General Help Q&A / Re: Failed to create file. Card full?
« on: July 10, 2014, 01:14:39 AM »
(just came to sit in front of the pc, its 23:00)

planning: yes.

at the moment main work an family deserves some time.
when things settle, i will definitely look into it.
until then i need the spare time to recover, not digging into C code all night :)

however other people can see this as encouragement to support ML by providing fixes.
(other people != alex all the time ;) )

Thanks for the update g3gg0. I wish I could help on the coding side. Your family and good rest is most important!

Hi g3gg0,

Just checking in to see if you have an estimate for this change. Are you still planning to make the fix? Thanks again!

ok seems that more than 10 files are not possible.
reminds me of the maximum file descriptor count.

Thanks for the response g3gg0. Is it possible to fix that limitation? doesn't stop at 10 files. I am able to fill the card with 14 files. Maybe Alex did something with to allow more then 10 files per recording? Just trying to help. Thanks again!

I would suggest creating a short overview of the problem, in the module thread thread, and linking back to this thread.

Thanks Audionut. I posted in that thread like you suggested. Hopefully g3gg0 or someone else might know what is causing the issue. Thanks again!

Audionut suggested I post in this thread a problem that I have encountered with mlv_rec. I get a "Failed to create file. Card full?" error message when recording a continuous clip using a 64gb card at the 40gb and 8 minute and 13 seconds mark. The camera freezes at that point. This error also happens with my 7D at 40gb and around 10 minutes of recording.

You can view the thread discussion here for more details. Other users are seeing the same issue.

This happens when using both cameras:
-5D mark 3
-64gb Lexar Card
latest nightly build of firmware 113

-64gb Lexar Card
latest nightly build of firmware 203

Do you have any idea what might be causing this? I really love using mlv_rec because I can have sound. This failure doesn't happen with raw_rec. Thanks so much for all the work you have done with mlv_rec. I appreciate it so much! Let me know if there is any other testing I could do to help narrow down the problem.

Are you getting the dummy file created on the card (with Reserve Card Space active)?  I don't recall exactly what it is called, but it will be on the same card used for recording.


I am getting the dummy file on the card with Reserve Card Space active.

Is there anything else I should test to help debug what the issue may be?

 I tried reformatting the card and I get the same error at the same point in time on both cameras: at 8 minutes on the 5D and at 10 minutes on the 7d. I also have the option in MLV, Reserve Card Space active. I was able to record in EXFat mode on the 5D and that worked fine without stopping and no errors, but I would prefer not having to format the card in EXfat mode.

Thanks for the suggestions. Are you guys not getting this error with your 64gb cards? I have a Lexar 64gb 1000x card.

I am also getting this error when recording with mlv_rec only. I don't get the error when recording with raw_rec. I just would really like to have sound so I would like to use mlv_rec...

I am getting this message when trying record one continuous clip on a 64GB card: "Failed to create file. Card full?"  I get this error at around 40gb or 10 minutes. The camera locks up and I have to force the restart. Is this a known issue? I am having this problem with mlv-rec on my 7D.203 and 5D3.113.

Anyone have the same problem or know if any setting to change to resolve the issue?

"Failed to create file. Card full?" What does this message mean? Today I wanted to see how long it would continuously record to 128gb CF card since I never shoot continuously longer than 4-5 minutes at a time and I was curious. After first 10 minutes or so, it stopped recording with this message so I turned it off and back on to try again and it stopped after around 10 minutes with the exact same message. Does anyone know what it is?

I have this same problem when recording with mlv raw with sound enabled with a Lexar 64gb 1000x card. The recording stops at 10 minutes with the above error: "Failed to create file. Card full?"

Any ideas as to what could be causing this error? I can fill up the card which is about 15 minutes of recording when using standard raw.rec mode, but I would love to have sound which is only possible with mlv.


Last post, mad respect to g3gg0 for the help....

Do the following ...

1. Download mlv_dump.osx
2. Open a Terminal
3. Go to the folder where you downloaded mlv_dump.osx (extract if needed) and type: sudo mv ./mlv_dump.osx /usr/bin/mlv_dump
4. Type sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/mlv_dump
5. Make a file in the folder where you've moved the MLV files, save as, with contents:

for FILE in `ls -A1 *.MLV *.mlv 2>/dev/null`; do
    BASE=`echo $FILE | cut -d "." -f1`;
    mkdir $BASE;
    mv ./$FILE ./$BASE
    cd ./$BASE
    /usr/bin/mlv_dump --dng -o frame_ $FILE
    /usr/bin/mlv_dump -m -o meta.mlv $FILE
    /usr/bin/mlv_dump -v meta.mlv >$FILE.txt
    rm ./meta.mlv
    cd ..

6. Run from the Terminal.

This will extract all the frames from the MLV files and extract MLV metadata into a TXT file.

7. Profit!

Thanks for putting this together this great script. So great for converting a bunch of files. It works perfectly! Thanks so much. Thanks to g3gg0 again too for the help!

