you have to ensure your transcoded/consolidated media is in the proper avid structure on that hard drive.
Since it is avid media, it has to maintain the Avid MediaFiles/MFX/yourmedia structure. (spelling and capitalization is important on those first 2 folders.) This structure has to be in the root of your new drive....not inside another folder.

I would assume the yourmedia folder already has a database in it from when you transcoded the footage. If that has become corrupt, you would have to change the folder name to a number, to allow Avid to re-index it. Once the indexing is done, you can rename it back to whatever you want.

I would also suggest you determine a method of hiding your other avid media from the system while you check this archive. I usually temporarily rename my normal Avid MediaFiles folders to XAvid MediaFiles. This will prevent Avid from looking in there.
(you could also rename the /MXF folder to /MXXF and once again Avid will ignore it.
