    Capturing from dv camera-computer problem

    Could i have a faulty hard-drive because i have problems when i transfer my dv video to my pc,I get alot of dropped frames and i mean alot and the only way i can stop having dropped frames is to turn off write caching on the disk

    Or is there something that could cause this to happen??

    faulty FW cable? or USB cable?

    does it do it regardless of tape you're transferring?

    have you tried it on another PC?
    One can never stop saying Thank You

    Its firewire and yes it works ok on another pc,Its not faulty cables and its ok when i transfer from pc to camera,All i can think it could be is a faulty HD,But ive ran test's and there is no bad sectors.

    All my other hardware is running fine,Its a strange one...

    I dont think its a software problem.

    Check out your memory. Memtest 86+ . It is unlikely to be the harddrive - but more likely a bottleneck somewhere on that system.

    Nope not a memory problem ive ran Memtest 86+&Prime95 at the same time for hours no problems.This is a strange one it could be a hardware conflict?

    I say it could be a HD problem because ive allways had problems playing games like Doom3/Quake 4,What happens in those games is jerking/wobble when slowly moving the mouse up-down-left-right,It happens at certain points of the games
