DCP question

PostSat Oct 13, 2018 4:47 pm

So, I made a DCP for a short film I finished. I am in the lucky position that I was able to have it checked for free.
I had copied it to an EXT2 formatted USB drive, using paragon software. The inode was 256.
They went tomingestbit, and it failed.

I am now having the DCP made, as I need it for a festival, and got a discount. So saved some money there.

Now, once I have it, I'll make it available for download for other festivals.
But if I want to copy it to a USB drive, what's the best way to do this?
I installed a copy of VMware and UBUNTU on my mac, hoping that would do better job of copying, but still no option to format it with an inode ot 128.

Suggestions?

BCPs need to be put onto a special hard drive formatted in a particular way. Google it.

I've done piles of googling.
And they can be put on thumbdrives, that are properly formatted.

Inode of Ext2 or Ext3 format must be 128
In ubuntu open a terminal and type

To see the DCP usb stick path
Code: Select all
$ lsblk

then you need to unmount the usb stick that you want to format
(considering that the path of the stick is /dev/sde1)
Code: Select all
$ sudo umount /dev/sde1

then format the stick, it can take a long time, when the format is done eject the key and reintroduce it
Code: Select all
$ sudo mkfs.ext2 -I 128 0 -L DCPSTICKNAME /dev/sde1

Then you need to modify authorizations and ownership of the stick
Code: Select all
$ sudo chmod 777 -R /media/UBUNTUUSER/DCPSTICKNAME

and
Code: Select all
$ sudo chown R root:root /media/UBUNTUUSER/DCPSTICKNAME

after that copy your DCP in the USB stick and eject safely.
Simple, no need to buy any kind of specialized software.
