I will PAY anyone who can solve this problem!
I have a good computer and good equipment, but everytime I try to capture video, it tells me my hard drive is full after only 8 or 9 minutes.
Here are my PC specs:
Athlon 1700, 1.5Mhz
512MB DDR memory (266 mhz)
60 GB HD (40% full) 5400 rpm, ATA100
I am recording from a pretty standard VHS machine (SVHS, but normal mode).
I tried to capture video with a Dazzle 80, but it would drop frames, so I upgraded to a Pinnacle AV/DV (an internal capture card). It no longer drops frames, and my Audigy sound card is capturing all of the audio.
Just short of 10 minutes it gives me a "Disk Full" error. This happens with 3 different programs. It cannot be full because it can capture and save 10 minutes at a time... I've played around with the virtual memory settings, but no result. The audio continues, but the video reads error. This happened with the dazzle and the pinnacle.
I tried decreasing frame rate, quality, etc. -- the result is always the same. Does anyone have an idea of what I am doing wrong? How much space does video take? I should be able to capture a full hours worth of analog!
Someone here must have captured video before? Otherwise, can you point me to a good forum that may help? It doesn't make sense.
I defragged and cleaned disk with no change in results.
