    Hi,

    So I used to have Windows laptop, no issues with DSTT, but recently got a Mac. Now whenever I use it it just comes up with Menu? in red text. I can't use the panasonic formatter, due to being on a Mac, so was just wondering if anyone knew how to get it to work on a Mac?

    Thanks in advance.

    did you reformat your card in your mac? if so make sure to select Master Boot Record

    Yeah, i've got that firmware on it, tried all the previous ones as well, I really think it's a problem associated with Macs, and was wondering if anyone has had a similar experience, and maybe a solution?

    you never answered my question. if you formatted in mac the default partition will be GUID. you can format it in fat 32 but it won't read in the dstt.

    i have a mac and i've set up around 8 dstts. the only time i got the error you mention is because my partition wasn't in Master Boot.

    Same here on both counts, we have 3 DSTT & R4 and always works as described above.

    i use disk utility (terminal if i need fat16), but i don't think you are understanding what i'm saying. the error i got was because i didn't have the MBA partition map on one of my cards - it came that way and i didn't realize it at first. so i'm telling the OP to check the partition map. if it's not mba he needs to repartition not just erase.
