31  General / General Discussion / CF copy problems on: May 05, 2008, 07:31:52 PM
I've been having getting my RAW files transferred from CF cards to my G5. I usually use a USB 2 card reader and ImageIngester. Lately I've been getting a lot of read errors--II stops and tells me this. So then I tried just copying the CF card to my desktop, without II. The copying stops after a while, and I can't cancel the copy (via the Finder copy progress bar). This happened with two different CF cards. I brought another brand new one--same thing. I've also tried 3 different card readers--still the copy issue.

I just tried copying the card to my Macbook, and it copied fine.

Anyone else have any issues like this? I'm wondering if it's my hard drive, or maybe the Finder is corrupted, or possible a hardware problem with my USB ports. By the way, the problem happened with the readers connected directly to the computer's USB port--not a hub. And there's no other USB device drawing power, at least not that I'm aware of.

Any suggestions would be appreciated, this is frustrating.

eta:

I always format my cards before shooting. It seems unlikely that the problem lies with the cards or card readers, since the problem has happened with 3 different cards and 3 readers. Also, I just copied the contents of the card I couldn't copy directly to my G5, by copying to my Macbook via USB reader, and then transferred from MB to G5 via Firewire. The folder and all image files copied without a hitch. So I'm guessing the problem isn't with corrupted files.

Also, I made sure there was enough drive space for the files; ie, it wasn't a matter of no room for the RAW files.

Thanks for your replies Marc. I couldn't get Terminal to work--I was able to drag my card on it and it's name showed up, but when I typed ls -R for some reason my hard drive got listed instead of the CF card. However, I realized I could use my FTP client (Transmit) to view invisible files. I am seeing a few directories there--I think OS X is putting them on the card. The folders:

.fseventsd this dir. includes: "000000000b64978d" and "fseventsd-uuid"  "uuid" is part of the filename of the mystery files.
.trashes
DCIM (here's the Canon stuff)

Jim--

Here are some simple instructions to get a complete list of what's on the card:

Let me know (email or here) what you see.

Jim--

What are you using to examine the files on the card? Some utilities (Mac Finder, Windows Explorer) may not show all the files.

--Marc

Mac Finder--which does show the files after they're ingested, but not when I double-click on the CF drive icon.

I don't see the mystery files when I mount the card and look in the folders. The files only appear after running II.

I don't know if this has to do with Leopard or not, but I just upgraded (to OS X 10.5), and now when I ingest RAW files from my CF cards, via Image Ingester, I get 2 or 3 weird extra files. A common is "uid." The filenames look like this: "Newberry_080103_uuid." (that's my name and the date, added via II, and I have no idea where the "uuid." comes from. Another one had my name and date, and then "0bb1." I can open these files in a text app, and they are blank. There icons are generic.

Anyone know what this could be? I format my cards before shooting. I just did a test where I formatted the card, took a shot, and put the card in the reader. Without running II, I see the RAW file alone. After running II, I get the added mystery file(s).

Something I've wondered for a while: how slow? I've done some searching and haven't found specific info regarding this. I usually burn at 6X. How about you folks? (Also, I use Taiyo Yuden DVDs, and always verify the burns).

I use thin DVD cases that hold two discs each. I don't know how "archival" these are--I guess the plastic the case is made from could cause damage to the discs over time. But the scratching from sleeves is avoided. Here's what I've been using:

Jim,
Are ou set to use the embedded preview in preferences?

It should not take this long (or at least it does not for me on similar equipment.)
Peter

Now I do! That's much better, thanks.

Jim,
Do you see a difference between verticals and horizontals?

How are the originals connected?
Peter
I just did an iView test--I created a new catalog, and added two DNGs to it--a vertical and a horizontal. I highlighted the vertical thumbnail, and then clicked on the media tab. It took 11 seconds to load. 4 seconds for the horizontal. I'm using a G5 dual 2.0GHz with 4GB ram. The DNGs are in an external FW800 drive (which is daisy-chained to two other FW drives--all FW800).

>Browsing DNGs seems a lot faster with Bridge.

Really?  That seems unusual - particularly for cross-folder capabilities, saving groups, and more.

Do you have a single comprehensive catalog, or lots of little ones?

>Also, I've been trying to use iView less due to troubles with EM.

Curious what you mean here. 

Peter

I have one iView catalog per year, although this year's is probably too big--I have over 45K images. When I click on a dng thumbnail in iView, it takes a while to see the full "media" view. With Bridge I always build a cache for every folder, and the performance with dng's is better (though still not super speedy obviously).

Regarding troubles with EM: I started another thread in the EM forum about xmp files showing up in my iView catalog. Also, I'm annoyed that  you can't simply choose "upgrade" info from the menu, but instead must go to the EM site hunt for info, and get a Windows Live ID. Not a huge problem, but annoying.

- Jim

ETA: I don't mean to start with Microsoft-bashing; I just find it annoying that it seems much harder to find what the latest version of EM, compared with iView.

Jim,
Why not extract with iView?
Peter

Browsing DNGs seems a lot faster with Bridge. Also, I've been trying to use iView less due to troubles with EM.
43  Software Discussions / Bridge/ Camera Raw / Re: Multiple folders in bridge? on: October 22, 2007, 11:14:28 AM
Yes, that's why I mentioned the two options. You'd have to go to the next level up the folder tree, and the usual comments about Bridge performance would apply.

John

Thanks for the suggestion, but I don't think this will be a practical solution, due to the performance issue you mentioned. Going up one level will load all of the images on the (500gb) drive--the two folders I need to access are in different buckets (unless I'm misunderstanding).  I realize I can filter for the date of the shoot, but I think this will take too long.

Jim,
If I want to batch out JPEGs from DNGs, I do it with iView - no need to go back to Bridge, and much faster.

If I need to use Dr. Brown's on them (to add an action, for instance), I will have iView dupe the DNGs to a temp folder, and then run Dr. Brown's on the temporary duplicates.  after batching, I'll erase the dupes.

BTW, if you only need to add an action, you can make it a droplet, and set that up in iView as a helper app.  When you send DNGs' to the droplet, it will run the action.

Peter

I've done that before--made a temp folder and copied the images from iView. I like the droplet idea. I was hoping there was an easier way to work with multiple folders in Bridge. But I'm using both apps anyway, so it's not really a big deal.

Thanks John and Peter for the feedback.

Just worth pointing out that Bridge CS3's Filters panel has a little button that looks into subfolders. The Find dialog from CS2 has an Include Subfolders checkbox.

John

Would that allow me to view the contents of two folders in different buckets?

The images are DNGs. I do use Iview.
