How to change the drive being imported from?

My MBP without any external drives attached when trying to import shows "(old) MBP" while the box is "new MBP."

 

The OS and Aperture Library on the new MBP work fine and see the proper drive for Libraries, but "Import" references only the old MBP and i cannot seem to navigate to the proper (internal) drive to import from. There is only the one internal drive and no external drives are attached.

 

This has to do only with navigating to the proper drive to import from. All other Aperture functions work fine up to trying to import.

 

Thoughts?

 

TIA

    Allen,

     

    Are you refering to the Import window or File->Import->Folders as Projects?

     

    A sceen shot of the window in question might help.

    Allen, whenever I see things in the views that Aperture presents,  that should no longer not exist, I trash the preferences - often this is caused by Aperture not being able to update the preference file.

     

    Just a long shot

     

    Regards

    Any idea what is being synchronized?

    I've seen "Loading" and "Loading Assets", but never "Synchronizing".

    As Léonie suggested moving out the preference file is a good place start. Might as well throw in a library and permission repair just to get that all out of the way.

     

    I'm still a bit unclear on just what is going on. The screen shot you posted shows the Desktop folder selected  and folders and files presumably in it. Are you saying that's not the case?

     

    What if you click on the Macintosh HD link in the top section, what does that expand to?

     

    One other thing that is odd is the Synchronizing and gear above the folder display. Does that ever go away? Does it happen if you select other folders?

     

    When did you bring up the new MBP? Has this been going on since then? How did you migrate from the old to the new?

    Allen,

    do you see this non-existent MBP Desktop also when working from a different User account? Or only when working from your regular account?

     

    And what do you see in the Terminal, when you list your volumes with

         ls Volumes  ?

    I see then exactly the Volumes Aperture shows in the Import panel.
