    Thanks for the responses. I totally agree with you Bill. It definately is a too much data, can’t keep up issue. In the world of 20/20 hindsight, the grief I’ve spent with this far exceeds the little extra $$$ I would have spent on the 10K drives. Now, I’d pay dearly just to have someone fix it once and for all.

    Point well taken but I just didn’t stick anything into my machine. My system is per avid specs straight from the website. As I said, HP 8200 dual 3.20, 2 G ram, NVidia FX1300 gx card, ADS PYRO PCI 64 second FW card for ext FW drives. MY sata drives are Seagate 250G 7200.8, 7200RPM sata drives striped raid 0. The controller card is a PROMISE Fasttrak 150 TX4. It is located in slot 5 on it’s own bus segment. The more I hear about it, the promise card may be the culprit. I’m not sure the drives are the issue. If I understand you correctly, seagate 7200 RPM drives with are not fast enough DV25411? Also, there are quite a few sucessfully using internal sata arrays on both forums.

    I ran into a problem where I did not have enough spickets for my fire wire drives and used the USB port. I have the seagate external FW drives that has usb and FW on the back. Whatever you do DO NOT use the seagate 300G externals. There’s a known issue with the drive falling asleep when idle and really raises h-ll with AVID. Everyone has their favorite mfr. as long as you’re working in dv it “should ” be ok.

    Yes you can, although if you did a survey I think you’d find more people use FW than usb. Also, it entirely depends on what format you’re working in. For dv usb should be ok. Alot depends if your running mojo. The mojo needs it’s own firewire and its own bus which means you need to add a second FW card to use ext. FW drives.

    I have an xw8200 system built to avid specs and I’ve yet been able to get my sata’s to work. I keep getting overruns when trying to digitize. My promise fastrak 150 tx4 card started out in slot 7 but that proved to be unsuccessful because it shares the bus with the scsi controller. I moved the card to slot 5 and thought I had it licked. Did an capture session with no problems but the next day kept getting overruns when trying to digitize. I have 2 seagate 7200.8 internal sata’s striped raid 0. I’m also running 3 Ext FW drives on a seperate FW card which I relocated from slot 5 to slot 7. So far that’s worked fine. I also have the mojo on the built in fw port. Short of starting over is there something I’ve missed.

    also check audio settings for 48K vs 32K.

    Solved the problem the mojo went south. Swapped a mojo out with one from a different system and everything now plays fine. Thanks to all who responded

    Thnnks Chris, I’m 99 % sure I rendered at dv25411. My next experiement is to swap mojo’s with another machine and see what happens. Barring that I’m going to reimport and redigitize the footage; there’s not that much, just a rough cut. Then see what happens
