    Theoretically, yes actually. Shouldn't be much reason why you couldn't plug the camera into the wall, thunderbolt out and cut directly from the drive. Not sure how efficiently it would work with CinemaDNG files but ProRes etc? Should totally work.

    I have had a Shuttle2 for a very short time and using MacDrive allows me to view and manipulate the drive any time it is plugged directly (via an external SSD dock). MacDrive also formats the SSD properly for me by selecting the Format Drive option. Using MacDrive is very seamless and transparent and it was only $50.00.

    If you don't have MacDrive installed, as it sounds from your problem description, Windows is just not recognizing the Mac format and thinks the drive is blank and unformatted. MacDrive eliminates this problem completely for me.

    Most of the recent SATA docks have all 3 interfaces (Firewire, USB 3 and eSATA). If you go with USB3 (which is more than adequate for transferring large files), your motherboard (or add on PCIe USB3 card) must provide enough power through the USB port or the dock will drop down to USB 2 speeds.

    I think you misunderstand. I havent used macdrive yet. Windows is not properly reading the WINDOWS formatted drive.

    How would a Macbook Air with the 1.7 i5s run Ultrascopes? I was looking at the website and it has a resolution minimum but I did not see a hardware min? While looking I didnt find any requirements for Resolve either? Looking at a new laptop when I get this badboy. My 2008 17'' MBP doesn't have thunderbolt and I wouldnt mind having a lighter smaller machine

    Pretty strong rumors indicate that new MBAs and a smaller sized MacBook Pro (ala Air size) will ship with the next few weeks.

    Question becomes whether the slimmer MBP will use the integrated Intel 4000 graphic chip, or a discrete graphic chip, and of course, what resolutions will be supported.

    Rumor further has it the MBP slim will incorporate the retina display capabilities of the iPad 3.

    Maybe I should have explained why I personally don't directly edit from the same SSD that would be in either a recorder or the camera. SSDs are quiet, fast and have no moving parts. They are generally considered to be reliable, especially the high end enterprise SSDs. But SSDs have now been in widespread use on the desktop for about two years. One thing that has been noticed is that they do fail and when that happens, they often go into a pre-programmed "panic mode", rendering the SSD useless.

    The camera's SSD will be constantly and completely written and rewritten, unless you want to buy a bushel of SSDs. Given that, a heavily used SSD is far more likely to fail than a drive (either SSD or HDD) in your laptop or desktop that is just used for storage or editing. One of my workstations used an SSD as its Windows 7 boot drive and after approximately 16 months, it began to fail with BSODs. After searching the Internet, I found that the problem was not a rarity. Suit yourself, but that's my advice.
