Currently Being ModeratedMay 15, 2008 4:40 AM (in response to OS 9.1 is the best!!!)It sounds like the new drive is not formatted correctly. What format is the drive? It should read hfs extended.
If it's new right out of the box, it is always a good idea to format a drive, EVEN IF IT SAYS ON THE BOX that it is formatted for mac.G5 quad, 6 gigs, 2x500, nvidia 7800, 2.5TB Brian Conner Special, couple g-raids,, Mac OS X (10.4.5), 4 other macs, various. 2 minute walk to the beach.
Currently Being ModeratedMay 16, 2008 6:56 AM (in response to Jim Cookman)I formatted the drive in hfs even though I won't install software.
My old HD worked great but I deleted the project and even after I copied back FCP won't start up!!!
I too thought it could come from the new hd but obviously it's not.
don't understand what I have done wrong....

Currently Being ModeratedMay 16, 2008 7:01 AM (in response to OS 9.1 is the best!!!)Go to http://fcprescue.com - download the version for FCP5. Run it and trash your prefs. Try starting up FCP again. Post back.

Currently Being ModeratedMay 20, 2008 4:59 AM (in response to Patrick Sheffield)Hi,
thank you for your support, I did try FCPrescue about ten times but nothing changed so I just did what we do in OS9 I trashed the pref and everything went back to normal.
My other problem now seems to come from the external HD, I started another project but after a while I had to force quite several times FCP cos it would not respond. THen I relaunch the finder and now the dock is back to the first time I installed OSX!!!
is it related to FCP behaviour ?! have I got all my settings reset?! I'm gonna perform another time an optimization and directory maintenance with techtool cos this is upsetting me.
I also gonna check cables etc cos this new drive is not working properly.
