    I installed an internal second hard drive today as somewhere to download DV from my camcorder. The drive I installed was a Western Digital 120GB 7200 rpm drive.

    I had assumed that this would be fine for video capture but Pinnacle 9.4 says that it cannot capture to the drive because "the data rate on drive F: is less than the required rate of 4213 kbyte/sec". I also tried Ulead 9 and this captures choppy, jerky video to the drive.

    Have I installed the wrong drive for video capture or is something else going wrong?

    I have a Dell Dimension 2400 running XP SP2 home with a 40GB 1st drive (that captures perfect video but is running out of space!).

    The details of the exact hard disc I installed can be found here: drive specs

    Anyone able to help?? :lease:

    I've managed to answer my own question. Found the answer here on Western Digital's site:

    I had to change a setting in the BIOS and everything now works OK. :smashin:
