Vegas captures hundreds of tiny mt2 files

I've searched the forum (and Google) and I can find several people that have this problem, but no solution.

When I try to capture HDV from my JVC HD100U, Vegas captures hundreds of tiny files, each just a few seconds. It doesn't matter if I have HDV Scene Detection on or off, it does it every time.

Is there a solution for this bug?

BTW, I've tried HDVSplit, and that's worse - it only saves a file with the last few seconds of what I've captured.

Just curious about something....

In the videocapture application, is the "Enable Device Control" setting checked? If so, turn it off and see if that helps.

v8.0b.

I've found the problem. I was trying to capture onto an eSATA drive. When I switched to an internal drive it worked as expected. I thought eSATA was supposed to be as fast as an internal SATA drive, but I guess not.

It may not be the speed that's the problem. It may be more related to interrupt conflicts or other unknown factors.

Edward is of course correct...esata is fine...and fast...but if your controller is flaky somehow you could have issues.

I've had that problem a few times with the same camera, Vegas 8, and a fairly fast computer with internal drives.

It doesn't happen often, but I've noticed that it does it less if I hit play, then pause, then record, rather than just hitting record, while in video capture.

bump.... this is definitely a capture bug. I have the same problem in the topic:

http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/what-happ...-new-post.html

I'm finding that the hardware is not fast enough for the capture. However, the software should NOT be doing a faulty capture, it should be reporting errors. Instead it is blissfully ignoring things and just randomly crapping out clips.

Dave, CapDVHS is another capture utility that's been recommended onother forums.
It's a Japanese site but there's an English link for the file download.
