Suddenly, after about fifteen months of running FCP 6 on a 3.4 GHz Intel i7 iMac OS X 10.8.5 and promos/pegasus 18T R6 Raid, I get the read/write access denied on FCP startup. Went thru firmware, etc updates with Promise... Raid seems to be OK. Tech suggested updating system software, but I'm loathe to do that at this stage of my project. Tried unclicking scratch disk when FCP allowed me to reset and then clicking them again, but didn't click set when I finished... clicked continue instead. oops. Now FCP starts to load, then stops, then closes w/o showing read/write access denied screen. Any clues what to do next. I'm at the very end of a humongous project (naturally)... laid it off to HDCAM yesterday, only to find one clip offline in the master. That's what I was trying to investigate when all this happened. God I hate this business sometimes. Thinking about selling hot dogs in Hilo. Mahalo in advance for any help you might have to offer.
