MacBook Pro :: USB 3.0 ExpressCard / Intensity Shuttle Capture?

Dec 13, 2010

I've got a "little" problem here. I've been wanting to buy a good Capture Card that I can use for my 360 all year long, and I recently found out about the Intensity Shuttle.The Intensity Shuttle requires a USB 3.0 Port which I don't have on my Macbook Pro. I was wondering that if I used an express card, would I be able to capture video via the Intensity Shuttle?

Intensity Shuttle:[URL]I would love you if you could find a way for me to use this.

MacBook Pro :: 7200 Rpm Or 5400 Rpm For Hi-intensity Programs

Aug 26, 2010

i'm thinking of getting a macbook pro 15" 2.66ghz for use with logic pro mainly.

my question is really about heat.

if a 7200 rpm drive is going to heat up so much (especially when using intensive programs like logic) that it is bad for the disk would a 5400 be better all round?

obviously it would be slower but would it also last longer/ be more reliable?

...or would the difference in heat be negligible compared to the improved speed?

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Fix Keyboard Backlight Intensity

Sep 6, 2009

In SysPref I found the < Illuminate Under Low Light > button.

I can see the backlight has come on , but it is not at all bright. At least it is nowhere near as bright when compared to a 13" MBP we own. Is there an " Intensity " setting for the keyboard backlight?

Mac Pro :: Blackmagic Intensity Pro Not Working / Has PCIe Been Broken With 10.7.4?

May 21, 2012

I have a 2010 Mac Pro (5,1).8 core. 24 gigs or RAM.I'm having trouble with my Blackmagic Intensity Pro PCI card. I've installed all drivers, tried all the different PCI ports and still my MP fails to recognise it. In the system preferences panel, all options are greyed out and a message says "No Settings Required".At first I thought it'd be a faulty card, but then I tried the card on my friend's 2008 Mac Pro, and it works just fine. What could possibly be wrong? Are the PCI slots on my machine damaged?

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.4)

MacBook Pro :: All In One ExpressCard / 34 Card Reader?

Aug 4, 2009

I used to do DSLR photography with CF, but fell out of love with it and sold it, so now it's back to regular old SD for my point and shoot. I'm looking for a card reader that obviously supports SD, but I'd like some type of all-in-one so I can throw most anything at it. I'd also like it to be flush with the computer when inserted.

MacBook Pro :: Which Expresscard ESata Adapter Actually WORKS

Jul 7, 2009

I just did a search and found nothing but an extremely lengthy thread that makes no sense and doesn't even answer the question. I just want a simple answer here: I have a new 17" '09 uMBP. I want to use my eSata external hard drives. What expresscard adapter should I buy? I was transferring stuff over via USB and was horrified: 25 minutes to transfer 20 gigs of pictures! 20 gigs should take no more than 5, maybe 10 minutes tops over eSata (as it did on my old laptop). So which eSata-Expresscard actually works for the uMBP's?

MacBook Pro :: Expresscard 34 Reader - Leave In Computer?

Feb 4, 2010

I just ordered a sonnet express card 21in1 card reader for my early 2009 MBP 15" (the last one with the express card port) anyhow I chose this one because it sits nicely flush with the MBP body. My question is would it be ok to leave the reader in the computer all the time? (without the card) i have my computer sleeping like 97% of the time. I would like to just leave the expresscard in there but dont know if this would be ok.

MacBook Pro :: ExpressCard SSD Or 6GB RAM Upgrade For Late 2007?

Aug 5, 2010

I've been following many threads on Mac Rumors for a while and thought I finally post something (hopefully) useful for others and in hopes that I can get a meaningful answer. So please don't flame me if this may be a newbie question... here I go:

So I have a MacBook Pro 2.2 Ghz Late 2007 computer, equipped with a 500GB WD Scorpio Blue HD and 4Gb of RAM. What I do with this computer primarily is graphic design and editing (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Final Cut Pro, etc...) and some amature music production (Reason, Garageband, Djay...)

I've followed the 6gb/8gb RAM upgrade forum for a long while for Mac products and finally bought myself a 6GB upgrade kit from Other World Computing. My package arrived today, and I hate to admit but I'm afraid to upgrade the RAM because of the slight hit/miss ratio I heard about using it. It's usually a good thing to upgrade to something higher I know, but I read that even if I did upgrade, I would only be using about 3GB worth of memory on it and not the full 6GB. Plus, I would lose the dual channel architecture doing this... if that did make a big difference to my heavy use of RAM.

Just today I learned about ExpressCard SSD's and how they can act like a separate HD in themselves. I'm highly interested in a very economical 64GB ExpressCard I researched. They're super fast and sound like a better alternative to RAM upgrading, especially if I can only use a max of approx. 3GB of RAM on my model computer.

So after all of my gibbering and jabber, here's the question:

From your experienced perspective, what's a better option for me to take...

1) Use the 6GB RAM upgrade?

2) Buy an ExpressCard SSD and use memory intensive programs on that?

3) Use the 6GB RAM and buy the ExpressCard SSD together?

