Default Random noise burst

Hello Duc users, I've been experiencing that static burst noise in 7.4, and wanted to know if I reformat my local C: hard drive, would that solve the problem? I know it cant be my external hd because I just bought it, and reformated it to ntfs. Also, is this only a problem in 7.4?

Lots more info might help get an answer. Start with these 2 threads:

I doubt formatting will help. I would try trashing prefs as described in the threads above. Also, if you have any demo plugins, I would uninstall those as some demo versions make the noise(IK Multimedia for instance). My old 002/AthlonXP system would give loud bursts and freeze completely and the fix turned out to be a power issue and using an APC UPS (battery backup) solved the issue.

I have seen this happen with USB external hard drives. You are using a firewire external drive as recommended, aren't you?

These are often plugin related. What 3rd party plugs do you have installed?

Happens just as well on fire drives...Reformatting your system drive isn't going be the solvent though...is it a firewire card ur plugged into or the firewire built in on the computer?...I had that prob with some firewire drives...Started a thread here over a year ago about that & really never got the answer so I just started recorded to sata drives ex & internal & haven't had the problem since...

Default Re: Random noise burst

Which Digidesign hardware are you using?

If it's a firewire interface, this may be the problem:

FireWire/1394 Controller 1 : Dell R5C832 IEEE-1394 Controller
Only Texas Instruments (TI) firewire controllers are compatible, so you should get a compatible firewire card.

Before using the WD firewire drive, did you format it? If not, you should.

Did you do ANY of the steps in the links that Albee posted?
