hey guys I really need your help asap.
I got a sony dcrpc105 camcorder, and capture the movie using Sony Image mixer ( software provided ), however the capturing process always stop every 10 minutes or so. I can't find what the problem is. sometimes it says that I exceed the HD capacity. which i dont think it's the reason because I still have a big big space of hd in my computer. thanks for the help I really appreciate it

Hi, Same Camcorder as me.... good choice

The problem you are describing is a fault of your PC. 10 Minutes or so sounds to me like you are capturing at DV quality, producing 178MB every minute (ish) just after 10 minutes your PC throws a wobbly about file size...which by then is probably 3.99GB or ther abouts? does this sound right.

On PCs there are more than one type of file system format. If you are using FAT32 it cannot create a file larger than 4GB. The solution is to use the file system NTFS, then you can create any size of file. If you tell me what OS you have ...XP Win2K etc I may be able to help. There is an instruction to type into "Run" which changes the file system. If you have to change you main drive where the OS is you may have difficulty. It is usally reliable and save(i know loads of people that have done it, but it is at your own risk.

Cheers,
Duncan

Hey duncan , thanks for the reply. phew I'm glad that there is actually somebody who has that same type of camcorder.
I'm capturing the file in mpeg so the result is not a huge size of file. Currently I'm using Windows 2000 proffesional. I did saw in the imagemixer software website that you cannot capture more than 10 minutes only if you capture it in straight AVI. anyway I'm using the USB device for connecting my camcorder to the pc.
This problem is really frustrating . thanks for the reply . i really really appreciate you

You may have read the other post and guessed that you really need a firewire card (IEEE1394), it simply the only way to do it properly.... however I will try and have a go at recreating your problem this weekend and let you know if I have any ideas...

oh anyway I've tried to capture using VirtualDub and everything working just fine.....the capturing doesnt stop at all ...so I guess there is a prob with imagemixer. actually using Vdub is not bad at all...I guess I just need to get abigger hd since i gotta to capture in avi first. thanks again..and maybe I'll get a firewire card for my pc about next week. thanks. I find out that this forum is really a great source to learn since I'm a newbie. glad to join this forum
