While transfering digital video onto the hard (I have an external drive for video only) I notice some dropped frames if I record the same again no frames are dropped my dv capture card is afirewire 400 dv pci would the new 8oo dv pci help my computer is a Mesh 1800 3 years old running xp home all suggestion welcome
The problem is not the firewire card. The standard firewire card is fast enough for the transfer of video. I have a 1GHz Athlon and have only experienced dropped frames on occassions where the tape was kinked. Normally I don't get any.
To start with I could not successfully transfer video and I implemented some of the tweaks as recommended click here and have had no problems since.
