    is it really power supply kind pf thing?
    lately,edius always crash everytime i try to change quick titler in HDtimeline... bcoz i only have maxtor 320gig and 500gig + geforce 8400 + dvd writter in this AMDX2 6000+ PC (2gig RAM)
    the power supply is 500w (don't know the real out put though)
    I would not format a video drive using the default cluster size, I always use the largest possible

    default is fine for the C drive and other (small file size) file storage drives

      hi anton.tx i'll format in the biggest cluster,hope it will solve.
      should i unplug the jumper too (release the 1,5gig hardisk limitation)?
      one more thing,hope u could help me...i have such a bad time dealing with Title in my HD timeline.
      edius always crash n go back to window..always!..it such a pain!
      i've upgrade display card to ATI2600 512mbDDR2,128-bit but the problem still exist..i change the memory..even i re-installed the windows vista it doesn't solve it.
      is it my edius 4.51c? it has never been a problem in SD project.
      desperately need info from u

        I built a new editing PC for myself bringing the hard drives from my old built to the new build and for the first time ever, I'm getting the disk drive too slow message during capture of my SD DVCam footage. (I'm capturing using OHCI) I was using Edius 4.6 and the DV Capture utility program before problem free.

          I never leave the jumper on

          I think you should upgrade to Edius 4.61 (free) or Edius 5.1 soon (not free)

            Disk to slow message again and capturing to a different HD as well.

              I'm using an external SATA drive (Vantec NexStar). I've had several disk too slow messages. I've defragged, but I'm not sure that makes a big difference in NTFS.

              What I think does make a difference is rebooting and shutting down all unnecessary stuff in the task tray. Virus scanner, Quicktime, and all other unneeded background processes. I'm sure that one session failure was caused by the virus scanner.

              As money permits, I'm going to try booting from a bare minimum Windows installation. Having an external SATA drive means I can have multiple Windows installations without running into activation issues. An alternative is to replace the C drive with one that has multiple partitions and install Windows on each partition, installing just the bare minimum of programs on each partition. From many years experience, I'm convince that Windows slows down as you install more programs.

                Fragmentation is an issue no matter what filesystem you use, unless you write files once and never modify them. Never figured out where the myth that NTFS doesn't need to be defragged came from... Probably the same place the myth that RAID arrays don't need to be defragged came from.

                  I REALLY think this issue has something to do with the users RAM.

                  I added 8 more gigs of RAM and kept getting the Disk too Slow warning. I re-arranged the ram modules, but the problem keeps coming back.

                  Will do some more checking.

                    Disk to Slow

                    Well I am just completing another Tax Preparation year and today I took some time and visited my editing studio. I cannot capture video. I just can't do it. I have tried everything I know possible but nothing seems to work. I have used the AVHC110 and it will capture about 2 to 5 minutes and then I get the same old message, Disk to Slow. Before I upgraded to 4.6 I never had a problem capturing, never! I see now we are up to 6 pages of posts for the same problem. Is anyone doing anything about it at Grass Valley? It has to be a software programming glitch which may not affect various MB/CPU combinations. Even Rex Edit was great compared to what I am now experiencing. I intend to call Grass Valley tomorrow and find out what, if anything they are doing to fix the problem. I suggest others do the same!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                      Disk to Slow

                      SOLVED!!! I believe. Did a repair of WinXP. Didn't help but then I did a restore for this same day, April 13. Works of now. I don't know why but that's ok too. Will let everyone know if the bug returns.

                        Well, it's not that easy, it happened also under Vista, for me the "fix" is a making overlay windows small... really small. I believe the whole problem is about a overlay process, that's why it never occur with Edius 4.0 or 3.x.
                        Believe me 3chip, it is not solved! And I don't think it is a good idea to call GV, those poor guys has nothing to do with it. If you want to speak with real guys, try to speak japanese... :)

                          Disk to Slow

                          I agree that "Solved" is simply an instantaneous thing, a fleeting moment perhaps, perhaps several weeks! I am not going to call but let me put it this way, in the haste to program and get a product out a programmer or programmers neglected something. I didn't do it! They did it! I paid their asking price for the software which is claimed to be a right to use it not own it. I have been with Canopus from ever since time began........just ask Hiro. But this is a problem related to Edius not a problem related to my computer viewing screens. I can do all things related to capture in PP! But I don't want to nor ever wanted to use PP. A long time ago PP came bundled with Rex Editbut it was just too complicated for me. As I've said time and time again, I just want to edit video, I don't wish to be a systems analyst or programmer. Been there done that in the era of punch cards. But Grass Valley is Grass Valley and Canopus USA is one and the same as Japan's Grass Valley.

                            Disk to Slow

                            Well solved it wasn't! My capture started acting up again. After two days of trying to straighten out the problem again, one of my external Maxtor 500GB One Touch drives crashed. I disconnected it and now all is well again. This drive had been noisy for awhile and I suspect it was intermittently failing. Finally the light went out and it was over. During this latest episode my OS was acting corrupted, losing track of my other HD's and giving me warning messages that all data was lost on several of them. Disconnected the drive and everything is back to normal...................until next time!

                              Disk too slow error

                              First of all : Excuse my english
                              I also met the "disk too slow error" and tried many solutions like creating a Raid0 array with no success. In fact I used a computer with Asus P5LD2 board fitted with a P4, 3,2Ghz, which is an Hyper-Threading processor which means virtual dual core instead of real dual core. When looking at the performance window, I observed that the "two" cores were 100% loaded and, of course, the "disk too slow error" appeared after a short time (less than 1 minute). Obviously it came from a buffer overrun error rather than a disk problem. As this mother board was only able to support Pentium 4 or Pentium D, the last one being a real dual core, I bought a bargain Pentium D (3,4 Ghz) and fitted it with a large Zalman ventirad instead of the genuine Intel fan. Now I can capture any length of HDV footage directly with Canopus HQ codec, with the two (real) cores of the processor 60 or 70% loaded and a lower core temperature ( Max 45 to 50°) during HDV.

                                Captured to hard drive again, only this time I'm using the DVCapture utility and didn't get the drive too slow message.
