    Continuous crashes resolved

    This may be useful for folks who, as I was, are plagued with continuous crashes in MC and

    I'm working on a iMac 27" with 8 MB ram and OS X 10.6.5 (Yes, I know, but that's how I received it).

    Media consists 10 streams of multi-cam in 4:1m

    Anyway working with a Firewire 800 drive, I had  crash at least every ten minutes. It drove me nuts.

    Tried different drive. Firewire 400 drives. Nothing seemed to matter.


    Until I copied all media to the (only) internal drive ion the iMac, and all my problems are over.

    I know this is not the way it is supposed to work. But I have now been able to work hours on and without a single issue.

    Cutting with the viewing resolution is the highest setting and not dropping a frame. Go figure.


    Maybe there's an issue with a Firewire driver? Al the crashes had IO routines in their crash report, so it seems to make sense. 


    Hope this helps. Merry Christmas everybody!
