Problems with 32gig P2 card and copying files to Macbook Pro
on Sep 17, 2010 at 8:49:24 pm

Hello,
Been googling this and have found no answer, hoping someone has a thought on what I can do:
Problem:
Shot 4 all day timelapses at 720 30p, interval record - clips showed up fine and played but I did not copy to a disk.
Today without offloading the timelapse clips, I shot some water footage at 720 24pn at 60fps.

When I opened up the clips in VTR mode on my HVX, the 4 timelapse clips show up with red around the thumbnail. I cannot delete them.
My other clips show up normal and play fine in the camera.

When I try and drag my contents folder and TXT file, it won't copy - it just waits and says getting ready to copy 364 items. Iet it sit for 3 hours hoping it was copying, but it wasn't.

When I mount the card in Log and Transfer in FCP, the water clips play, and I was able to capture one but then I get the dreaded spinning ball and I am forced to force quit FCP.

Help!!!

I don't want to reformat this card and lose my clips! (who would?)
thanks

[zack hill] "When I opened up the clips in VTR mode on my HVX, the 4 timelapse clips show up with red around the thumbnail. I cannot delete them."

You camera has to be in the mode that you shot, so if you shot 30p, camera has to be in 30p, if you shot 24pN, camera has to be in 24pN.

As far transfers go. how are you trying to transfer? A card reader?

Back up your card before reformatting. Make duplicate copies on separate hard drives. These are your master files.

Hey, since I got your guys attention, is USB way faster?
Normally with Firewire (connected to my external via my camera) it takes almost an hour to download one 32 gig card.
With USB I downloaded 28 gigs in about 20 minutes. I had the USB going from my camera to my computer and depositing data onto my g-raid. Seemed way faster than firewire.

thanks

Theoretically, it's not supposed to be, but P2 seems to work very well via USB and Macs.

Another thing is that by going USB from camera, you aren'y tying up the firewire bus with both a camera and your GRaid. This is probably what is causing the faster throughput.

I highly suggest getting the $350 Panasonic USB single card reader.

Hi, I don't have my camera in front of me, but you can go into the camera menu and where the setting is for 1394 (firewire) to mount the disk, you can change that setting to USB.
If you can't find it let me know and when I get home from work I will look at my camera!
thanks
