    Gigabit ethernet is a cabled connection. There's 10-megabit, 100-megabit (aka "fast" ethernet) and 1000-megabit (aka "gigabit ethernet").

    Barry,
    Maybe things have changed since I was a PC user, but I thought Windows wouldn't allow over a 2gig file? Seem to recall my Avid suite breaking everything into 1.9987 gig files. And when I look at my P2 card to import the file it can be huge, taking up the whole card if I do a long take such as a speaker. (Using 16gig cards) I don't see it as multiple files. Or is it just importing as one big file into my Mac instead of multiple smaller files on the card? Just a little P2 magic going on behind the scenes?

    PS Been reading your HVX/HPX book this week. Had it on my shelf for two years. Wish I read it when I got the rig! LOL!

    Windows supports huge file sizes, but the file system of the P2 card is FAT32, which supports up to 4GB per file. Any larger than 4GB and it has to close the current file at 4GB and start a new file. If you're using Log & Transfer to turn the MXF files into Quicktime files, it's probably aggregating all the individual 4GB clips into one big MOV file.

    I'm not doing mac/win, but on a win-only system, I'm doing okay with one of these:

    All my 3.5 bays were full, had to find a tray adapter for a 7, once that was done everything went fine. Had it about a year now and all is well.

    Hi Barry, I just bought a used HVX200. I'm very excited! Question - if I went the route of using a Windows laptop in the filed, would I be able to remove the P2 card from the camera, continue shooting on a fresh P2, then, in the meantime, plug the used P2 into the laptop to begin downloading footage? Where does it plug in? Do Windows laptops have a P2 slot?
    Thanks, Dennis

    Using the AJ-PCD2GPJ Single-slot P2 reader on a macbook pro (the newer one, i7) works seamlessly, super reliable, very happy with it. Running snow leopard only.
