Hello all, thanks in advance for your help. I recently bought a pmw-ex1. I also bought a sony card reader and started to offload footage onto a WD mybook, via my old Mac G4 and usb, which needless to say took forever. The first time I offloaded footage it was in a file called BPAV. The next time I tried to drag and drop the folder from the card reader it prompted me to change the name of the folder so as not to have to overwrite the existing folder on the external. Standard procedure. I did so and changed the name of the folder to BPAV 2. I did this several more times with different names.
The goal of this guide is to provide you with a general foundation of
knowledge about each of the most popular HD formats, so that you can
use this information as part of your decision. It is not a technical
manual. I am going to do my best to avoid tech speak and keep it in
simple to understand terms.
