  • System lock up Edius 7.5

    We are have a problem with external drives locking up the computer when using Edius. We are connected by FW800 to either G-drive or western Digital. Edius opens fine but when we scrub the time line the system freezes up. We have to power down and restart. This will happen 2 or 3 times then everything runs fine. When we use the internal drive nothing locks up. I have reinstalled the drivers for the FW card, with no luck.

    Firewire connected drives are terrible for editing

    try USB3 or esata, internal will be best

    you can now buy external USB3 SSD and they do around 350MB/sec read and write

      I agree with Anton. The throughput is probably too slow.

        What drives are you using inside your external boxes? If they are WD Green, then they shut down after a while to economise on power useage. They take time to spin up again when accessed. This makes EDIUS seem to freeze. The problem can be overcome by using software which keeps the WD Green drives spinning by accessing them every few minutes (3mins is recommended)....

        However, you may not have WD Green drives. As already mentioned, Firewire can be problematic too.

          I'd have to agree with Anton, get drives with a faster interface. Firewire 800 was never good for editing purposes, the main interface was always too slow to get things going even if you had decent drives in the boxes

            Our problem is we have been using FW800 for years and have several client drives that use FW800 these are older drives that only have USB2, so our solution will be to upgrade two of our systems to USB3 (one already is) keeping FW800 and all new clients we'll be using USB3 drives. Thanks for all your help.

              you may even get better editing performance from USB2 than firewire 800

              yes, USB3 would be your solution for external for the way forward

              in my case, I use the hotswap tray for naked drives and I store all clients on naked SATA drives for future editing if needed

              the same hotswap tray also accepts SSD via special adapter, all without tools
              http://www.mwave.com.au/product/icy-...lastic-aa12781

              if your mobo port is set correctly for hotswap, you don't need to shut down when changing drives

              I then store the disks in special storage cases that hold 5 each

                to set hotplug correctly, be sure you select the port where the hotplug tray is connected

                make sure the port is a Sata6 capable port

                then enable hotplug and make sure external sata is disabled or you lose half its speed (SSD would only read/write at 250MB sec, wheras if set correctly, it will read and write over 500MB/sec
