@all:
SxS (S-by-S) is a flash memory standard compliant to the Sony and SanDisk-created ExpressCard standard. (...) Sony uses these cards as the storage medium for their XDCAM EX line of professional video cameras. (...) The card can be inserted directly into an ExpressCard slot, available on many notebooks. However, it will only work in Windows and Mac OS X, and only with a Sony device driver installed on the machine. Experimental Linux drivers are also available.

(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SxS)

Has anyone been successfeel reading from and/or writing to SxS cards?

I guess the experimental driver they are talking about is this one: https://github.com/kierank/sxs-linux/.
