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)

713 My Qio Does Not Recognize My SD-to-SxS AdapterMay-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 .

Background
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.
 
730 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
757 My Stardom RAIDSonic ST3620-2S-S2 is not reliable with 6Gb drives and and a 6Gb controller.Jul-08-13
The Stardom RAIDSONIC ST3620-2S-S2 is not reliable when connected at 6Gb. It was designed for 3Gb SATA. If you connected previously using a 3Gb controller, even with 6Gb drives, the connection was 3Gb. With the 6Gb controllers and 6Gb drives, the connection is negotiated at 6Gb, but the connection is not reliable because of the older design of the Stardom chassis does not support 6Gb. The drives may not be recognized or if recognized, transfers will fail at some point.
