Currently Being ModeratedOct 9, 2009 7:11 AM (in response to David Harbsmeier)I guess I left out that detail. I did re install FCE from the install discs. FCE was not installed from a backup, but most everything else was.
Still doesn't work.Mac OS X (10.6.1)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 9, 2009 8:03 AM (in response to bbogart)You need to upgrade to FCE4 if you are using Snow Leopard.
FCE 3.5 was not supported on 10.5 Leopard; FCE 3.5.1 was. But neither is supported on Snow Leopard.MacBookPro 2.66GHz/4GB/5.5TB, Mac OS X (10.5.7), iMacG5/2.0GHz/2GB, eMac/1.25GHz/1GB. Too much other gear.
Currently Being ModeratedOct 9, 2009 8:05 AM (in response to MartinR)Unfortunately, hats just not in the budget. Besides I have a real moral problem with being forced to upgrade software. Does this mean I have to go back to 10.5?
I'm also not really convinced that upgrading will solve this problem. Has anyone actually had this problem and found that it was resolved with an upgrade?
There must be something else....Mac OS X (10.6.1)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 9, 2009 11:12 AM (in response to bbogart)Moral problem! Get over it! You can used to anything. I keep getting hit with this stick and I'm finally used to that
Seriously, why would you not want the new features of the new version... I can understand you not wanting to be forced, but between your time wasted and the new features, doesn't it make sense to pick your battles and just upgrade?

Currently Being ModeratedOct 9, 2009 11:22 AM (in response to bbogart)Hi -
Here is the what Apple says about what versions of FCE are supported with Snow Leopard.
As you can see, it's FCE 4 only. As you suggested, to maintain functionality of your earlier version, you may want to regress your OS.
Hope this helps.

Currently Being ModeratedOct 9, 2009 8:39 PM (in response to Meg The Dog)You should NOT install a version of OSX that is earlier than what came with your Mac when you purchased it. If your MBP came with 10.6, don't go trying to install 10.5 on it.
FCE 3.5 was last supported on Tiger (10.4). It's now 2 generations out of date with regard to OSX. The smart thing to do is upgrade to FCE4.MacBookPro 2.66GHz/4GB/5.5TB, Mac OS X (10.5.7), iMacG5/2.0GHz/2GB, eMac/1.25GHz/1GB. Too much other gear.
Currently Being ModeratedOct 10, 2009 1:42 AM (in response to David Harbsmeier)Well thats constructive. I suppose I could have searched for a used macbook pro when my previous one died but that doesn't make too much sense does it? I suppose I was forced into upgrading because mac didn't produce a machine reliable enough to last forever.Mac OS X (10.6.1)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 10, 2009 1:47 AM (in response to MartinR)Thanks everybody. I'm not going to upgrade, but most of you make compelling arguments. I just don't have the cash after having to get this new computer. So.. I guess I'll find another way to accomplish what I need to do not using FCE.Mac OS X (10.6.1)
