Please see the attached video for any help that you may provide for Final Cut Pro X.

 

This is a fresh installation of Final Cut Pro X, and the music and sound browser is empty.

 

The files and additional download has been performed properly the files are in the correct location and permissions are set. However Final Cut Pro music and sound browser will not see the files.

 

Please review the attatched video for complete screencast of the problem:

    Is everything up to date softwarewise? What OS are you using? Have you put media in iTunes?

    Some people have reported this problem solved by reinstalling iLife. do you have iMovie and if so does your iTunes music show up there? Do your iPhoto pics appear ok in FCP?

    Media as in music.  First thing I'd try is just deleting the FCPX App from your applications folder and redownloading/installing.  Also, we have been working with FCPX and Mountain Lion since it's release.  Perhaps you have something going on that makes you not able to upgrade to ML, but those two things are where I'd start.

    It's strange because I can't imagine why it's behaving that way.  Your music .itl iTunes library is located in the user/music folder.  Really, these things should all be populating.  We've never encountered this issue on any mac so I'm just wondering if perhaps media is in custom locations or something.  However, watching your youtube above I don't really see what the issue is.  It seems like your issue is with media browser, not so much with FCP or iLife.

     

    Just to throw it out there, but FCPX got a 10.0.7 update this week.  Maybe that hasn't been installed yet?

    Try repairing permissions via disk utility, doing a full restart, and see what happens.
