GEAR Video 9

If you need to use a network storage device for storage space, be sure to 'map' the network path as a local drive on your Windows system first.


Example:

You need to use a network storage path for temporary space (for any reason):

File:GV9-networked-project-folder.png


Doing so will prevent GEAR from using this network path for temporary space when burning the project, writing an ISO image, or as .divx files on the hard drive:

Solution:


Map the network storage location to a local drive letter and select this mapped-drive as the directory:

Now GEAR Video will use the 'root' directory of the mapped network drive for temporary space:

Loading Data in a GEAR Project via a network path

In GEAR when importing data, you have the option of selecting Network Folders in which to browse for selected content.

NOTE: if you select a network folder that is unmapped your computer may freeze (On some systems, network functionality works without errors).

GEAR will always work, however, with a network drive that has been mapped with a local drive letter.

To map a network drive follow these simple steps:

  1. Open My Computer or Windows Explorer
  1. Under Tools, Select Map Network Drive
  1. With the Drive tab select the drive letter you wish to Map the new drive to.
  1. Click Browse next to the Folder tab, and select the network location you wish to map
  1. Click Finish to complete mapping the new drive.

This drive will now be accessible to GEAR for loading data from your mapped network.


Loading VIDEO_TS content for DVD Video

In GEAR when importing VIDEO_TS content, you have the option of selecting Network Folders in which to browse to your VIDEO_TS content.

NOTE: if you select a network folder that is unmapped your computer may freeze (On some systems, network functionality works without errors).

GEAR will always work, however, with a network drive that has been mapped with a local drive letter.

To map a network drive follow these simple steps:

  1. Open My Computer or Windows Explorer
  1. Under Tools, Select Map Network Drive
  1. With the Drive tab select the drive letter you wish to Map the new drive to.
  1. Click Browse next to the Folder tab, and select the network location you wish to map
  1. Click Finish to complete mapping the new drive.

This drive will now be accessible to GEAR for loading VIDEO_TS content.
