Compatibility Issues with Snow Leopard

Posted on by Larry

* Sony EX1 cards seem to have problems with laptops. Again, check Sony’s site.

* SonicFire 5 may have problems with Snow Leopard.

Ben Balser has published a site tracking compatibility issues. You can see it here:

I’m SURE more lists will be forthcoming.
