Final Cut Pro X doesn't let me save to the drive but it does let me import from this drive. I need to know how to save my folders to the external and not the internal. iMove and Final Cut Pro 7 both are letting me but not X. Any help would be great.

    yes you can, but maybe not how you would expect to do it....from what I have read in the help user manual you can move your project and/or event to an external harddrive.....this is from the help:

     

    Move a project and its referenced Events to another computer

    1. Connect your external storage device to the computer where your Final Cut Pro project file is located, and verify that the device appears in the Finder.
    2. Verify that Final Cut Pro is installed on the computer to which you’re moving the files.
    3. On the computer where your Final Cut Pro project file is located, select your project in the Project Library.
    4. Choose File > Move Project.
    5. In the window that appears, do the following:
      1. Choose your external storage device from the Location pop-up menu.
      2. Select “Move Project and Referenced Events.”Selecting this option moves the project file and any Events (and all the clips in the Event) referenced by the project file to the disk you chose in the Location pop-up menu.For more information about the options in this window, see Organize projects in the Project Library.
      3. Click OK.The project icon and Events disappear from their current location in the Project Library and Event Library and appear under the storage device icon (indicating that they have been moved).Move Project window
    6. Quit Final Cut Pro, and disconnect the storage device from your computer.WARNING:  Do not disconnect a device when Final Cut Pro is using it.
    7. Connect the storage device to the computer to which you want to move your project, and verify that the device appears in the Finder.
    8. Open Final Cut Pro, and then open the Project Library.The project you moved appears in the Project Library, listed under the connected storage device.Note:  If the storage device does not appear in the Project Library, see Common media management issues.
    9. To move the project off the storage device to the new computer, select the project and choose File > Move Project.
    10. In the window that appears, do the following:The project icon and Events disappear from the external storage device and appear under the startup disk (home icon) in the Project Library, and the Event that contains the project’s media appears under the startup disk (home icon) in the Event Library.
      1. Choose the new computer from the Location pop-up menu.
      2. Select “Move Project and Referenced Events.”
      3. Click OK.Move Project window