MacBook Pro :: Better Understanding ESATA Via ExpressCard And Pro Storage Options

Oct 27, 2009

Recently upgrading, I bought the newest MBP 17" specifically because it still had the expresscard slot (thinking having eSATA capability would make it the only pro laptop in the new lineup). I don't need my storage to be portable, I edit at home. Being new to RAID I've been researching and asking questions. I want to get the best setup for my money. People have recommended FW800 but that doesn't help me need to get the most speed possible, I feel eSATA is faster. I also want the redundancy in case a drive crashes. But the MBP only has one expresscard slot.

Does this mean my bandwidth is limited to one 300Mb/s channel? i.e. Should I not even consider RAID0 on a MBP since the bottleneck is 300MB/s? Barefeats recommends this adapter saying it's the fastest they tested at only 200MB/s! So what advantage will stripping give? It seems with only one available eSATA channel the MBP doesn't have many options for professional storage (although still faster than FW800). What would people recommend?..........

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Use Verbatim Expresscard Ssd / Can't Use The Wireless Network

Nov 13, 2009

Anyone using a verbatim expresscard ssd? I have a 32gb one, and it clashes with my wifi. If I have the card plugged in, I can't use the wireless network, and if I use the wireless network, I can't access the card (and any attempt to do so will automatically crash the wifi as well).

This is on a late 2008 macbook pro. The problem is there on both 10.5.8 and 10.6.2. Would be interesting to hear if anyone else is having the same issues, or if the card is somehow broken (i.e. if I should exchange it for another, or just get a refund).

MacBook Pro :: Do The New 17" Allow The ExpressCard Slot To Be Used With Windows 7/Vista

May 7, 2010

Neither the 2008 nor the 2009 models allowed the ExpressCard slot being used with Windows 7/Vista.

Three weeks ago I asked Apple about this simple question and got escalated three times just to get no answer (1. Called shop line -> got connected to tech support -> tech support ask her boss -> boss send the question on to Apple engineers and promised to send the answer per email).

Meanwhile I read on the RME Audio forum that the RME Madiface can be used with Windows 7 on the 2010 Macbook Pro 17".

MacBook Pro :: External Storage And Backup - Get Expresscard / Enclosure?

Aug 15, 2010

I just bought a MBP 2010 with the i7, and I'm trying to figure out what to do for external storage and backup since this is my first Mac ever. I have an Icy Dock with a 1TB harddrive in it, but it only has eSATA and USB ports. USB would not be preferable for trying to back up stuff. I was reading these forums about eSATA ExpressCards, but they seem really suspect (kernel panics sound terrifying) and a lot of work to get going. I was thinking about just getting another enclosure with FireWire 800, but can't seem to find any advice on good ones. I was wondering if I should just get a new external harddrive. I would like to get out of this without having to buy too much new stuff. Can somebody give a recommendation regarding whether I should get an expresscard, new enclosure, or new external?

MacBook Pro :: Expresscard Memory Card Reader - Starting To Sleep

May 4, 2009

that doesn't cause sleep issues? I just bought a Startech 12-in-1 because it said it was mac compatible and couldn't find any reports of interfering with sleep, and yet on my 2009 MBP it does the apparently usual trick of starting to sleep then blipping the super drive and waking up again asking for a password. Are there cards out there that work flawlessly, or is it just a problem with the expresscard slot as a whole?

MacBook Pro :: Add ESATA Expresscard - Get Extra Speed For Data Transfer?

Jul 28, 2009

I have a 15" MacBook Pro from a couple of years ago (2.0 GHz) and I am about to upgrade my harddrive from 75 GB to 500 GB (and from 5400 to 7200 rpm). I think I am going to simply clone my harddrive, so I bought an enclosure for my new drive to use when transferring all my data. The enclosure I purchased works with usb 2.0 or eSATA.

My question is, should I take advantage of the eSATA speeds? Do you think it's worth it? For another 50 bucks I could by an expresscard and a cable that will allow me to do the transfer via eSATA. Should I bother or should I just stick with USB 2.0? I hear USB 3.0 is coming out early next year, so I was thinking I shouldn't bother with eSATA (though 50 bucks isn't much of an investment). But I'm not about to wait for USB 3.0 to come out. Do you think it would be worth spending the money to get the extra speed for this transfer? My 75 GB drive is almost full.

MacBook Pro :: Dual ESATA RAID Connection For Stripped Array Would Be Limited And Expresscard

Oct 28, 2009

The MBP has one expresscard slot. So if you use an eSata adapter (even if it has dual eSATA ports) it would only have one eSATA channel And that would be limited further by the express card slot and more still by the type of card (make, model, etc..). My question is: with Barefeats claiming even the best eSATA card for a MBP being 200MB/s (even if you claim less) using a dual eSATA RAID connection for a stripped array would be limited to 100MB/s per port. Is this correct? Because I'm trying to understand this to see if it's worth building a RAID setup for my MBP when I'm home.

I've asked this numorous times and get helpful advice but not addressng this specific and fundamental fact. I am not interested in FW800 because I want the fastest I can get but want it to make sense. I would also reask my other questions about my situation but this question comes first.

OS X :: ExpressCard Or FW800 - What Is Difference

I don't want to waste hard drive space on my MBP's hard drive on games. I have a 16GB SSD ExpressCard as well as a FW800 external hard drive.

Which would be optimum for playing games off of (considering that a game will need a fairly high read/write speed to keep up)?

If the FW800 drive is better, how much better? Would I notice a difference if I used the ExpressCard instead?
