FCPX Events and Projects not loading from internal hard-drive

I have a weird situation happening with Final Cut Pro X. When I start up Final Cut, I get an error message stating:

"[EVENT NAME AND FILEPATH]/CurrentVersion.fcpevent is not a valid location for a document file.

Open documents from within Final Cut Pro."


None of the events and projects on my internal hard drive load once this occurs. I can still see my folder structure in my projects, just none of the projects themselves. I can also see any events and projects on any external drives I have plugged it. It gets weirder; if there are no external hard drives plugged in, it automatically creates a new event with the day's date. If I quit and start up Final Cut Pro X again, that event will give me the same error message as above, and also won't show up.

And this is where it gets weirdest: I've tried deleting the preferences, repairing disk permissions, getting rid of any folders with 'DCIM' in the title, restarting the computer, even deleting FCPX and reinstalling it from the app store but the problem persists. I had this happen back at the start of December as well, and it seemed to resolve itself after a night. The problem appears (so far) to be totally spontaneous; I was working in Final Cut Pro at the office just fine yesterday, but when I started it up at home, it gave me trouble.

I've seen a similar issue on the forums here and at Apple, but so far I haven't found any explanation for what causes this bug or how to fix it. Has anyone run into a similar problem, and is there a solution that reliably fixes it?


PS I'm working from a 2009 Macbook Pro running 10.6.8, using Final Cut Pro v. 10.0.7

Ah, I just saw from someone else's forum posts about this that this is the FCP7 Forum, not FCPX. I've reposted it there, but is it still okay to be in here? If not, how can I delete this? (I'm new to Creative Cow...long time reader first time poster and all that jazz).

Don't worry about deleting the post.
