What codec, frame rate & firewire type? 400 or 800? The game is all about data transfer rates and all those things make a huge difference. For example, one stream of 10 bit uncompressed HD can't be done from a firewire 800 drive but lots of streams of DV can.

You can get a free speed test from Blackmagic or AJA. Test your drive and you will get a chart of what codec and frame rates that your system can support.

Never use your system drive for media. Other internal sata drives, particularly if you RAID them will have a lot more speed than a firewire drive.
