  • dreaded "disk too slow"

    I captured two 1 hour tapes last night of 720P HDV footage with no problem on desktop AMD FX60 Edius 4.54. Today I tried to capture 35 minutes of 1080i from Canon XH-A1 (camera as deck) with the "disk too slow" error. I easily captured the 1080i footage on my laptop MBP17 Core Duo (Bootcamp) Edius 4.24.
    On the desktop system speedfan showed both cores maxed out at 100% when trying to capture 1080i. Both systems I was capturing Canopus HQ.
    On desktop drive was SATAII with 170 gig free, laptop was USB drive.
    Is 1080i that much more CPU intensive than 720p?
    I also noticed that splash screen on laptop says "2 processors" while the desktop splask screen says "2 logical processors." does the difference mean anything?

    There is a post here somewhere about this. It changed during one of the upgrades. Jason Ramsey was the poster.

      dreaded "disk too slow"

      check the HDV "input settings" to make sure it is on 1440x1080 Canopus HQ

      I don't mean project settings

          I checked all input, project and capture settings, also tried all the suggestions in Jason's thread. Still no luck. I changed to MPEG TS and the preview was jumpy but it captured fine. I'll just leave 4.24 on laptop to capture for now.

            considering how many users get the "disk too slow" error, I must admit that the problem may be Edius related, especially since most users report that the error did not happen in older versions prior to 4.5

            they don't make disks that are too slow anymore, I think it is an incorrect error and it is meant to say something else

            it reminds me of the QuickTime Player 7.2 and 7.3 "buffer overrun error" that millions windows users are reporting on apple forums, including myself, I went back to 7.1 and the error is gone

                It is an Edius problem, and one they are taking their time to fix.
                Its in V4.54 as well. I just captured 40 mins of SD DV to canopus HQ without any problems.
                Changed tape got the "disk too Slow" error.
                I clicked on the timeline, played a few seconds of what was on there, tried to capture again, perfect for the entire 30 mins of tape.
                Its is so annoying
                System 1 - Win7 64/Edius 5.51/Asus P8/8Gb RAM/RAID0/i7 2600K OC/nVidia Quadra 600
                System 2 - Win XP/Edius v4.61/Asus P5 DH Deluxe/4Gb RAM/RAID0/Quad Core 2.4Ghz Q6600/nVidia 9800GT 512Mb/NXHD + other stuff

                  I'm having the same problems.... Captured 1Hr. 25mins. from composite input to SD. Got "disk too slow" error. The capture file was unusable in Edius. Rebooted and the file suddenly became usable. Redid the capture (total time was 2hrs. 5mins.) and it worked. The problem is definitely in Edius. I never (ever) had this problem prior to 4.5.
