recently installed a mojo and 2 seagate 250G internal sata’s in my xw 8200 machine. Went to digitize from my dv machine at dv25411 and got a dreaded DIG_VDM_OVERRUN error. Posted this on the avid forum and thanks to frankle, did a search about the problem. Support center says it occurs when capturing to an external drive which isn’t the case. Is it possible that because the promise card is in slot 6 and the scsi controller lives on the same bus it’s causing a conflict? I also have 2 seagate 300G ext FW and there’s no problem there.
My mojo is on the internal FW card. My other external FW drives are on the separate FW card per avid specs. I heard that sata’s were not supported as well but there are folks out there successfully using them…go figure. I was able to capture but only at 15:1 instead of dv25411. If I understand this error, from what I’ve been able to read, is the bus can’t keep up with the data. I do know that the card is on the same bus segment as the scsi controller. I’m wondering if there’s a conflict between the scsi and sata controllers. maybe disabling the scsi control would help
Yes, they’re brand new seagate 250G sata 7200 rpm. I spoke to someone who suggested that because they were raided together to make one huge volume, it may be causing the problem. They also suggested I contact HP to see if there may be a setting missed when we installed the promise card. BTW, what slot should the second FW card be in?
7200 RPM drives are on the slow side for media storage in non-linear edit systems. That does explain why you can digitize 15:1 but not higher resolutions. Most edit systems spec 10K or 15K RPM drives, either singly or RAIDed.
