I've got this old core 2 duo laptop (convertible gateway tablet) with 4GB of ram, running WinXP tablet edition on a 200GB 7200rpm drive, and I've had both Avid and Premiere on it at one time and they both worked fine, but I can't get RCX to work on it.
It always installs fine, but when I try to start it up, either by double clicking a R3D file or by running it from the start menu, there is a short moment where the computer seems to consider loading (task manager shows a small spike in CPU usage, and the curser might blink), and then nothing happens. I've tried 12, 12 beta, and 13 beta.
After installing 13 beta, I tried the R3D player, and it actually runs, but when I load a R3D in, it just shows a white image (this usually suggests to me there is a codec problem). I've tested R3D's that I know work on other machines, both before and after trying them on this one.
This is my mobile office computer, and it would be really handy to have it double as a R3D offloading station on shoots where I don't have a DIT. I even found a PCMCIA to eSATA card for it and it dumps SSD's amazingly quick (about 2GB per minute). Working with P2's 1GB per minute cards, I always thought the bottleneck was with the PCMCIA ports!
Has anyone seen something similar or have any ideas?
