Are you saying it doesn't see the drive or simply how to designate the RAID as the Events or Projects drive?

Reviewing the manual, there are so many references to locating Events and Projects on external drives. Some references to “your computer” or “hard drive” when that appears to imply only your systems boot disk. I have a very large partition on my 2 TB internal drive that I hoped to use for FCPX but your post makes me wonder if that will even work. No problem in iMovie... 8^)

Is it RAID0?
With what software did you RAID the drives?
Are the drives in consecutive internal bays?

According to this post, people are seeing their additional internal drives so may be a peculiar behaviour with RAID drives:

Of course it's seeing the internal drives. All my drive bays are full in my MacPro and all are visible to FCPX. I'd never store media on the boot drive.

That's why I'd speculate about the RAID software used or some other discontinuity.

Two things:
• Currently FCPX doesn't recognize exFat drives, and prefers HFS+ Journaled.
• Currently FCPX hides the Time Machine backup drive.
