P2 Drivers + Updates for Mac OS X (for HPX 171E)

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I've just received my new HPX 171E and can't wait to get shooting with it.


I have a Macbook Pro, but my disc drive is being weird lately and not wanting to read the driver disc.


So my question is, does anybody know what exactly I need to install as far as drivers/updates, etc? I have bought E-Series P2 cards and I believe I read somewhere that there were necessary updates for these.


I've looked on Panasonic's Support site but it is quite a mess. Anyone know exactly which files I should install?


This is a link to the site:



Thanks so much in advance if anyone knows.

Are you on OSX 10.6 Snow Leopard and using a Duel Adapter? From what I understand, there was an issue with these two working together. Don't know if it's fixed yet, but you may want to roll back to OSX 10.5 Leopard for now if it you can't get the system to work with the latest updates.
