Sorry M,
Ok, here goes... Log in to student account with no admin rights, launch avid, with no externals attached I try to import any media into avid, error msg= "no media drives available for import, you can still log shots" no biggie. go to console, type alldrives, hit return, try again, same thing (so that works for network drives but that's not what I'm after, I want to make the boot drive available for importing media, for students tutorial media only) checked media creation tool, in each tab boot drive is greyed out with the "all drives filtered out" msg in list. When importing with no volumes connected there is no choice for media drive. Tried all again on admin account to no avail. My next question is: composer is only configured to work with external and network storage instead of the main system drive?
So in a nutshell, 2 things: 1. change which volume avid is looking for with certain clips and, 2. set the system/boot drive as a media drive. Apologies for my miscommunication and/or confusington on this and many thanks for your continued patience. (I hope this is a little more clear.)

Reality? What did you make it?
