where to buy disks after earthquake?

there are no more XDCAM disks available in Australia due to the earthquake in Japan which destroyed a major components factory

where do you still get disks outside Australia?

I've looked all over Los Angeles for XDCAM disks and haven't been able to find them either. Every store I've talked to has said that they don't have any and they don't know when to expect another shipment.

Re: where to buy disks after earthquake?

I have stopped supplying XDcam discs to my clients that I am shooting for. I am now shooting on a disc and let the client take it to copy and backup on hard drive (same as they would for an F3, EX3 P2 etc) then return the disc to me.

My XDcam disc supplier says there is still no official word of when any new XDcam discs might start shipping. He was hinting that it may be 2 or 3 months before he recieves any.

Cheers, Tim

Re: where to buy disks after earthquake?

rg. handing files to clients or archiving files "only":

My strong recommondation is to use camera file naming ("naming: free" + title") and give unique names.
Otherwise if you collect dozens of disc and collect it on a harddrive you will end up with dozens of clips with the same (!) filename - thats getting weird in your NLE.

Also be aware that if you copy files from XD to harddrive and back to another XD (later) , youŽll end up with a different disk ID (serial number) that could generate problems with AVID Media Composer "classic" mode or other NLEs that sort files with the disk serial number (aka Tape Name).
