How can I stop clipping in audacity, Is there any way I can set audacity so it doesnt clip?

Sounds like you have too much volume range in your recording. If it is what I think it is you could use an automatic volume limiter on the input of the AudiCity recorder.

Buffer over flow movi recording time

The error description is not very precise. Anyway:
You should check the Harddisk for Filesystem errors/defective blocks. Don't know if the Camcorder has a built-in function for this. It could also help to delete all data and to reformat the drive.

Otherwise you may need to replace the harddrive (While you are at it, you could put the drive into an external USB cage and check it with your computer). Sounds like a complicated task.

What hard drive is used in wj-hd316a

The hard disk is divided into three partitions: "Normal Recording,"

"Event Recording," and "Copy." Image data is automatically

recorded to the appropriate partition according to the recording

mode. For the normal recording partition, the data is overwritten

when the capacity is full. The event recording partition prohibits

overwriting to protect data. Copy partition prepares data for

retrieval to external medium.

Hard Disk Partitioning Function* automatically

selects the partition to be recorded.

RAID5 distributes image data to multiple hard disks in the

extension unit. Upon hard disk breakdown, lost data can be

restored from other hard disks. When using one WJ-HD300A

Series unit, mirroring function is available for data backup.

(* 10, 13, and 16 screens are available only with the WJ-HD316A.)

Re:Maxtor Quickview 160GB hard drive 3 yrs old Makes loud screech sound which gets louder when left on. Doesn't respond when asked to show recorded list,play or record. What might this indicate? ...


It is going to be out within no time. If the bios still detects it, retrive the data from it to an other drive as fast as possible. Otherwis you will lost all data. Screech sound is due to its takeup record tip touches the media by anyway. The disc may have got a stron hit, shock etc.OK.

My hard drive wont read it worked before dont know why

A disk-drive has several major components:
* the electronics circuit-board
* the power/data external connectors
* the motor that spins the disk-drive
* the read/write mechanism that moves above the recording surface
* the recording surfaces

No power means no "spin", and nothing happens.

Dead motor means no "spin", and nothing happens.

Dead electronics on the circuit-board means that nothing happens.

Damaged read/write mechanism.

Damaged recording surfaces.
