I am new to digital video. Here's my setup. I've got a Dell Latitude Pentium III w/500 mb of memory runnign Win2000. Using a Margi 1394 to go pcmcia card, a sony trv520 and I just bought a Evergreen fireline 40 GB hotdrive (1394 enabled) promised to run at 7200 rpm. I'm using MGI's Videowave IV.

Here's the problem. When I output to DV camera via my internal hard drive I have not problem. When I output to my camera using the external 1394 Evergreen, I get lost frames and choppy output. Any thoughts? I had the same problem with a western digital 5400 rpm drive which I returned. Any thoughts?
