I'll check for that pass-through setting...I knew it had to be something like that! As for Stowe...autumn is fantastic. However, when it hits -35 in January, SoCal will sound pretty good! Thanks for the info.

Never done this before, don't want to mess up

I just got a 120GB LaCie d2 hard drive. What do I have to do to format it, if at all? (I've go an eMac with OS 10.2)
Any additional advice is welcome.

Thank you.

This is easy. Go to your Applications Folder>Utilities Folder>Disk Utility>Start Program.

In the left hand window your new drive should appear. Click once on it, to highlight the drive.

If you want to partition the drive click the Partition Tab. Set up the size and names of the partitions and when ready click the partition button in the lower right.

If you want to use OS 9 click the box to enable OS 9 drivers.

RAM Recommendations?

I'd like to at least double the amount of RAM in my dual 1 Ghz G4 (mirrored drive doors, noisy fans, DDR RAM, etc). Is there any particular brand of RAM that is recommended that will get along with what is already installed? Also are there any particular dealers (online) recommended with good prices and reliable service?

Thanks.

Actually I am looking for RAM for the Mac (described above), not an NT system. Thanks.

Anyway you have a link to this "chip merchant"? What is it? can anyone recommend specific RAM?

The RAM you want is probably kingston or crucial. Anyways, no one needs to remember this. Pretend you are buying "mac RAM" (google search that) and find I site where you have to enter in what your Mac is. You will find the RAM that is from the right manufacturer (generic doesn't count, stay away from that), speed (DDR-something), and brand (manufacturers usually have high performance RAM and normal RAM- you probably want the normal RAM because you don't get an advantage from better RAM).

newegg.com has good prices for computer parts (don't know about RAM). crucial.com has an online store for crucial RAM. There are some "hot deals" websites around on the internet if you can wait for a hot deal.

Thank you for your reply, Jeff.

Actually there was no need for me to format the drive because it comes preformatted. So all I had to do was to plug it in.

Found 1 file that doesn't belong in this project?

Done search on this but wasn't able to find an answer.

I just copied 3 short video projects from my eMac's hard drive to my external Lacie d2 120GB drive. Now whenever I open two of these projects (either from my eMac's internal HD or from the Lacie one) , I get the following message in iMovie 2.1.2:

"Found 1 file that does not belong in this project"

And it asks me whether I want to trash that file or leave it alone. So far I have chosen the "Leave the file alone" option. The project nevertheless seems to function properly. I have been using iMovie for some 6 months now and never had any problem.

Can anyone guess why I'm getting this message? Is there a solution to/workaround for this?

Any help will be greatly appreciate it.

Thank you.

Well, yes, that would have been a way to relosve this issue. However, I have checked the media folder and found no file that doesn't belong to my project. In other words, all the files in the media folder are being used.

end media?!?

I'm exporting a clip thats going to be played on television. So end time must be specific. In my timeline i have the clips ending at 28m.30s. But my "End media" is up till 28.31? so when i export the clips into a single quicktime file it says my clips are total time of 28.31, but they arnt!? I'm very confused over this, cause now i have to edit out a portion of the ending of the show, and it makes the ending, end just a little too quickly. Can someone help with why it does this? and how can i fix it?!!

Thanks in advance,
Todd

What editing platform are you using? (Mac or PC? Final Cut Pro? Avid? Premiere? Vegas?)

How are you performing the export from your editor?
