P2 import problem - solved but still mysterious

Advertisement

I posted yesterday about my P2 files that had imported before but suddenly did not - with that scary "incomplete or corrupt file" message.
I keep a cloned backup of my OS and all software on another drive that can be "cloned" back into my main drive. (great software- Carbon Copy Cloner - downloadable shareware, but leave the kind creator a donation.) It takes time to clone everything but not nearly as long as starting from scratch with disks, numbers and a zillion fixes and updates. Just be very careful to save everything like user files and desktop stuff.
Now, starting again with the pre-problem "cloned" osx and fcp, which are back to 10.4.6 and 5.0.4, the P2 files are importing perfectly again. So clearly the problem was not "incomplete or currupt" files, but some mysterious software glitch that occured in OSX or FCP? If anybody has any thoughts, I would love to dig deeper into this mystery in case it happens again. Meanwhile, if you are told that your P2s are "incomplete or corrupt" and you haven't messed with the locks or txt file at all, don't despair. Wouldn't it be nice to get an error message that said "Whoops - no idea what's goin' wrong honey - but it ain't necessarily your fault"

Hmmm...so the static isn't consistant?
Try looking at the footage with something like the Panasonic P2CMS reader/importer:

Or try HD Log or P2 Log from www.imagineproducts.com. See if Raylight sees this (www.dvfilm.com - demo available).
