I'm taking over a project from another editor. The editor sent me a external hard drive that is supposed to have all the media,bins,project files etc. The previous editor was on media composer 3 on a PC I'm working on media composer 5 on a mac. The problem in have is at the select project folder there are no projects in any of the columns except for mine. At the top of the window where it says folder it is pointing to the correct folder on the hd. I've tried creating a new project and opening a bin but I get a pop up that's says I can't make changes and then all the media is offline. The previous editor swears she used media manger within media composer. Any ideas what could be wrong? Thanks!
Have you put her project file in your Shared Avid Projects folder on your startup disk? Project Files and Media files must always be separate, with the Project Files being on the boot drive. Copy her Project files to a safe backup solution, remove it from the external drive with the media, and put it into your system drive. It should appear.
