Sometimes there isn't a magic button. Sometimes you gotta gut it out and dig around in the muck (yikes, what a mixed metaphor!).

Black Viper is an amazing site and it really shouldn't take you too long to figure out what can be disabled. Go in stages and shut a few things down and try to capture again. Stop when it works. That way you'll be less likely to shut down something essential.

I can't think of a specific but compare your preferences to V4 to make sure there isn't something obvious.

How full is your external drive? How fragmented is it? Does your Firewire device share an IRQ with any other device?

Finally, did you swap Firewire cables lately? Got another one that you can try? A bad one can give all kinds of weird symptoms.

Good luck. Let us know what it was when you resolve it.
