Trouble reconnecting media after changing hard-drives
on Jun 23, 2013 at 3:27:42 pm

Hi,
I was having trouble with my FCP7 crashing while using one hard-drive, so I transferred the media to a different hard-drive. Now I'm having trouble reconnecting the media, so I can't view or edit my sequence. My video was all shot with a tapeless Panasonic AG-HPX170 camcorder with P2 cards, and I originally used 'log and transfer.' What I've tried is selecting individual clips and choosing 'reconnect media.' But when I do that and try to select the entire folder, because individual clips are separated into all these component parts with this camera, I can't select the entire folder because it won't let me, nor can I find the individual clip. If anyone can advise me how to reconnect this media I would certainly appreciate it!
Thanks a lot,
Neil

It would seem obvious to use log and transfer. You need to use batch capture to re-ingest the media.

what format did you transcode to with Log & transfer?

it seems as if you might have the original card media on the same drive as your transcodes,
and Reconnect is finding that.

maybe you need to use "Locate" and direct FCP to the transcodes

OR
make sure the new file path is identical to the old one,
same folder structure
AND that includes naming the drive exactly the same.

then there should be no problem at all.
