    Media Offline

    I think I've dropped a big clanger. I was running out of space on an external hard drive so I copied a couple of smaller projects media to another identical brand and size hard drive but now the project won't see the MXF media. Is there any thing I can do or do I have to start again from scratch? All the files kept their names the only thing that has changed is the letter of the drive from D to C

    Very grateful for any suggestions.

    Thank you

    Re: Media Offline

    A bit confused; did you MOVE files from drive D to drive C, or copy them?
    Did you move them insde Avid, with the Media Tool, or outside the Avid programme?
    Which media does the project not see now - ANY media from this project, or simply the files that you moved?

    If you haven't already done this, close Avid and delete the databases of all your MediaFiles folders, then open Avid again so that they are all re-built. 

    I'm no Avid whizzkid but hope this helps. Tell us more, anyway, and maybe others will chip in.

    The MXF files need to be located in Avid MediaFiles/MXF/1 for them to be seen by the application.  Also, the Avid MediaFiles folder has to be at the root (topmost) level on the disk.  (That means it can't be inside of any other folder.)

    Must think of something clever to go here...
