Are you not using a Mac? or OSX ? you posted in the Mac section :)
What OS are you running ? if your running 64bit windows 6GB ram + would help with the overall performance .
Pro Tools supports recording and playback to a secondary drive that meets the following requirements:
7200 rpm HDD or faster
9ms seek time or faster
Firewire drives must have the Oxford 911 (FW400 port), Oxford 912 (FW400 & FW800 ports) or Oxford 924 (FW800 ports) Bridge chip. USB drives are not supported and are known to be problematic.
Recording to the boot or C drive is not recommend.
-Delete DAE and Pro Tools preference files
can fix issues.. click for a utility that will do this for you automatically!
Start Menu > My Computer > Local Disk(C:) or correct hard drive (click "show the contents of this drive" if the files aren't displayed) > Program Files > Common Files > Digidesign > DAE > Right-click on the DAE Prefs folder and delete.
Start Menu > My Computer > Local Disk(C:) > Documents and Settings > "Your user folder" > Application Data > Right-click on the Digidesign folder and delete. (If the Application Data folder is not showing: Tools Menu > Folder Options > View Tab > Select "Show Hidden Files and Folders" > Click Apply and OK.)
- Delete the Digidesign Databases folders for all hard drives
This step can be useful when receiving random 'assertion' or 'neoaccess' errors, especially when recording or saving.
Start Menu > My Computer > Local Disk (C:) > Digidesign Databases > Right-click on the Digidesign Databases folder and delete.
Repeat for all hard drives.
Start menu > My Computer > Local Disk (C:) > Program Files > Digidesign > Pro Tools > Databases > Right-click on the Volumes folder and delete.
Does this help the issue?
