Beware Retina MacBook Pro compatibility issues as of June 2012
on 22 June 2012
[Edit: Compatibility issues are now resolved. Not sure how long ago now as I can't remember but it was last year (2012) and the reader is now working perfectly with F/W updates]
Beware of a compatibility issue as of 21st June 2012.
Having had issues reading a Lexar 1000x CF card using the earlier USB 2.0 version of Lexars reader I purchased this one and it worked fine on both a PC & a MacBook air. Now I've taken delivery of of a new Retina MacBook Pro, upon trying this reader it failed to work, only flashing the blue reader light.
I contacted Lexar support via the live chat facility and they confirmed that there is currently a compatibility issue between them which is apparently being worked on with some vigour between both Lexar & Apple and they're expecting to release a fix "soon".
I'm sure it won't be too long but wanted to stop others being disappointed if ordering one now.
