Can anyone help identify what the issues are with the Dell 8200 machine for editing? I have an 8200, purchased 1 year ago - and plan to add an analog editing card (Canopus DV Storm2 Pro?) for my analog footage. I saw the warning about incompatibility for the 8200 - can anyone please clarify.
In a nut shell - tech support for the 8200 was terrible. We had a tremendous amount of tech issues and few of them were resolved satifactually. The main culprit was that Dell put XP on these machines without having the proper drivers for it. The biggest issue was the graphics card, but there were others.
By now Dell should have resolved these issue, and if they didn't, the vendors should have proper XP drivers by now. Follow the tips on our WinXP tweaks page http://www.videoguys.com/WinXP.html
