XDCam Transfer freezing up

Shot a bunch of interviews on EX-3 1080i/60 and transferred from sxs cards with Clip Browser on to portable hard drives, then transferred all those files to my tower intel Mac.

Trying to now wrap into Quicktime movies with XDCam Transfer and it is binding up. I have launched from FCP, selected clips, imported... as well as launched XDCam Tran directly and tried to do it that way. What happens is the clip imports all the way to 100%, then nothing.... the import bar sticks supered on the clip thumb saying 100%, and on the destination disk the QT movies says "in progress. The program is basically frozen, causing me to have to hard crash the computer.

Problem is sometimes I have been able to import directly correctly. Then not. Any suggestions where to look? Thanks.

Are you sure you've set your target disc correctly. I think it just freeze if you try to transfer to a disc that has no room.

I am now moving the same clips successfully on my laptop and portable drive using xdcam transfer.

On my studio Mac, I've discovered the process also works, if I am using xdcam transfer to wrap and save the files to the same drive the BPAV are stored on.

However, when I try to use xdcam to wrap them as Quicktime movies and save any of them to another drive (Caldigit HDPro Raid with 300 gb space left on it, more than enough), the import freezes at 100%, and I have to force quit the app, and hard crash the computer.

Anyone have any ideas why moving them to another destination disk should create a problem? Or is there some reason why the Caldigit HDPro wouldn't interface with the app?
