Hi, I have a Macbook Pro 2.16 core duo 2gb of ram 100gb 7200rpm Hardrive and of couse final cut pro 5.1 anyway i have a problem. I filmed a big event and am preping to edit. My hardrive didnt have enough free space on it so i bought a acomdata 160 gb drive (firewire of couse) and have set the scratch disk and the autosaves and the caches of final cut pro to the exsternal firewire drive. Of couse the macbook pro only has a single fire wire port so the camera is pluged in back of the firewire drive. The bandwidth seems suffician and there are no droped frames however every 9 minuts and 25 seconds the capture stops because it says i dont have enough free disk space. Well when it does this i check the internal drive and it has 16gb of space(even though i know it shouldnt matter) then i check the exsternal one witch should be the only one that matters and it has over 130gb left on it. Then i go back and restart the capture and it works fine and in exactly 9 minuts and 25 seconds i get the same error. So now i say fine ill capture to my interanl drive and then ill just move it over to the exsternal one. Well when i try to move the project over i get an error right before its done with the copy. the error code is -1309. I truly have no idea how to fix this and i thought it was possible to capture dirrectly to a firewire drive or atleast to move over a 12gb file. However no matter what i do it wont work. Please help soon because im on a deadline any suggestions Thank you *oh and i have a few other files that wont copy over eather but the wired thing is there all over 6giga bytes. These are un film related. Thought maybe that would help.
