    More on 'jerking' or missing frames


      My video importing process is as follows:


      1. From camera to PMB (SONY provided software) on the laptop, where I register, auto-analyze and trim clips. The clips are automatically recorded on the D Drive of the laptop (AVCHD + modd + moff files).

      2. Copy from the laptop's D Drive into external drive.

      3. Copy from the external drive to the(dedicated to video projects)  C Drive on my PC at home.

      4. Select and copy files as required to a range of projects.


      Probably the weakest link in this process is the external drive.


      Could it be that the slow way of transfer to and from the external drive causes some frames to drop??


      Don't know - this is just my speculation. What do you think?
