As I promised in another thread a week or two ago, I have tested the X5R SSD with an adapter installed to turn the micro-sata connector into a regular sata connector. I then used a sata thunderbolt dock to plug the SSD into my Mac Pro.

The standard "DJI" FAT-32 partition mounts on the desktop and is accessible. And the disk is fully recognized as normal in disk utility BUT Cinelight does not see the SSD at all and won't show the clips on it of course.

It seems like the issue has nothing to do with the sata adapter chip, dock, or Mac/OS X but instead with Cinelight not recognizing SSDs that aren't mounted in the official DJI USB 3.0 reader, which I'm sure is done on purpose.

very interesting topic..

wait a moment.. Fat32 ?
Isnt that the dinosaur format that is only capable to handle files up to 2GB ? How can one record raw to that?
Does this mean there must be another kind partition on the card in another format..?
Do you see clips on the card and can you download them?

Yes that's correct, but the FAT32 partition is only about 512MB large in the SDD and its just for holding the cinelight software and manuals that ship with the SSD. There is another partition used for the RAW files but that doesn't mount in the finder. It shows up in terminal as an f-disk partition so it's using a non standard file system that right now appears only Cinelight can access.

Yeah I figured it was totally normal. Just playing around to see exactly where the restrictions are. Which would seem to be related to the official DJI SSD reader as the disk doesn't show up any differently to the OS whether its plugged into the official reader or makeshift thunderbolt reader.
