I have been using FCP for years and this is the first time I have experienced this problem with the log and transfer option.
I am importing footage taken from a panny HPX170 as usual into FCP 7 and it imported all of my footage except for two very important clips of which it gave the little red exclamation sign. I hit "retry" and nothing. I restarted and tried again, still the same error.
I had to free the space up on my P2 cards so I copied the raw data onto the same HD as my project file to try again later. Still... the same error. I am able to view the clip in the log and transfer window with audio and everything but it will not log and transfer the 2 files. It wont even tell me what the exact error is.
I osted here in a different forum and was told to try P2CM, that didnt work because everytime I tried to ingest the program crashed. Now I am being told that I can export the saved data back onto the P2 cards and repair them but I cant for the life of me find out exactly how to do this.
P2CMS will let you transfer the P2 Media back onto the cards. If you can get it working. Make sure you have the latest version or one that is compatible with your OS.
Once back on the card, put in cam. Choose repair clip.
v1.4.9 is the latest. As I said on the other thread, you need to get the cards over via the finder/USB and see if you can repair the clips. If P2CMS is crashing, there's probably something pretty wrong with your files. You don't need to ingest the files, just see if they load, then see which ones are incomplete/not working.
