    +1 on this. I bought a used HVX200 in the DVXUser market place from a very generous Jason Ramsey. Along with several "throw in" items was the addonics express card adapter. I have been trying for weeks to get it to work and eventually contacted their customer support. After some back and forth they remotely accessed my laptop and had me up and running in no time.

    Huge relief. Thanks for the thread.

      I am having a hard time finding the lenovo s10e. Anyone bought one recently or know of a similar model that works? I think the newer s10e models do no have the expresscard slot.


        The s10es had a very short manufacturer life. I have only ever found 2 netbooks with Express Card the lenovo and an HP that slips my mind right now. Point is neither are still manufactured. You would probably have to check out the used market. A quick Ebay search showed a bunch for sale.


          The s10e's I am seeing on ebay, its hard to tell if its the model with the express card slot or not. Does the original s10e have a small silver circle on the sides where the screen and body meet?


            just to add

            this "scan fix" helped me greatly in my dual boot mac pro

            on win side i have win xp w/addonics and on mac i have the dual = both work great

              So what's the answer to this- which driver for which device? AJ-PCD35 (P2 drive) PCIe driver?

              Everything is a P2 deck, cam, store or drive that must be connected.

              I tried the Rosewill adapter, couldn't get it to work. Don't know if it was a driver issue, or a 32GB E-series card issue, or a Win 7 issue.

              I may try this Amtron adapter, other users have had success with it.

                Don't use any of those drivers, you need the cardbus driver. Look on the addonics site for some videos that show how to install the drivers.

                  So the Addonics videos would apply to installing drivers for other card readers also, right?
                  Thanks Barry!

                    They're what I used when I installed my rosewill adapter.

                      What are people using these days as a minimum spec notebook/laptop in the field to offload P2 card data into?

                        Thanks to the originator of this really good thread. I have gotten this to work with both windows vista64 bit and windows 7 64 bit. and a roswell rc-608 express card to card bus adapter.

                        The procedure I followed is below and again the links to the screen capture videos referenced in the first post:
                        Reading p2 cards with an add on express to pcmcia card reader (roswell rc-608 and similar) on Windows vista/7.

                        First, get the p2 card driver appropriate for your os version and install it:

                        Not necessary to check one of the items in the list though ok if you do (panasonic program will require you plug in and turn on the device).

                        reboot the system with the card adapter and p2 card inserted

                        Cancel any windows generated "do you want to install..." options.

                        Now open the device manager:
                        right click 'my computer' and click manage
                        click 'device manager'
                        the p2 card should show up as an unknown device
                        right click the device and choose 'update driver'
                        browse to here:
                        C:\Program Files\Panasonic P2\Drivers\Card

                        and the windows dialogue should find the drivers it needs in the base of that directory to install the p2 card driver

                        There have been some notes that the E series p2 cards are a little finicky with these express to pcmcia card adapters, sometimes requiring you to reboot with the

                        card inserted.

                        Sometimes you can simply open the device manager as above, right click on your system (the root of all devices listed) and choose 'scan for hardware changes'

                        The videos at the bottm of the website below show mouse actions for these notes.



                          Very interesting and useful sharing, Thank you!
