I would try WinDV for capture, it uses very few resources.
Be sure to check all of your power settings and screen saver too.
Could be that your hard disks are set to turn off after 1 hour or something. Windows can't always tell that there is a process running and it shouldn't go into Standby, so check all of those settings to make sure that they are all set to 'Never'.
You can create a separate Power Profile for Windows just for capture if you want to and save it ;)
Thanks for your fast reply,
I will try WinDV. What I'm looking for is something really stable, because I'm recording classes, so I don't have "take 2". What I miss, I just miss it.
For the power settings, I was already at "5 hours" or "never", so it's not the problem. And since I only have this problem with PE4 and not WinMovieMaker, it should not be a Windows setting, but who knows?
I'll try WinDV and I'll continue to look for something.
If WinDV doesn't work I don't know what will. If you didn't have any problems with Movie Maker you would be using it. Might not be the exact same problem but could be the exact same issue that causes problems with both ;)
Hey I guess this problem can come because of 2 reasons:
1: External hard-drives
2: You are recording in "scene detect" mode.
as I have done the same many a times and it was stable as well! You can check this as well. May be it will help.
