Writing to P2
on Sep 8, 2009 at 7:59:18 pm

I'm trying to send some footage that came off a P2 card, back to a P2 card. I have my HVX hooked to my Mac Pro via firewire in '1394 device' mode. This is the way I ingest footage, but the P2 card seems to be 'read only', so I am unable to write anything to the P2 card. Is this doable with what I've got? Thanks!

No, you need to export from FCP to a P2 compliant MXF. You can't input/output via firewire from an HVX.

To get more then read only access to your P2 cards, you should mount the cards via USB2, but dropping a QT movie on to a P@ card, won't make a compatible MXF file.

You can use a P2 recorder that accepts video in to make MXF recordings.

What are you trying to do, exaclty? Play back something?

Sorry, I didn't specify that it is MXF files, exactly as they came off the card. I've got a couple of corrupted clips and I was going to try an in-camera 'repair'. I'll try using USB2. Thanks!

AH, got ya. Yes, that should work, but it has to be USB on a Mac with an HVX200.

Using USB2 did allow me to write to the P2 card, but, unfortunately the file will not copy over. "The Finder cannot complete the operation because some data in “0002A4.MXF” could not be read or written. (Error code –36)."

Hmm. Sounds fishy. Anything you know of that could gave happened? Does the file open in P2CMS?

The file does open in P2CMS and anything else that supports MXF directly, but it won't play all the way through. There are frames that look like this:

Ouch, that is corrupted. Looks like something got goofed up in your transfer from the card.
