How to prevent media import dialogue box upon inserting SD card
on Mar 27, 2019 at 10:40:20 pm

Hello everyone!

I can't find a solution to this. I use FCPX for my workflow and I will constantly insert SD cards into my iMac to copy files, but FCPX automatically brings itself to the front and opens up a media import box, even though I don't want FCPX to import the files into my projects. This is really annoying for workflow, as not only does it brings the dialogue box, but when I delete the files from my SD card I won't be able to empty the trash bin because "another application is using them". So I have to close FCPX in order to proceed.

How do I stop FCPX from doing this?

Thank you in advance.

Sign me up; this bother me too. It's like FCPX is trying to be helpful and anticipate that adding new media must mean I'm ready to start importing it, but that's almost never the case with me. I'm P2-card based, and I always first create a folder in my RAID where I'm going to offload the P2 car prior to my edits. I'm not even halfway done labeling that folder when helpful FCPX pops up the ingest dialog box, like an insistent 2-year-old. Happens when introducing almost any new memory device to the computer... "down, boy!" I wanna just tell it to cool it's jets and wait for a command.

I have not found the need to ignore connected cards/cameras this myself, so I can't say it will work, but CommandPost might be worth a shot. CommandPost includes a Preference "Ignore Inserted Camera Cards". Try it out and reply back if it works for you.
