Currently Being ModeratedSep 26, 2009 7:24 PM (in response to Kontra)Had a similar issue with my Final Cut projects. May have something to do with users/permissions (I had to do a clean install of my entire system and re-installed Final Cut.) Not sure if that has anything to do with it.
Found a site that made the following recommendations that worked for me:
1) Control click on your FCP project file (right click) and select "Open With"
2) Open with TextEdit
3) Select "File/Save As..."
4) Save as another file name with the .txt extension
5) Find your newly created file and change extension to .fcp (may need to go to Finder/Preferences/Advanced tab and select "Show All Extensions" to get file extensions to appear)
6) Open and edit at will!
Hope this helps.

Currently Being ModeratedNov 16, 2009 2:23 PM (in response to Txiquim ©)Another way to do this (and much quicker too) is with Type and Creator Changer. Just browse to the location of the file and set Type to FCPF and Creator to KeyG.
And an even easier method is to use Project Repair: http://www.digitalrebellion.com/fcs_maintenance.htm
