I recently bought the Sony PMW-EX1R camcorder which uses Sony SxS cards. After reading posts on various forums I decided to take a calculated risk and not purchase the expensive SxS cards but rather a MxR ExpressCard Reader from e-films that allows you to use common SDHC cards. Upon plugging the MxR and a SanDisk Extreme 16 GB Class 10 card into the camera for the first time, the camera gave me a message of "Cannot Use Media. Unsupported File System." My camera's firmware is up to date with version 1.20. Any suggestions? Thanks!

News from IBC today, JVC Professional has announced it will support Sony's XDCAM EX format that uses MPEG-2 video and SxS flash memory cards for storing video. JVC's first XDCAM EX product will be the KA-MR100G docking media recorder, that will attach to current JVC Pro Camcorders, allowing the tape based cameras to record directly to SxS media. Can a native XDCAM EX camcorder made by JVC be far behind? From a JVC Press Release:
