Transferring footage
on Sep 14, 2010 at 8:31:00 pm

While my G5 is in the shop I'm wondering if / how to transfer DVX 100B footage to an external IOMEGA drive. The drive has an available 400 firewire port and I am using the 800 port going into my MBP. Before I tried going through the 400 fw port I wanted to ask if this is a possibility or would everything start burping and smoking? And is there a better 'plan B' I should be looking into? Thanks.

Using FCP 2.

DV for A/B editing, should work fine with FW400 but not much else. Other option is to buy a drive with FW800.

Thanks for the quick reply Michael. I have two FW 800 drives but want to know if I plug the camera into the 400 port how will it show up in FCP? Will it hurt anything?
