Mac with M1 chip compatibility issues with XQD CFExpress Card readers

I recently obtained a ProGrade Thunderbolt 3 Card reader. It reads CFExpress Cards but not XQD cards on a MacBook Air with an Intel chip. On my Mac mini with an M1 chip neither kind of card is recognized. ProGrade tech support claims its a Sony issue, which makes no sense to me. Apple claims that it is a third party hardware issue, and that manufacturers of peripherals will need to update their products for compatibility with the newly introduced M1 machines. Before I buy a different card reader, does anyone have any insight?
