Prem preview bar break up

My DV500 and prem.6 have worked very well from the start. Except the preview bar in the timeline breaks up after scrubbing, leaving several duplicate ends. This looks untidy but doesn’t appear to affect the program at all.
I have tried putting the preview files on both the system and video drive, and with the project itself.

Anyone know if this is a prem. problem, or could it be the graphics card ?

My GFX card is an Ati Rage Fury Pro/Expert 2000 Pro 32meg.

Many thanks.

Have you the latest ATI drivers installed?

What Pinnacle driver version are you on?

Thank`s Col.

The ATi drivers are from last July. I have just downloaded the Oct 01 version and installed. The problem is still there if I rec. to a slow ATA33 drive, but seem ok on the normal ATA66/100 A/V drives I use. I can clear it if I expand/contract the timeline.

DV500 drivers are ver. 201. This niggle has always been there. My own thoughts are that I use an ATA33 boot drive. DV tools show it can rec/play at more than 12meg. I am thinking of replacing it with a new one soon. (I hope)

Many thank`s

Regards
John
