UHS-II card support on built-in reader?

I already exported the video, but it took hooking the camera up to my laptop with a USB-C>USB-A hub I have for cases I need it. I tried to put my Sony TOUGH UHS-II card in my 16" MBP, and the computer didn't read it. I did check with a UHS-I class card, and it took it and read it just fine; it was just the Sony card which didn't read in the computer.

Do these computers support UHS-II cards? I suspect it's probably not UHS-II compatible, so I may need a reader for my UHS-II card or I need to plug the camera into my computer via a MicroUSB>USB-C, or a hub.

Is this a good question?

@danj ever tried a UHS-II in a M series 16"?

After having mine for a bit, it's as good as the 17" was (minus the need for hubs because Sony took so long to release a freaking camera with USB-C that isn't a ZV with the E-Mount so I can use a C>C cable).


Just out of curiosity - is the file system the same on all memory cards?


@insympathy It was formatted directly on my Sony camera. You cannot use cards from other cameras without the Sony cameras throwing a fit until you format it properly. You can even run into problems using a US 60i formatted card on a PAL 50i 1080p body with video or even potentially needing to change the region setting on a 4K body if you have a card in that 50hz format. Sony is very picky.

I can probably backup the card, wipe it on the Mac and move the data over like nothing happened.


@nick - Sorry Nick, I’m still working with An older digital Blad system and Mac Pro Trashcan.


@danj Apparently it's a Sony TOUGH UHS-II quirk. You need to let them settle and if you pull it too soon it will not immediately remount in Sonoma but not Ventura. I'm not buying any of those now that I know that; it came with my a6300.

I believe all new Macs do support UHS-II because even a USB-C to SD card adapter from Apple supports it as well, so once again - either check if the card is formatted in a supported filesystem or check it for any errors
