batch export most definitely WILL carry reel# and timecode.
however, it wont carry all the audio tracks, so that can be a problem if you didn't go double system (separate audio)

you can get the reel warning if there is no reel# on the files.
no reel# can also make media manager take an inordinately long time IF you are working with subclips.
MM will export the entire file, not just the sub-clipped section

(subclips could also explain the start/end warning)

no reel# is a worry.

you can also get reel# and start/end warnings on audio tracks like music or sound effects that aren't 48k

are you working from the clips in the project?
you need to RE-IMPORT the original files.
it's best to do all this conversion work in a new project.

re-conecting isn't super simple,
it'd be best to to take all the originals off-line first.
now you could try to find all the 4444 files in the edit project and take them offline,
but you can only search for codec or source (file path) in the browser, not the timeline.
timeline searches are limited to name or timecode, so you'd probably be hampered.

they way i'd do it would be to modify the file names of the originals in the finder by adding an x, say, to the start, using a batch re-namer. (something that is easy to revert.)
do this with the projects closed.
then re-connect to the new files.

another way would be to copy them off to another drive.
FCP has to not be able to see them.

if your going to do that, why not copy to a FASTER dive, and continue working with them.
i dont understand why your drive is not fast enough.
is it FW800 or USB2?

transferring an entire project from one platform to another is not a quick or simple thing to do.
