using the capture with the canopus converter

Apr 1, 2012 11:24 AM

The other day I was able to capture an dvd to it's end.  Today I'm working with another old dvd that I want to capture in CS4 however, it quits 18 mintutes into the capturing stating max amount has been captured. I think I may have my set points wrong. Can someone send me a visual of how these are suppose to look if the dvd is over an hour long. I would so appreciate it!

    18 minutes sounds like FAT32.

    If that is the case your drives need to be NTFS.

    http://aumha.org/win5/a/ntfscvt.php (maybe there are better sites, could not find one in English).

    Make sure you have a backup.

    OK buy a second external drive, format to ntfs and copy everything from the old one to the new one.

    Format old one and start over.

     

    Best is to capture to an internal drive.

    >save anything before I went into my computer and chose NTFS

     

    Using the instructions at the Microsoft link I posted, I have converted a half a dozen drives from FAT32 to NTFS and have had ZERO problem with data loss or corruption

     

    That is, of course, based on exactly following the Microsoft instructions

     

    You may have a drive with a hardware failure, if you are 100% sure you exactly followed the Microsoft instructions

     

    >copy files from one drive to the other. Copy and past?

     

    No, copy paste is when you are inside something like a word processor

     

    Using Windows Explorer you click and "drag and drop" a file (or folder) from one location to another

     

    >any hope to get all that information back if they reformat it?

     

    I don't know you, but it SEEMS you don't know much about computers

     

    When you format a drive, everything is lost

    Ask your computer tech about a drive recovery service... they are specialized and VERY expensive... no, I don't know the name of such a service

    >parner's son-in-law who is a computer tech

     

    Also talk to him about how to make file backups to another drive

     

    I have 3 internal hard drives, one of which contains all of my video files

     

    I also have 3 external USB hard drives... too slow for video editing, but great to rotate for file copies
