    Database error when reading P2 cards

    I run NewscutterXP v_6.7.7 on an Avid certified HP XW8200 workstation with Mojo SDI attached. Lately I have had an intermittent problem when reading P2 cards. Once or twice a week I get an error "A database error occurred when scanning the file 'E:\Contents\Audio\00019V01.MXF'. There are 2 variables to the error which are the drive letter and the filename. The problem is not specific to any of the 5 drive letters (E:, F:, G:, H:, I:) associated with my AJ-PCD20 P2 card reader.  In the error window there are choices to abort, quarantine or ignore. As a workaround I found that I can:

    1. Abort

    2. File>Unmount (and select the drive that gave the error)

    3. Re-insert the P2 card everything scans without error.


    I've tried recreating PMR files for all drives, reinstalling P2 drivers, swapping out P2 readers and even went as far as reinstalling NCXP. All had no effect on the problem.

    Does anyone have any thoughts on how to fix this??

    Re: Database error when reading P2 cards

    This forum is for older Meridien and ABVB systems.  For best results, you should try your request
    to the Broadcast Newsroom group.  That being said, If  you can see the P2 media in the media tool
    select and drag to a bin.  Then consolidate the P2 media onto one of your stripes.
