Sheer Panic Not Far Off: Final Cut Express HD_File not opening
on Sep 18, 2014 at 11:24:43 am

Hello,

I'm a newbie to Creative Cow, so apologies if I'm breaking any Cow Etiquette here.

My initial problem was this;

I have been trying to export a 75 minute film from Final Cut Express HD without any success.
I went to try some of the ideas I picked up from CreativeCow forums about bad render files, only to find I now have a much bigger problem on my hands.

I last viewed the film file in Final Cut Express two days ago when I watched the entire film through. I saved it as normal and closed everything down.

Today I have opened up Final Cut Express, tried to open the film file from the external hard drive and this message comes up;

File I/O Error


I went to copy all the working files over to another external hard drive, as back up, before I try changing anything. When I went to do that, this message came up;

The Finder cannot complete the operation because some data in [name of file] could not be read or written. Error code - 36

In Final Cut I can still open up other working files and watch them through, so it appears to be a problem with this file rather than the software.

Feeling extremely nervous right now. Any help would be hugely appreciated.
Thank you
Thea
