Corrupt clips crazy

I just finished a 3 camera shoot with 3 JVC 100 with 1 - DR HD-100 and 2- FS4 Pro's. I've used all three of them on another 3 camera shoot last week and no problem. This weekends shoot though, the 2 FS-4 Pro's had numerous corrupt clips. One had 12 corrupt clips and the other had 6. All the drives were formatted before filming and no settings had been changed whatsoever. Does anyone have any suggestions? Has this happened to anyone else. I have had it happen the odd time maybe if there was a break in power or sketchy firewire connection but this many was just ridiculous. All cameras were on tripod so there wasn't even any shaking around or any chance of the firewire being knocked.

Thank-you in advance.

For anything disk related, try running SpinRite on the drive. You'll have to pull the drive from the unit and attach it to your computer (or put it in a laptop which has a bootable floppy or CD drive) and let SpinRite do its stuff. If there are bad sectors on the disk, SpinRite will fix it and you'll be good to go.

If you don't think it's disk related, then I probably can't help, sorry! But it's good to run SpinRite once in a while as preventative maintenance anyway. I use it on all my drives, especially new drives before I place any trust in them. It examines every sector, does multiple reads, writes and rewrites, and will mark bad sectors that even the OS can't see.
