I'm using shotput in the field to download my cards onto two drives. Unless I am missing something and don't know where to access it, the downside of shotput is not being able to screen any of the clips so on the occasions I am in a muddle, and I must admit I have yet to find a way to organise myself well enough not to have to check each card six times before I reformat. Note to self, must take an afternoon to work out a less flawed field workflow.

FYI, ShotPut Pro 3 and The Executive Producer-HD edition (aka TEPHD) have just been released and include full Windows 7 support. TEPHD provides logging and metadata and playback of native BPAV/MP4 files.

This package looks very interesting; so, if anyone has experience with TEPHD in particular, let us know what you think. FYI, TEPHD is the name for the Windows version of 'HDLog' (Mac version).

I bought shot put pro. Setting up multiple drives for unatended tx is a good thing and it does seem to be faster for multiple drive transfers.

A few things to note.
The time-to-go is totally bogus, it jumps all over the place. It would be nice to know how much time is really left in the transfer process.

The support person at Shot Put said "nobody uses the error detection setting, only the feature that compares file sizes". Really? Is comparing file size enough of a safety measure?
