fcp can't "find" my external drive...

any ideas on what to do when final cut pro suddenly decides it can't find your external drive, although your mac sees it... tried shutting down, total restart, connect, disconnect, you name it... recognized it last night, today they never met..

I'd trash prefs and repair permissions if you haven't already tried that.

I don't get it.

You mean your media is disconnected?

without knowing the chain of events:
You might have changed the name of the drive, or even hit the "forget reconnecting to these files" button. Try selecting one of the clips in your show and "reconnecting Media" and then navigating over to your external drive.

Non-linear: all the time and nothing but.

I have had a drive go to sleep and totally confuse FCP. I have read that this a common problem with some external drive manufacturers but not so much with others.

Unless the drive is really cooked you should be ok. It often happens with my cheaper drives, I usually just open Disk Utility, the drive icon may be there but not highlighted (if they're not there highlight on the main drive) you then just click repair permissions, I've trashed my FCP permissions which worked but you should be aware you'll need to redo your personal preferences and I think you loose any favourite you may have saved.

I just don't see why you can't just reconnect media?
