I would check into a couple of things first:
- What is the ASIO driver set to in PrE, for that USB headset? PrE has issues with some USB mics, but it sounds like you are beyond those, but are getting an ASIO error along the way. Some users have found that for ASIO driver support for Audio equipment, a free driver, ASIO4All, solves a lot of issues, with a wide range of equipment.
- What is the format of the HDD, to which the recording is being made? With Win7-64, I would assume NTSF, and not FAT-32, but because of file size limitations with FAT-32, I would like to rule that out as a culprit.
- What is the amount of free-space on the destination HDD?
I am sure that others will have more questions, and hopefully some concrete suggestions.
Also, do you have any real-time, active-scanning anti-virus, or anti-malware programs running? If so, I would turn all of those OFF, and test.
Same thing for Windows Indexing, though that function was improved in Win7. However, Windows Indexing has been known to lock files, as it attempts to index them for faster searches.
Just thinking here, and good luck,
ASIO=mic/line in/IDT high def . . . .
HD space=416 GB
It looks like Hunt answered the same type of question a while back but the user never followed up re: \src\win\asiohost.cpp-903
I worked with another user elsewhere with the same error message, and that turned out to be related to updating the audio card driver.
It is important to check out Edit Menu/Preferences/Audio Hardware ASIO settings and what is displayed for both Input and Output settings.
But, what I would really like to see is the screenshot of that Timeline when the error hits at your narration @ around 6 minutes, especially whats on any video tracks, audio tracks, and Soundtrack. Is the stop at about 30 seconds after the last clip on the tracks?
Looking forward to your follow up.
Thank you for your message. I shared it with the user having the problem. I will post the the screenshot when I receive it.
Thanks. We will be watching for the additional information. We want to rule in or out the narration duration issues as were highlighted in my blog post
Lots of possibilities to be rule in or out to get to the core of the matter.
The error messages described above have not reocurred. I reduced the number of items that start when the computer boots, in an attempt to provide more available RAM. In addition, the user deleted items from the hard drive to provide more space.
These actions do seem to have helped - that is, the prefetch/asiohost messages have not reocurred. Low memory messages occur, and appear to be random.
I forwarded to the user the links you provided. If the problem reoccurs, the user has instructions on how to capture the info you described above.
Thanks for your help.
Good news. Thanks.
Going along the troubleshooting lines that seem to have improved the situation, you might make sure that there is routine maintenance on the computer also targeted at:
Adobe Folder - Adobe Premiere Elements Preview Files Folder and preview files (they pile up quickly with rendering of the Timeline and take up a lot of hard drive space). Also, Media Cache Folder and the conformed audio files there (cfa and pek files).
Premiere Elements workspace Edit Menu/Preferences/Media and Media Cache Database and conformed video files. They pile up fast also. They can be cleaned out by clicking the Clean Button at that location.
Use of the ccleaner program (regular and registry cleaner sections). Has been a fast and safe way to clean up and optimize computer.
Hope the problem stays away, but, if not, please let us know, and we will think about this some more.
Thank you for your information. I forwarded it to the user.
I am familiar with CCleaner. The non-profit computer user group to which I belong (Front Range PC Users Group - http://www.frpcug.org) recommends it to everyone we talk to in our free help sessions and in the classes we teach.
In fact, I used CCleaner to reduce the start up programs.
