    Write to P2

    Having an issue when writing to P2 card.  The system is a Newscutter 10.0.1.  We have to diffrent types of machines.  We have builds with the Dell T5500 series and these machines have no issue and can write to P2.  But when we try to write to P2 on our Dell T3500 machine we get no device or P2 card found.  On the other hand if we put a P2 card into the machine the avid has recognized it and show the contents of the card in the editing software so the Avid is seeing the card except when we tell it to write to P2 card.

     

    Anybody have any suggestions?

     

    Thanks

    Brian

    Re: Write to P2

    What type of cad reader are you using?

    If it is Panasonic - is the firmware up to date.

    Also nothing silly like write inhibit tab on the P2 card being set?

    We are using the AJ-PCD10 readers.  The Firmware is up to date with version 2.3 and the rec inhibit tab is not switched.  We are able to write to the card at a windows level so it seems to not be a write issue from a OS level.

    Re: Write to P2

    We have resolved our issue and here is what was the problem.

    Seems in Windows 7 you can install a P2 reader into a system with out installing the P2 driver and have it still work.  When the systems were being built and tested a single card reader was used.  When the new systems got implemented the 5 card reader were pulled out of the old machine and installed but never had the driver installed for that device.  Nobody noticed because they were getting footage into the system.  The only time the issue showed was you couldn't write back to the device without the proper device driver installed.
