    Cannot Open Saved Project - just dings

    Folks: So here's my deal. I have been working on a project for a year or so in MC v 8.02 and of course my system totally crashed. Blitzed motherboard. I had saved everything so my media and project "should" be okay, but until my system gets reapired I thought I had this great idea of using Media Composer First just to do a few low-end things.

    When First opens I can navigate to the Avid Projects folder I'd saved earlier from my "real" version of MC, it appears in the open projects window but when I highlight the folder and choose "Open" the Projects window shrinks to about one-quarter size mid screen and I cannot do anything. ANYWHERE I click I get a ding sound effect and the only thing I can do is Control-Alt-Delete and end the program... Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Tom

    As mentioned Media Composer regular and First have no compatability.

    However if you are using a different computer while your main one is repaired. Download and install MC and run it under the 30 day trial.
