Sending HDV to Stock Footage Company. How?

I recently sent a hard drive with my HDV footage to my stock footage folks, and apparently it was damaged in transit and they couldn't get my stuff off. What is another way to send this footage(tape won't do--they don't have the equipment). Data DVD was mentioned, but I'm unfamiliar with this. Anyone have answer/explanation? Please be specific, as computer knowledge is not my forte. Thanks,

What you could do is burn your files (the same ones that were on your hard drive) to a DVD instead.

You don't make a DVD, you just store the files on the DVD like you would a CD, that is what a data DVD is.

If you have Nero, there is an option for DATA DVD. It allows you to write files as you would to your hard drive or floppy (when they were still around)

Hope this helps,

Jim

James,

I appreciate your response. I have Toast 7, and I believe that will do it. What I don't know is how to get the files(where are they?)to the right place. Is this something you're familiar with? Thanks again.--Porter

I am going to go on an assumption here that you are using FCP. I guess this because your rendered out a .mov file. If I am mistaken, I am sorry. However here goes....

Take your project and split it into two parts each about 21 minutes. Then export each sequence as a self contained movie keeping the same properties as your original. You can then burn these to DVD Roms. So long as your stock footage house has FCP, they should be able to copy your files on to a hard drive and open them directly to FCP with out any rendering.

No need to make DVD data disc.

Just send the DV tape wrapped with some bubble plastic sheet.

We get footage on DVD-rom all the time.
You can render to Quicktime using the native codec.
