    Sony PDWU2 not showing properly in Windows


    Just for Information and faster error chasing:

    I had the following issue on 2 Windows 7 /64bit HP machines, one english and one german setup, Media Composer 8.6+.

    When connecting a Sony XDCAM PDW U2 with latest firmware (5.0.7) , any mounted Disk shows only 2 Folders (General and ProAV), but not all the others (when show hidden files is on) in Windows explorer. Also it is not possible to see the files in MediaComposer (using nablet and whatelse..)

    We found out that it looks like a Windows Driver (maybe a standard MS Update) has overwritten or at least overruled the Sony original driver.

    So our Work around was to uninstall the mounted XDCAM drive, run the Sony PDW u2 installer (v 5.0.7) and than do a hardware rescan. It still says it is the Windows driver, but you now can see all data on the disc. Strange...

    But a working workaround...

    Hope this saves you the 2 ours I spent with finding this solution...
