I'm having an unlink problem for seemingly no reason.
I'm working on a 30 sec commercial-- that for no reason, started to have several missing un-linked video files when I came back to work this morning. Trying to reconnect them like I normally would, they keep re-linking to the wrong video clip,,,,but the folder where these clips reside, are the right clips when I open that folder and look. But they are the wrong clips in the timeline. They are linking to the wrong clip in this same project. Never seen this.
Question: I recently purchased a 1 TB external hard drive, and forgot to format it Mac OS Extended Journaled. So, could this external hard drive that is MS DOS FAT cause a problem like this? I did an earlier short project with no link issues.
Should I copy all the origin media to another drive, reformat it to Mac OS Extended Journaled, and then put the files back on this drive? Or would this cause more problems?
