I added a new SSD drive to my computer so that I could take my FCP projects and speed up the rendering time, etc.  Now that I have it, I can't seem to bring the projects from my old drive to the new one.


Any ideas?

    Do you see the drive in FCP? How is the drive formatted? How did you get the drive into your computer? Replace the super drive? Something else?

    You should have cloned with Carbon Copy Cloner the full original boot drive 100%, everything.  Then reformat the original drive (now your media drive).  Then copy the Events and Projects over to it.  Cloning only part of a boot drive is a horrible idea.
