  • VMWare Fusion Problem

    I'm running the new Macbook Pro 2.8ghz, 4.0g ram and I'm not able to get Edius working right. Whenever I click play in either the preview window or on the timeline the cursor jumps to the end, plays about 1 second of audio (without displaying any video) and stops.

    I'm running windows through VMWare Fusion and the video I'm trying to view is on an external hard drive. If I boot straight to windows Edius runs fine, but I cannot access my hard drive since it's formatted to my mac. I guess that means something's wrong with Fusion?

    Any ideas?

    EDIUS can't read off HFS drives, as far as I know. (users of Parallel/Mac Drive have also reported this)

        An alternative to the aforementioned MacDrive is Paragon's NTFS OSX driver which enables you to read and write to NTFS drives from OSX (and the latest version comes with a HFS reader for bootcamp.) Some rumours are suggesting that Snow Leopard is bringing HFS read and write support for bootcamp!

          Snow Leopard (Few months away) is going to have native NTFS read/write. I hope Windows 7 follows suit witH HFS+ support.

            Alternatively, you can look at MacDrive, a commercial package to install under Windows a device driver that allows Windows to access HFS and HFS+ partitions.

              Except that, as reported in my first reply, EDIUS doesn't play nice with HFS at all. :)
