How To Capture Video To Hard Drive


sebs3

Question

I recently purchased an external hard drive(seagate free agent pro) to store my edited productions and camera video onto rather than take up space on my hard drive. When I try to import video from my camcorder using the capture/import option and save it directly onto the external hard drive(:F), an error message appears saying you cannot save in the folder as specified please choose another location. I am forced to save it to my computer hard drive(:C) and then save it to the external hard drive(:F). Is there a reason why it won't directly transfer to the external hard drive? Will I be forced to take this extra step every time? Please Help. Thanks

Your external is formatted FAT 32. Format it as NTFS.

 

You are actually better off capturing to your internal hard drive, then transfer it to your external. By capturing directly to the external, you are sending the capture through two different types of cable. It does work, but IMHO, it is safer capturing to the internal.
