Big problems with DR-HD100 footage

I did a shoot last night with my HD100 connected to the DR-HD100. Shooting DV, 24p (as I always do with no problems). It was at an acoustic concert, followed by some clips at one of the musician's house. The clips from the concert are horrible choppy and basically worthless. The footage from the house is perfect.

No settings were changed on the camera, and the drive was formatted immediately before I starting the shoot at the concert.

I tried "repair clip" and it did nothing.

I can post an example of the footage if it would help.

Anyone else experience this? I've left a message at FE tech support about the issue.

Thanks!!!!

I have had similar experiences with mine as well and was able to determine it was do to an extremely loud environment. In my case it was a heavy metal band and i was at the very front of the stage. In your case being an acoustic set i am guessing sound was not a major issue.

Thanks for the reply. I've used this for much louder things than this and never had a problem. Some of the footage from the house afterwards was extremely loud and that footage is fine.

I'm really stumped.

The DR_HD100 is a spinning hard drive. Sounds (acoustics) of particularly resonating frequencies can mess with this. Doesn't necessarily have to be super loud, just particular wave lenght and loud enough.

Lots of potential problems on any spinning disc based shoot when music is involved, always best to be recording to tape in such situations if possible (or in the case of other cameras, such as the RED ONE, solid state like compact flash).
