That seems like a strange message to me because of course my movie has video and audio tracks. Why wont it go on my hard drive though?

Check your export settings - do you have the 'enabled tracks' and 'in to out' (I don't remember the exact wording). Essentially, you are telling Avid to use mark in/out and the enabled tracks. If you don't have in/out and enabled tracks, it won't export....

Make sense?

Do you have all your tracks enabled?

What kind of hard drive are you going to? SCSI? Firewire?

When you export, open your sequence then make sure your timeline is selected and active when you choose Export. Sometimes you'll actually have a bin selected and it will give that error--it's happened to me. Opening the sequence, selecting all tracks, then double checking to ensure the timeline window is active before exporting.

Make sure that you have your external hard drive attached BEFORE you start Avid up. This message will occur every time if you have an external hard drive (firewire, USB, etc..) and plug it in while Avid is running and then try to export to the drive... Always start Avid with the drive attached if you intend to export to it.
I have no idea why it gives the message it does, but that's why it does it.
