error occurred while building the database file" DOMAIN_COPYIN_FAILED
on Jul 17, 2014 at 10:44:46 am

Can anyone please help with this?
I am cutting on Avid 6.5. I have a Media Files folder with 51 folders in it.
I am trying to re build my media data base but keep getting this error message.

I have looked through past post's and have read that dupe files could cause this.

i do have dupe files but with a .1 or .2 after the name before the MXF, ex below…

alistair.psd14053AD3A51.1.mxf
alistair.psd14053AD3A51.2.mxf

any help would be very much appreciated.

I have solved this but can't see where to delete post.

Instead of deleting post, perhaps you can share what you did to fix it so someone else in the same situation can benefit?

That's a better idea...

I did discover that dupe clips within the MXF folder will not cause a problem if they were copied across by mistake, which is what I must have done (cmd c cmd v). The clips are duped but a .1 is added, if there are multiple dupes a .2 .3 is added.

To solve the original problem I simply removed the folder from the MXF folder, created a new empty one in in it's place. I then systematically colored a load of clips green, copied them from my old folder to the new folder within the MXF folder, re started Avid. If the mdb were re built and Avid started up I kept them green and if I got the error message I deleted them from my new folder and colored them red in the old folder.

In the end (3 hours later!) I had all my green clips working in the MXF folder and two red, obviously corrupt media files in my old folder.


It was quite long winded and dull beyond belief but it worked in the end.
