I tried making a movie in FCE yesterday with my new G-Tech G-Drive set as the scratch disk. It is hooked to my MBP (2.2ghz SR) via Firewire 800. When I went to the capture screen, it didn't bring up anything except for the rainbow of colors in the preview area. All of my controls - play, stop, etc. - worked from Final Cut and the tape would play on the computer but I couldn't capture anything. So, I went and changed the scratch disk back to my boot drive and it worked fine. What is wrong with it? The guy at the Apple store said the two would work together; he even recommended the G-Drive. It also will not work when hooked via Firewire 400. I bought the G-Drive for this soul purpose, and now it is not working. I can, however, capture in iMovie '08 using an external scratch disk. Do I need to upgrade Final Cut Express HD 3.5 to Final Cut Express 4? Thanks for all the help! I also posted this in the Mac Software category. Wasn't sure which was the better area.
