I have copied final cut projects and events to my Mac internal drive from an external drive on which they were located. I could not do this via FCPX because of a problem: FCPX being unable to open up unless [it says] some corrupt files are either restored or move. Neither FCPX nor I are able to do this [restoring or moving out of the corrupt files].


So, after copying the events and projects onto my Mac's HD, I tried to open the currentproject in FCPX, but the application states that it has to be opened from within FCPX only.


Is there any workaround by which I would be able to get FCPX read these projects and events [a work of nearly 5 months]?


One idea: can I make a disk image of the projects and events folders and would they then be 'read' and accepted by fcpx?


Eagerly waiting for solution/s.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.5), garage band, FCPX:10.0.6 version
