Hey,

so lately ive been experiencing weird problems with my mac. When im editing in FCP, messages would constantly appear saying i don't have enough memory, when i clearly do. I've changed all the capture scratch settings and where im saving my project as a whole. The problem persists. Also, in iDvd when im burning a project, it always stops and says that an unknown error occured and it never finishes the DVD. I called apple, and they're saying that i simply don't have enough memory, when from experience i know i do.

So to try and facilitate this problem, im going to invest in a new Seagate 500GB drive (use it as a primary, and use the one that im using now, the 250GB, as a secondary). I then plan on installing all new and updated programs and software (FCP, Shake, iWork, iLife, etc. etc.).

So my question to you all, Will this fix my problem?

-Zak

I'd run all the routines in OnyX and see if just cleaning things up really well would help. I have a G5 and don't have any of those sorts of problems.

Most people refer to memory as the RAM, so how much RAM do you have? 118GB is clearly enough for...mostly anything.
