Deleting Preferences in FCP 7

I have been having an issue with messages from FCP7 concerning read/write issues with my hard drives.


Can someone give me a quick walk through of trashing preferences?

Thanks

Go to digitalrebellion.com, download PREFERENCE MANAGER. It's free. It's very reputable...used by Apple.

Open the app. Select FCP 7...click TRASH.

Done.

Thanks Shane.
The only thing I'll have to re-do is my FCP settings?

No risk to files?

Project files and media files are untouched. You'll just have to redo settings. If you have saved layouts or keyboards, those are untouched too. Just need to load them again

Didn't work.

Although it likely was still needed… when relaunching it let me know it couldn't find external HDV camera deck… been A LONG time since I had that..

So, I got the OWC Thunderbay 4 you recommended. Still saying it is write only. Have any idea what may have caused this?
I have the first two drives on it mirrored and the second two mirrored. This is the second set that is write only. I did copy files from the first set over to the second… maybe that caused it?

WRITE only? Can't read? Run DISK UTILITY on it and REPAIR PERMISSIONS

When you GET INFO on the drive, in the FINDER...what does it say for PERMISSIONS at the bottom?

And you are using this as a JBOD, right? not running any RAID software?

It says I have READ ONLY permission.

I have them set up as two separate RAID mirrors via disc utility.
