After today's shooting I discovered that I cannot copy footage from my RED drive to any HDD (internal or external). I tried on different Macs and PCs, tried to connect via USB and FireWire and that's simply impossible. On Mac when I drag and drop or copy/paste, it simply hangs on 4 Mb or sometimes on 15 Mb and I can't even cancel copying. When I press stop copying button, nothing happens. I also can't eject RED drive from Mac - "disk in use" pop-up appears. And I can't also shut down computer normally - the only way how to do this is to turn off the computer by pressing the power button.
On PC when I try to copy/drag n' drop, it says that it cannot find file specified or something like that and nothing happens.
I tried to copy whole RDM folder, separate RDC folders and even separate R3D files but the same happens all the time. I tried everything on both systems - Mac and PC.
Before shooting the RED drive was properly formated on Camera (build 16). Shooting was done in 2K, mostly in varispeed mode.
When connected to camera, RED drive works fine - I can still record on it and play back everything.
I also can play back all QT proxies on computer from RED drive.
What could be wrong? I need my footage! Actually it's not my footage - it's client's footage. So it's even more serious!
P.S. I also tried to import R3D raw footage into FCP via Log and Transfer tool (using that new FCP RAW plug-in) and all I get is a message that FCP is adding files and that's where it stays. Nothing is added in reality.
P.P.S. Now I tried to play back all clips in camera - now in most cases the start of every clip is ok but at the end picture freezes and often "Internal Playback Error" shows up. And then I cannot play back anything until I have restarted the camera. And what is strange - I can still browse through menus but when I try to go to next/previous clip or back to live preview mode - nothing happens.
Does it mean that files on RED drive are damaged?
I also tried to use Mac Disc Utility Repair function and it showed that disk is ok and there's nothing to repair.
