PDW-U1 write back problem!!!

Hello,

I use Canopus Edius V 4.61 for editing Sony MXF (SD - DV) files recorded in PDW-F335 and 330 cameras. After the editing I render the timeline in XDCAM DV format and need to write this file back to XDCAM DISCS (Blu-ray) using the PDW-U1 drive!!! Sometimes this routine does OK, sometimes not.
I tried copying trough Windows Explorer, trough the UPLOAD utility in Edius and also trough the Sony PDZ-1 software. When the copy fails the disc becomes corupted so I need to use U1 Utility and make a DISC RECOVERY. After this the disc becomes OK again. Then i try to copy the file that failed and it goes OK.
I've made many tests and this happen in different drives (pdw-u1), different NLE´s with different files.

My system runs the latest version of ALL Sony softwares:
- PDZ-1 ver. 2.40
- FAM Driver ver. 2.04
- PDZ-VX10 ver. 2.1 (XDCam Viewer)
- PDW-U1 firmware ver. 2.065 (the one that allows writing back to discs)

Does anyone here experience the same problem?????? Any solution?

Thanks a lot

Hi

I am not experienced in Edius+U1, but make sure your file matches the typical clip names from the xdcam units (c0001.mxf etc.).

Could that work?

The software U1 Utility, bundled with the drive allows to configure the default file types. It can be set to "C000x" or "free". But the problem occurs in both cases!

Tks.