Are you sure the audio is disabled?

The reason I say this is because when you have the FPS override turned on there is a message saying that the audio is disabled. I would record regardless of this message and just check and see if you have recorded an audio file when you extract it.

Just try it. You might be pleasantly surprised (as I was) to see that it actually does record it! ;)

If that's not the case then I really can't help you and sorry! but Merry Christmas anyway :)

Actually you are right. It does record the sound. I just assumed that the sound wasn't coming through because the sound meters disappeared and in the menu it says the sound will be disable when FPS override is activated.

Maybe there is a way to prevent the sound meters from being disabled when FPS override is active? Not a big deal, but would be nice. :)

48khz update works perfectly! I no longer need to convert the sound so that it can be read by Resolve. Thanks for the update! On Christmas even! Merry Christmas to you and everyone else.


When I try to record in 3x crop mode and when I set the FPS override to 23.976 it currently disables the audio. Is there a way to have prevent the audio from being disabled now that we have have the mlv_snd module?

Has anyone tested a long clip of a more thane a couple minutes? I have only tried short clips so far and they seem in sync. Are longer clips still in sync?

this actually makes the process seem far more complex than just converting dngs in Resolve...


Do you know of a way to link up the audio in Resolve automatically based on filename? I can align the audio manually in the timeline, but I wonder if there is a way to align the audio for the clips automatically by name.

Been doing many tests and now I only get the MLV files recorded to the card. The sound is still working great, but the IDX files are no longer being created. Anyone know what could be the reason? I tried formatting my cards an reinstalling ML files and that didn't change it. I don't have a use for the IDX files at the moment so I am not complaining, just curious. :)

I am having so much fun with this sound recording development. Its like the best Xmas gift ever! Thanks again g3gg0 and the ML team!

switch on "Disable G Draw" in Raw Video(MLV)

Thanks Andy kh! That worked.

Hi all,

been trying for a few hours now to get this to work, but I'm a bit clueless ... and feeling bad posting for help with my low postcount :/

- On my 5Dmk3, I've tried with installing yesterday's as well as today's nightly, and activated filemanager, mlv-rec, and mlv-play, then enabled mlv-rec. records just fine.
- downloaded mlv-snd from the first post in this thread, activated it as well, and enabled mlv-snd. i get the big reddish audiobars fine when recording.
- on OSX Mavericks, i installed mlv_dump.osx, made it executable and ran the --dng command: it extracts the DNG's just perfectly, but i just do not manage to get an assorted wav file.

Any pointers to where i missed an obvious step?

I am obviously not an expert with my low post count either, but you might need the mlv_record module from the first post of this thread rather than the nightly version. I use the mlv_rec from this thread and I have it working.

When I start recording I loose the overlays and I also loose the black mask bar on the top and bottom of the image. Is this the way it is supposed to behave with mlv_rec at this point in its development? I just want to make sure I have my settings right. Can someone please let me know… Thanks.

Is there a way to subscribe to a thread? I would love to be notified when certain threads are updated, but I haven't see a function on this forum. Am I just missing something or is there not function?

Thanks,  The mlv_dump.osx work for me too, it extract the wav file and the audio is sync, but the converted dng are color shifted to ugly green.

I use 5d MKIII
I get the green too. Once I bring it into After Effects I can adjust the Temperature and Tint to make it look right. The sliders for Temperature and Tint default to their minimum value which makes the green.

Dear g3gg0,

Thanks for your great surprise before this christmas.

I really want to test the mlv_snd.

But i can't find it in the updated nighty bulid.



You can get mlv_snd from the first post in this thread. Just add it to your latest nightly build. Post #874 a few pages back has a good overview.

can you try to exec
chmod +x ./mlv_dump.osx

Yes, that fixed it! I have it working on my OSX 10.8.5. I still had to rename the IDX extension so it would ignore it, but it has the same behavior on the pc.

Thanks for the tip!

Here was the command I used to create the dng's and audio file: ./mlv_dump.osx --dng M22-1413.MLV

g3ggo! Amazing! The audio is great and is totally in sync for a full 30 second test I just completed! This is so exciting to see the audio being developed for mlv_rec. Thank you again!

Here is some feedback and questions for you g3ggo or anyone else. (I am new to mlv_rec so I apologize ahead of time if the questions are already common knowledge)
1. Like a few people mentioned above… I also get a "missing header" error message when using mlv_dump on pc unless I rename the extension of the .IDX file. It also works if I just move the .IDX file to another directory.
2. The OSX version of mlv_dump file that you just posted didn't work for me. I think Danne is right in the post above where he mentions the file is not a unixbased file and maybe that is causing some issue.
3. When recording I loose the ML overlays and I also loose the 16:9 black bar crop on the screen. This might be a known issue, but I wasn't sure if I needed to set a setting to fix it. Also, when I stop the recording the ML overlays don't come back until I hit the preview button twice.

Thanks again for all the hard work! I really appreciate it. The addition of audio is going to make my life so much easier!
