Smoke 7 message - Partition manager: testing speed disk

Unread postby alestes » Fri Sep 04, 2009 11:59 am

Hello to everyone
We have an Smoke 7 .0.14 system build on an Octane 2 with IRIX 6.5.28 and 4 GB of RAM and an Octane's Video option with MXE graphics card.Also the Octane2 has a cardcage but it hasn't got any cards installed on it. Ours Stone are 2 old D1000 stone boxes with 6 stones 7200 RPM of 9GB each per box.These D1000 boxes always has been connected to the SCSI port of our Octane 2 and Smoke 7 starts perfectly and works OK everytimes.
A few days ago I had to digitize a tape on a Pal Project that previously It has been created for me. I started Smoke, I login to the previously Pal project I created,then go to library,started the input clip module and digitize the clip and save it into the library.
At this point all works fine but when I want to load the clip to the editdesk a message appears, it says- "PARTITION MANAGER:testing speed disk" and Smoke start thinking and finally I have to switch off because I'm bored to wait.
What can I do?
Someone can help me to solve this or explain to me why this happens?
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you to all

Hello again.
This isn't a commercial request.
I've never seen this message (Partition Manager:testing speed disks) on Smoke before.
For the present when I try to digitize a clip and load it into the editdesk this message appears and smoke freezes and I don't know why.
The only that I want to know is how I can I solve this problem or quit this message because I can't do my job.
If someone knows why my smoke do that or what can I do,please tell me how.
Thank you to everobody

What is wrong with a commercial request? Businesses have to put up with computers, too!

I've never used smoke before so I can't help... :( I wouldn't know where to begin other than 'check the cables'.

I would jump on over to www.fxguide.com or Autodesks area, there are quiet a few working artists on both those sites & I am sure that someone may have an answer for you.
