One thing to note is that I have all the 'raw' and 'convert' files in a seperate folder, should I copy both said folder and "final cut pro documents" folder onto my new HD?
I'm thinking since it's the source material FCP will be able to recognize it and use it.

here's the trick. Maintain the exact "path" to the media on the new drive (the folder structure) and name the new drive the same as the old scratch disk. FCP should see no difference and link to the media without any need to reconnect. If that's not clear, post back.

Hey Studio X, are there any advantages to using Media Manager? I have seen problems using it occasionally while moving the material and maintaining folder structure etc has been pretty foolproof in my experience.

MM was very buggy in v4 and v5. So much so it was generally referred to as "Media Mangler" .
It was greatly improved in v6 and v7. I haven't had issues with the later versions.
The main problem with it now is the documentation is not exceptionally clear and a poor choice for how to handle the media can lead to a disaster.

Thanks for chiming in. Are you referring to only naming the folders the same? I've already copy and pasted everything over to the new drive. I haven't done any editing yet b/c I don't want to screw anything up with missing files etc.
Please respond back.
