Sorry if this is in the wrong forum but after a few searches most of the threads seemed to be in here. :blush: Anyway on with my problem, I'm trying to do some video editing & I'm having mega problems when trying to capture the dv video via firewire (computer hangs, picture is fuzzy, sound is distorted etc), Ive searched & posted on the video editing forums & tried all the help but to no avail, my friend mentioned something about virtual memory & when doing searches it does seem that this need addressing when doing video editing. My system comprises of : 2 * 512mb DDR PC3200 400MHz 184pin Extra Value 1 x AMD Athlon XP3200+ 400mhz FSB 512 L2 Cache Barton CPU - OEM 1 x PcChips M848ALU SKT A SIS 748 400 DDR AGPx8 ATA133 6CH Sound/lAN/USB 2.0 will Take Upto a 3.2+ AMD Athlon XP And Sempron CPU's Retail Box 1 x Geoforce XFX 5200 graphics card 1 X Firewire card 2 hard drives of which 1 is 20g & the other 60g which is partioned so that I have a 20g & 40g. I have not touched any settings for virtual memory so it's still set up (I think) as min 2m & max 1024m. Can anyone suggest what I need to do to get my system set up so that I can start capturing video properly???
