I think that you will find that, as well as being a top-posting fuckwit,
STEPHEN is also an arsehole. In fact, one of the finest that you will find
anywhere. Sometimes, I am tempted to feel sorry for him but the feeling soon
passes.

Here's your first check - he's giving you bad advice on purpose. Nice man.

Hello Alex

Nice to hear from you again. I was recently trying to check up on the
current state of play re the firewire interface problem after an very
helpful exchange we had about it on this group some time ago. It seems to
have become a very complicated issue - did you ever identify an external
hard drive firewire interface which was reliable?

I had to give up using the casings from SVP - using USB2 they just weren't
fast enough for DV editing. I have been thinking about trying a Gigabit
network drive instead. Any opinion on that?

Best wishes
PaulF

Why not Seagate? They are popular, inexpensive, and pretty good.

Ah. That's a different kettle of fish. Maybe. It could be your virtual
memory, in which case you need more ram.

Right click on your C drive and look at properties, it should show you how
much you have free. Unless it's under a gigabyte I don't think you'd get
that message.

And if your hard drive is running out of space, you really need a 2nd
drive internally to be fast enough unless you just want to store
documents, files, whatever. Looking at your statement below, that may be
what you want. You could store them on an external drive and move them
over to your internal drive to run. But first be sure what your PC is
telling you.
