    Hi Hope someone can help,

    I've got an Emac 1.25hz 750mb ram on OSX10.3.9 and have Final Cut Pro 4.

    2 Questions:

    1. I purchased a external WD 1TB to capture my kids home movies but when I point FCP to the external HD to capture the footage, the pointer spins forever and I'm never able to capture anything and have to force quit the program, the external drive then is then doing something for the next hour and is very slow.

    It will work sort of properly if I use the internal HD.

    2. When I start to capture on the internal HD by clicking log and capture NOW it will only import around 5 min of footage before it stops the camera and I have to click capture "NOW" again.

    Any thoughts.

    Jye

    Make sure the drive is formatted as Mac OS Extended.
