After patching (9.0.8 update) Pinnacle Studio 9 to get rid of sluggishness and preview stutters, I compiled the clips and tried to render the Movie to the DVD format. The DV files are 25 gig total (residing on the external drive) and the DVD will have 109 minutes of MGEG-2 files on it. My system has crashed twice during the rendering process with a serious error pointing to a driver called MXOFX.SYS after about 90 minutes of rendering effort. The driver is a Maxtor product used by the one touch drive system (i'm assuming) and probably should be removed from this XP pro system. Will this driver impact the systems I/O ability to the USB drive or will the native XP USB 2.0 drivers handle the drive I/O wihout it?
