Hi there, this is my first post and I could not find an answer to this in the FAQ's so here goes. First of all my system (slightly modified DELL):
P4 2.8HT with 1Gb DDR400
2x80Gb Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 ATA100 HDD
1xDVD DL writer
Radeon 9800Pro 128Mb 8xAGP
19" Samsung 930BF 4ms TFT
XP Pro, Pinnacle Studio Plus v9
That's the main stuff. Should be enough info I think. So the problem...
I have no problems capturing video to my system disk at over 20,000kb/s via Firewire from my Sony HC35E Camcorder. However, my disk crashed and I have successfully replaced it with a new Seagate (listed above) and had a fresh install. Again, this captures fine, but I wanted to use a scratch disk for DV only to save my system disk getting scrambled over time.
So I bought an identical seagate and installed it on the same channel (both disks on cable select with system disk at end of cable) The system all works fine for general use but when I set the scratch disk for capture, it tells me the transfer speed is too slow (around 2000kb/s as opposed to 4000kb/s required).
I have tried a new disk as I thought it may be faulty, but have the same issue.
Both disks are NTFS formatted and I have the two DVD drives on a seperate IDE channel set as cable select also.
Any help or suggestions would be gratefully received. I can use the system fine for editing and rendering but I am frustrated that I have an expensive lump of HDD that I cannot use for capture!
Thanks in advance, Dunnster.
