Description: SxS UDF Driver software enables reading of MXF files recorded in UDF mode on SxS memory card. [Note: This driver is not sufficient to support the computer communicating with the device. You must also install the SxS Device Driver.] Installation of these drivers enables the Sonnet SF3 Series SxS PRO X Card Reader, SF3 Series SxS Pro Card Reader, SxS PRO X Thunderbolt 3 Single Slot Reader, Echo ExpressCard Thunderbolt Adapter, Qio, and Qio E3 to support UDF files. Download and install the latest UDF driver, and then restart your computer.

macOS Mojave, Catalina & Big Sur:
The Sony UDF driver is not needed on macOS 10.14.6+. UDF support is built into newer versions of macOS.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you have 1.0.1 UDF driver
, first uninstall the existing Sony UDF driver manually by removing these files. In Terminal, type
sudo rm -r /System/Library/Extensions/SxSLogicalUnitDriverExpress.kext
sudo rm -r /System/Library/Extensions/SxSLogicalUnitDriverUS10.kext
sudo rm -r /System/Library/Extensions/sxsudf_fs.kext
sudo rm -r System/Library/Filesystems/sxsudf.fs
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You can format SxS media as UDF in macOS using the Sony Memory Media Utility.

642 Qio Serial ROM Flasher (OS X) 1.0Feb-15-2012
Operating System Requirements: Mac OS X 10.6.8+
File Name: QioFlasherGUI.dmg
File Size: 395.0 KB
This software updates the serial ROMs on revisions A - G Qio pro media readers (part numbers QIO-E34 and QIO-PCIE). This is not required for revision H and later Qios.
Note: This software must be used along with the Qio Firmware Updater (OS X) to enable Windows-compatibility.

Usage Notes
• The application "QioFlasherGUI" included in the disk image that you download must be copied to your computer, preferably the desktop (for easy access), and then run from that location. You may safely delete the application after the serial ROM update is complete.
• When the application instructs you to "update the serial ROM", you must click the drop-down menu and select "PC-compatible", even if you do not intend to use the Qio on a PC.
