Events and Projects Librarys Missing in FCPX (but folders and videos in finder exist)


I am now seriously annoyed at this.
All of my Events and Project Librarys are missing when I load up Final Cut Pro X. As its loading the splash screen it spins through that its reading the event library, restoring windows etc etc
But when its fully loaded up there are NO Events or Projects listed.
Can anyone advise what to do here?

Previous to this I had a solution where I kept rebooting the computer until they finally all showed up in FCPX again, but this has now completely stopped working.

All of my files still exist correctly, but its just like FCPX doesn't see them (they are all sitting on my internal HD)

I have files called

CurrentVersion.fcpevent

sitting in
Movies>Final Cut Events>(Name of Event)

and files called

CurrentVersion.fcpproject

Sitting in
Movies>Final Cut Projects> (Name of project)


All of my video media exists in
Movies>Final Cut Events>Name of Project>
Original Media
in their individual folders

If I double click from Finder and try to open a
CurrentVersion.fcpevent

I get the pop up
The document “CurrentVersion.fcpevent” could not be opened.

If I double click from Finder and try to open a
CurrentVersion.fcpproject

I get the pop up
The document “CurrentVersion.fcpproject” could not be opened.

Everytime I start up FCPX it creates a
NEW EVENT (plus the date)
in my Final Cut Events folder.


So, any help anyone?
I'm now thinking what a terrible choice it was to ever bother buying and spending weeks learning how to use FCPX properly and that I should have used a different video editing program instead.

This is seriously depressing :(

Wrong forum. This one is for FCP 7 and earlier...the LEGACY FCP versions.

FCX forum is here:

Has anyone found a solution to this problem. It just started happening to me. I just tried the HD on another computer running FCPX and everything opens correctly. I have trashed prefs, reinstalled, removed recent plugins and nothing works. As you can see there is just a giant info section at the top

Hey John and Adam,

I also had this issue, and was finally able to resolve it by rebooting in safe mode (start up your computer while holding down the shift key). I started up FCPX from within safe mode (don't know if this is necessary, but just in case it is I'm throwing it in). That gave me an error message that some of it's OpenGL components weren't supported in safe mode, so I restarted normally and FCPX read all my events and projects from the internal drive just fine.
