1.0 out of 5 stars A con- you decide ?, 29 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There is a big clear Apple Mac software symbol on the packaging....but it's a lie !
Early versions of this card reader will NOT work with MAC OSX 10.7 unless you carry out a Firmware upgrade via a download. However, the download is only available in Windows format and the down load operation requires a PC with a Firewire 800 port.
How many MAC owners also have a PC ? Turns out mine is an early version with old firmware but you can only find out once you purchase and then try various cards in it. It should NOT have a MAC friendly logo on the box.
The support centre at DeLock don't want to know about this. I would return mine to Amazon straight away but as I no longer have the box, I'm stuffed. Do an internet search about the DeLock MAC problem, a lot of Apple owners left with an expensive card reader they can't use.
