While reconnecting offline files, click out of Final Cut and freeze

I have had this issue in FCP 6 and 7 - when I reconnect offline media and click off of the search window in FCP, I can't get back to FCP. For example, I click File>Reconnect Media; click "Search" and the window comes up to search the finder for the media. If I click out of FCP while that window is up, to the Finder or other application, I can't get back into FCP. It's sort of frozen, but it doesn't exactly crash. It's just stuck with the search window open. I can't cancel it and I can't select any file in FCP. I have to force quit. Any suggestions?

Here are some things i noticed about that

1. sometimes just clicking on any of the final cut panels or panes doesnt bring you back to the application. you may actually have to click the icon in the dock.

2. make sure there isnt a window waiting for a response hidden behinf the reconnect panel, usually one of the warnings about number of tracks, media start and end, and reel number

3. sometimes you have to trash your preferences. if you do not know how to do that, search on this forum.

hope this helps

Just walked through this with Apple tech support on the phone.

First: quit Final Cut Pro.

Second: Follow this path - User Folder (home)/Library/Preferences - find and TRASH "com.apple.finalcutpro.plist"

Third: Scroll down in that same preferences folder and find the folder "Final Cut Pro User Data" and TRASH it.

Restart FCP and it should fix your problem. Worked for me and it had been giving me trouble for a while.

Hope this helps.

I've got the same problem... It is some sort of glitch and force quitting and trashing prefs is not the sort of solution I was looking for here, especially since you can't save your project this way. Hope apple fixes this soon.
