Actually everything is going fine except for the new hard drive.
I bought a Western Digital 160GB drive because I recently started capturing video after getting a Sony DVD burner. It was too much to continuously capture to the old drive. I had to delete my work after each project.
The problem is that the new drive is not capturing successfully. It captures very slow, with noisy audio and extremely sporadic video frames. I am using Sony Screenblast Movie Studio 3.0 software. If I transfer files to the new drive, they seem to be okay. It's just when I try to capture to it that I have problems. The drive is 7200 Ultra DMA and is the slave drive.
There is one kind of unusual thing I don't yet have a grip on. It's a 160GB drive, but only shows up as 149GB capacity.
Any thoughts are appreciated.
