I've had to dig out an old hard drive with a project on it. It was edited in one of the first few version of Fcpx 10.

I can see the project but the file is a CurrentVerson.fcpproject and the current version of fcpx doesn't seem to want to open it no matter what I try to do.

Any ideas how I can get this to open?

You can't just simply double-click or import an old project file. FCP has to convert it first. For that you simply copy the old folder structure ("Final Cut Pro Events" etc.) to the top level of any external disk or into your Movies folder (otherwise it'll ask you where it is and you have to navigate to it) and simply choose "Update Project and Events" from the File menu.
