I just installed a new Drobo5N NAS and find that projects and events in iMovie are not visible.  iMovie sees the NAS but the dreaded yellow triangle shows up and I cannot transfer projects to the NAS.  Aperture works fine.

I see lots of churn in this forum with this issue but everything appears to be a bit older and/or on Leopard . 

I see the "defaults write -app iMovie allowNV -bool true" trick which I may eventually try but thought I'd ask first in the event that folks have already figured this out.


I'm running Lion (10.8.2) and iMovie 11.


Thanks for any help

    You are not alone. I am having similar problems with a Drobo 5N.
