Panasonic AU-XPD1 Memory Card Drive “P2 Drive”
These new, faster cards, the AU-XP0256B and AU-XP0512B, are not compatible with the current AU-XPD1 Express P2 drive. As a result, an upgraded Panasonic AU-XPD1 has been developed. This Express Drive will use the same SKU (AU-XPD1) as the existing drive even though it makes use of upgraded hardware.
In an effort to provide the best and most convenient service to our customers, Panasonic will be providing updated AU-XPD1 Drives in exchange for the original drives free of charge.
Customers who purchase the new B Series Express P2 Cards should contact Panasonic service in order to arrange delivery of a newly updated AU-XPD1 Drive by emailing ProVideoSupport@us.panasonic.com and using the subject line “AU-XPD1 Exchange”.
Customers using the original A series Express P2 cards do not need to upgrade their drives. This offer is only extended to customers who already own an AU-XPD1 drive to be exchanged.
Panasonic reserves to the right to extend or terminate this program at any time. Panasonic reserves the right to deny exchanges for any reason.
The Panasonic AU-XPD1 P2 Memory Card Drive is a compact, single-slot P2 card reader/writer that uses a USB 3.0 interface, which is fast enough to accommodate expressP2 card data transfer rates up to 2.4 Gb/s.
It is compatible with P2 and expressP2 memory cards, as well as microP2 cards when using the optional AJ-P2AD1G adapter. Two USB 3.0 ports are provided on the device; one for transferring data and one for powering the device from your computer or an AC adapter. For computers without USB 3.0 support, the device is backwards compatible with USB 2.0.
