Okay, so before anyone references it, I've already done this from the KB:

 

http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4700

 

I have a MacBook Pro with an expresscard slot connected to my MacPro tower via Ethernet.  I want to be able to mount and copy a UDF-formatted Expresscard (contents digital video) mounted in the expresscard slot of the MBP, to the attached Mini-SAS RAID hosted by my MacPro tower. 

 

My MBP is running Lion 10.7.4, my MacPro is running SL 10.6.8.  (Please don't tell me to upgrade the tower.  That's impossible during a paid job and these are working machines, I can't risk downtime.)

 

When I connect via AFP to the MBP from the tower, I can only see HFS attached volumes, even after enabling ALL "legacy UAMs" per the KB article linked above, I want to be able to use the MUCH FASTER method of tethering via ethernet (GbE) to copy and ingest the video contents of the UDF-formatted Express card in the MBP expresscard slot.  This USED to be possible when both machines were running SL.  No longer.  I'm stuck with an ultra-slow USB card reader for the expresscard ingest directly to the tower's RAID. 

 

PLEASE HELP!!!!

    Instead of mounting and copying from the MacBook Pro, would it be possible to use the MacBook Pro and mount the Mac Pro's RAID to copy from the UDF-formatted Expresscard to the RAID? Or is there something in particular that is requiring the Mac Pro to do the copying (like software it is running)?
