FCP export error

When exporting FCP sequences back to disc I get a FCP error that says

Export Failed
Final Cut Pro: Error writing to file

I have a F335 and in the past, although quite a while ago, I was able to export a FCP sequence to the F335 using FAM and the XDCAM export option within FCP.

The sequence in question is a DVCAM 525i. The audio is correct at 4 channels, the disc and camera are at the settings the program was shot, it is even the same disc with enough room to hold the FCP sequence.

The audio had to be changed to 4 channel mono.

I've also tried exporting a 1080p back to the field disc with the camera setup in 1080i and get the same error.

The F335 imports files fine.

The XDCAM importer and exporter are version 2.8.0

The FCP version is 6.0.6

Any ideas what I'm missing?

How long is the sequence? You are limited to Fat32's 4Gb file size restriction which is about 15 mins at 25Mb/s.

Other things to check: Did you select MXF and not mp4 in the exporter?

Problem fixed

I've got the FCP export of program sequences via XDCAM to F335 disc working. I downloaded the new version of Sony's XDCAM transfer, 2.10, and that made all the difference. I'm back in business.

The program is 14:47 in length. I didn't realize there was a limit to sequence lengths. I've got a few more programs to archive to disc and will have to break them up due to length. Not a big deal but good to know. Thanks for the tip.
