    Events and Projects Librarys Missing in FCPX (but folders and videos in finder exist)


    I am now seriously annoyed at this.
    All of my Events and Project Librarys are missing when I load up Final Cut Pro X. As its loading the splash screen it spins through that its reading the event library, restoring windows etc etc
    But when its fully loaded up there are NO Events or Projects listed.
    Can anyone advise what to do here?

    Previous to this I had a solution where I kept rebooting the computer until they finally all showed up in FCPX again, but this has now completely stopped working.

    All of my files still exist correctly, but its just like FCPX doesn't see them (they are all sitting on my internal HD)

    I have files called

    CurrentVersion.fcpevent

    sitting in
    Movies>Final Cut Events>(Name of Event)

    and files called

    CurrentVersion.fcpproject

    Sitting in
    Movies>Final Cut Projects> (Name of project)


    All of my video media exists in
    Movies>Final Cut Events>Name of Project>
    Original Media
    in their individual folders

    If I double click from Finder and try to open a
    CurrentVersion.fcpevent

    I get the pop up
    The document “CurrentVersion.fcpevent” could not be opened.

    If I double click from Finder and try to open a
    CurrentVersion.fcpproject

    I get the pop up
    The document “CurrentVersion.fcpproject” could not be opened.

    Everytime I start up FCPX it creates a
    NEW EVENT (plus the date)
    in my Final Cut Events folder.


    So, any help anyone?
    I'm now thinking what a terrible choice it was to ever bother buying and spending weeks learning how to use FCPX properly and that I should have used a different video editing program instead.

    This is seriously depressing :(
