I have installed Final Cut Pro x. I save all of my projects on my external hard drive, and suddenly it has stopped working.

I load FCP and it displays, in the project library all of my projects on my external hard drive, and then dissappears!

I have lots of projects and am really annoyed that I can't use them any more. I would really appreciate all of your help


It starts loading, and displays this

My external hard drive is called Ralph docs. It is still loading the window.

Then the external hard drive disappears from the project library...

Then it disappears from the event library.


I tried going into the external hard drive directly and opening the project from there... Nothing happens. I can play it if I do that, but not edit it in the magnetic timeline.



Please help me! I have even reinstalled FCP twice but nothing.

Final Cut Pro X, Mac OS X (10.7), External HD: Western Digital 1tb
