dv camcorder to hdd

is it possible to transfer directly from my cam to my hdd for future editing as the software(pixela,ulead video studio6)that i use only allows up to ten minutes before it stops thus you end up with breaks in a 1hour movie which i am trying to avoid

I am guessing that you are using windows98 as you O/S.

Win98 only allows a 4Gb maximum file size which would explain the 10 minute problem. Record in 10 min. segments then "stich" them together with studio6 during the editing.

Alternatively you could upgrade to win2k or XP

Hope it helps

thanks y-not
but i am using windows xp and when i put the ten minute segments together and watch it on a disc you can see the breaks
ps sorry to take so long to reply but i had a little worm trouble

Oh! Sorry. From the description it seems like a win98 problem.

Sorry I cannot offer any other advice but to return you to the top of the list in the hope that someone else might have the answer (I'll keep watching in case they do - nice to know how you resolve it)

Make sure you see if here may be any relevant software updates from the Ulead website for your Program version which may help also if your XP is formatted to the FAT32 file system rather than the more recent NTFS sile system , you will have this limitation.

DV capture and ptt/burning is very resource hungry. Things to check:

DMA enabled on hd's

all non-vital b/g progs off (+ av) or dropped frames will occur

BTW it's best to edit on 2nd hd, with main prog on 'c'

Is hd FAT32 or NTFS?

THANKS MICHELLE
THE HD IS FAT32 BUT I DO USE A SECOND HD WITH ALL PROGRAMMES OFF BUT IN THE LAST HOUR I`VE MANAGED TO RUN WITH ULEAD FOR 54MINUTES AND ALL I DONE WAS TO CHAGE THE DRIVER AND ALSO TURN OFF SCREEN CAPTURE SO IT LOOKS LIKE IT WAS DRIVER TROUBLE
SO THANKS ONCE AGAIN AND I HOPE THIS HELPS SOMEONE ELSE

Dug a bit deeper into your problem but by the time I got back here the problem has been solved!

The reason win98 had this problem was because of the limitations of FAT32 (as mentioned by Patr100 & MichelleC).

I can't understand how the driver has resolved the problem and, from what I've found out, you are likely to have the problem again unless you change the file system to NTFS.

I have seen many postings relating to video from MichelleC - I would certainly check out her suggestions
