i want to get a big hdd for editing my video files on, what is the biggest i can have with w98se. will use 20gb hdd for w98se and program files then big hdd (on slave or secondary ide) for editing video files.
I had a few probs dv editing with 120gb on 98se. I split it up into 3 partitions with good results. (I could be wrong - and it won't be the 1st time - but with dv being so resource draining it's best to keep the hd space to 40/50gb). Or you could format it in ntsf and there's no max prob. This is the prefered format for dv as there's no 4gb max file size.
With 98SE I'm using 80Gb (no partition) for DV files and editing, with no problems. I've read elsewhere in this forum that 120Gb could give you problems with 98, and should be partitioned into two or more.
