P2 footage going corrupt...
on May 11, 2007 at 6:40:25 pm

Is anyone else having a problem with their imported P2 footage going corrupt? We have footage we shot (some on P2 some on the FS-100 FireStore). The P2 files were backed up on external hard drives in seperately labeled folders (which would be used as their REEL Numbers) and then imported into FCP and saved in a Capture Scratch folder on our RAID Tera drives.

Everything was fine for a while and lately some clips started having weird gray artifact problems (pictured below) and some just went offline and became corrupt (Quicktime Pro wouldn't even open them anymore). This has happened now on more than one of our systems, each with different set ups (such as the Capture Scratch being on a RAID on one, while others are LACIE or Maxtor externals- some G5's some Powerbook G4 etc...)

We're just trying to figure out if the problem is with one of the drives, computers, P2 cards, FireStore drive, or even the cameras themselves. So if anyone else has had this problem, let me know. Thanks.

Pictures of what the corruption looks like are posted here:
