    I have this problem and no ammount of trouble shooting will help. Furthermore.. I just captured 8 tapes successfully, now the 9th tape (all filmed exactly the same) just will not capture..

    A 6 year old PC is old by current standards. But if it worked before, and does not work now for the SAME type of capture, something has changed for the worse.

    Describe your system in detail. Make, model, processor, memory, OS, drives and configuration, other running software (including AV) and what you are trying to capture, how it is connected, what software you are using to capture, to what format you are tryign to capture, etc.

    Unfortunately none of these solutions have worked for me.

    I've had this computer for 6 years and it used to capture fine, it's only been the last few months that it has had trouble capturing.
    The computer is not having trouble, and i have done a full format and reinstall of windows and edius to no avail :(

    I never got the Disk too slow error message before, see my posts here.

    It looks like I only got the disk to slow message when I captured from within Edius, not when I used the DVCapture utility.


    I now record onto SxS cards BTW.

    Capturing HDV goes without problems.

    Has the bug been found?


    Just curious, did you capture from with-in Edius or the DVCapture utility?

    any updates on this?

    Any progress been made with this error message? I have been forced to capture my HDV with Vegas and then import the m2t files into Edius 5.12.
    All other capture formats work fine and I don't want to down grade to a 4.5 version. I prefer to move forward...

    Aloha,

    after upgrading to 4.61 most of my system have been working better now.
    except my macbook C2D 2.0 (bootcamp)
    capture DV via firewire is good
    capture HDV the annoying message appear..i did several suggestion that this thread share... finally this is what i did:
    uninstall edius 4.61 and downgrade to edius 4
    SAME machine,SAME fire wire cable,SAME extrnal hardisk,
    DIFFERENT version of edius ;) the "disk to slow" is GONE!
    now, i have captured more than 12 hours wedding HDV with no problems
    hope this help.
    (what on earth this "disk to slow" coming from?)

    Disk to slow message again and capturing to a different HD as well.
    Captured to hard drive again, only this time I'm using the DVCapture utility and didn't get the drive too slow message.

    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.
