I am having problems with dropped frames when transferring my edited movie back to my DV camcorder.
I had the camcorder DV-In enabled a few months ago yet I have not been able to get a finished movie back onto DV tape. The company that enabled the camcorder assure me that they do not return the camcorders unless they have been tested. They suggest a problem with my setup, ie the throughput from my HD.
I have an MSI motherboard with an Athlon 950 meg chip. I have Windows XP Pro as my OS and a 120 gig 7200 Maxtor Hard Disc (recently fitted following a failure of my previous HD, so there isn't much on there to defrag). I am having the chip upgraded to 2 gig and I shall have a 40 gig slave drive as I have been told that it is better to have movies on a different drive to the editing programme. I am using Premiere 6.
1. Does anyone know why I am dropping frames?
2. Does anyone think that the upgrade will solve the problem?
