Question about Acomdata (HD250UE5-72) (HD250UE572) 250 GB Hard Drive
I've always had this problem with capturing video. I'm using a MacBook Pro with Final Cut Studio on it. As soon as i started to do video editing i bought a external hard drive (Acomdata 250 GB Model: HD250UFAPE5-72). THis is where i would capture video to. I could never capture more then 9min and 25 seconds worth of video. I thought this was due to a setting in FCP. I tried all kinds of configuations in the software and talk to other editors trying to find the problem. This wasn't a big deal since i normally capture in small segments anyways. recently i have come across a project that i have needed to capture a long segment of video, so i took my hard drive to a friend to capture this video. Same thing happened on his set up with this hard drive. so what i did was clear my internal hard drive and catured to it. i figuered i could transfer the files from my internal hard drive to my external harddrive. This wouldn't work either. It would transfer 4 GB over and then give me an error message. i'm willing to buy another harddrive but i'm sure what is the problem. i'm using 400 firewire, the harddrive is 7200 rpm with 8mb of cache. so is it the transfer rate, the rpm rate, the cache size, or is it something completely different. thank you for you time in reading this long post.
What is the filesystem format on your external hard drive? there are limits on certain file systems, like maximum size of a single file in fat32 is 4gb. let me know the filesystem on your external hard drive and i will try to consult a few friends for you. regards
