).
||Is Qio Compatible with 17" Thunderbolt MacBook Pro?||Sep-13-13|
|Yes, but you must hot plug the Qio's interface card into the ExpressCard/34 slot of the 17" Thunderbolt MacBook Pro. The Qio will not be recognized in the 17" Thunderbolt MacBook Pro if you boot or restart with the Qio plugged into the ExpressCard/34 slot. See FAQ 632 for more infomation about compatibility connecting Qio via Thunderbolt.|
||Is Qio compatible with Echo ExpressCard/34 Thunderbolt Adapter?||Jul-31-13|
|Yes, but it requires the Sonnet PCIe Bus Extender ExpressCard/34 Revision B (serial number beginning with B), which began shipping December 2011; or the Sonnet PCIe 2.0 Bus Extender ExpressCard/34.|
||Is Qio compatible with the Matrox T/ADP Thunderbolt Port Adapter?||Feb-28-12|
|No, the Qio software is not yet compatible with a Thunderbolt connection. When Qio is compatible, it should work with the Matrox T/ADP Thunderbolt Port Adapter.|
||Is the Qio PCIe 2.0 Bus Extender card compatible in all slots of the Mac Pro 5,1?||May-06-13|
|No, the Qio PCIe 2.0 Bus Extender card does not work in the x16 slot (slot 2) in the Mac Pro 5,1. Use slot 3 or 4 instead.|
||How can I read UDF Formatted SxS cards?||Aug-11-17|
|You need to download and install the Sony SxS UDF Driver, available here http://pro.sony.com/bbsc/ssr/cat-recmedia/resource.downloads.bbsccms-assets-mkt-recmedia-downloads-upgrades.shtml|
||Why is the Panasonic OS X P2 driver not compatible with 64-bit mode, while the Sony SxS driver, CF driver and SATA drivers are compatible with 64-bit mode?||Oct-31-14|
|This issue is now resolved. The Panasonic P2 driver included with Qio software version 1.2.3 and later is 64-bit compatible. Installing Qio 1.3.2 or later adds P2 support to systems running OS X in 64-bit mode, including Mavericks (10.9) and Yosemite (10.10) |

||Is the Qio compatible with OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) and OS X 10.9.5 (Mavericks)?||Oct-31-14|
||My computer kernel panics after updating OS X to 10.8.2. What can I do to fix it? (Qio/Qio CF4/Qio E3 issue)||Nov-06-12|
||My Qio Does Not Recognize My SD-to-SxS Adapter||May-07-13|
|If you are using the Qio or Qio E3 connected via Thunderbolt to a Mac running OS X 10.8.2+, this is a known issue that may be fixed by installing this software patch .|
With the release of OS X 10.8.2, Apple disabled USB 2.0 drivers over Thunderbolt. Because many SD-to-SxS adapters use the ExpressCard USB interface, and Qio and Qio E3 support USB-based adapters through the ExpressCard (SxS) slots' USB interfaces, the adapters are not recognized under 10.8.2+. Sonnet's USB 2.0 Over Thunderbolt Patch for Qio/Qio E3 removes the limitation and allows your adapter to be recognized.
||I have a Retina MacBook Pro (or other Mac introduced in 2012), and my machine won't boot after installing Qio software.||Dec-06-12|
||My Stardom RAIDSonic ST3620-2S-S2 is not reliable with 6Gb drives and and a 6Gb controller.||Jul-08-13|
||Can I format an SxS card in UDF format in macOS?||Jan-20-21|
|Yes, but you must use Terminal.|
1) Open Terminal
to get the name of the disk. It will be something like "disk4". Ejectable media are typically the last in the list.
newfs_udf -v "My Volume Name" disk4
if disk4 was the correct one. The volume name is anything you want of course.
4) Unplug and replug the SxS card
(Due to somebody's bug, the disk will only mount after being ejected.)
5) You can run
without any parameters to see other parameters that can be set.
The process can be automated somewhat by writing a bash script, which can be looked up on the internet.
