I have a Sony TRV240 Digital 8 camcorder onto which I transfer digital video that I have eidted on my PC using Pinnacle Studio 7 software. Every so often (and that might be once or twice in a transfer 5 minutes long) the computer appears to hesitate for a moment meaning that I lose a few frames of recorded video. When played back on the camcorder this looks and sounds like a hiccup in the tape - momentary loss of sound etc. My computer has a 1300 processor, twin 40 gigabyte hard discs - admittedly there is a lot of other stuff on these discs, but I first started using "enditall" to close all unwanted programmes before video editing, and now I use msconfig.exe to boot up with the startup group disabled so that nothing else runs. Any ideas what else I can do. Is there any more information about my set up I should provide here to enable someone to advise a solution?
