Help!!!

I have a LaCie Big Disk Extreme 400gb HD. It has 92 gigs free out of 375. After I dumped new footage onto it, and then started editing, I began to notice black-picture dropouts in the new footage. I then went back and opened up a scene that I edited a week ago, and the picture was completely hay wire. The image would go from this multi-color pattern, to freezing, to black. And the sound is stuttering to. What does this mean? Will defragmenting simply solve this problem. Or is my HD dying? Thank.

Sounds very odd Glenn. I have been having a lot of problems with my hard drive now. I just installed a new one and as I installed the new one my other one mucked up and I had to format it so I could get it to work again.

Now I have all of my software and such back on there but I cannot bring myself to putting important video back on there, yet.

In time I should be able to but Im really paranoid and I keep thinking every noise that my computer makes is my hard drive mucking up again. It's not fun at all.

I hope it isn't your hard drive and just some software problem.

That has never happened to me so I can't help you much, but I wish you the best of luck.
