Getting a headache - too much information:

The Video Guys recommend G-Tech G-RAIDs for video processing.

What do you think?

No external Hard drive is recommended for Editing videos.

The problem is when the external hard drive goes to sleep or is disconnected. Powerdirector puts Black place holders on the timeline in place of the videos it cannot find.

You should always have your assets on your internal hard drive while editing a project.

You can store your project after it is finished in a Packed Project folder on external storage.

Hi,
In addition to what Carl has written.

I found that when an external/USB HDD is in "sleep mode/energy saving" and media data is "drawn" from the HDD, PDR may display a "white out" non-responding screen (at some point). Using a free software such as "NoSleepHD" to ping the HDD, can ensure it doesn't energy save.
External drives can be used but if I had a preference, I'd stick with internal drives to edit from.

Just what I found.
