K7 formatted SD card not recognized

Camera: K7 Chosen color space: Adobe RGB.
Computer: Macbook Pro (mid 2012)
OS: Mountain Lion

No SD card formatted by my camera is recognized by this computer's built-in SD card reader. The local Mac Dealer (we are too far away from a metro community to have an Apple Store, thankfully) ran a hardware test which rated the SD card reader as good. The service tech used his own SD card (from a different camera ... didn't ask make and model), which was immediately recognized.

Does anyone have any idea why my K7's cards are not recognized? I have to use a USB card reader, which works flawlessly.

Sounds like it might be a driver issue. Maybe the built-in reader doesn't know how to recognize an exFAT filesystem? See if there are any updates out there.
