P2 Import Error - PLEASE HELP
on Apr 14, 2009 at 2:36:40 am

I received some P2 footage on an external drive. Everytime I try to import I get this error in FCP:

"Card_002" contains unsupported media or has an invalid directory structure. Please choose a folder whose directory structure matches supported media

The folder contains:
Contents
lastclip.txt

The Contents folder contains:
Audio
Video

Can anyone help me figure out why this won't work. So frustrating.

Think there are some folders missing there. Can you get a complete output of the original P2 card to check.

From what I have read it needs to also contain proxy, clips, and voice folders.

Yup. Without those other folders FCP won't import the footage. And since one of those folders contains data FCP uses (clip) you can't just make the folders and hope it works.

If you can't get the original folders off the cards...if they have been erased, then you need to look at 3rd party solutions like P2 log or Calibrated or MXF4QT.
