I recently upgraded from FCP 3 to 4 and am having problems logging footage to an external fire wire drive. When I set my capture scratch to the external drive and capture the logged file the computer gets locked in thinking mode as if trying to find the drive. As a result I log and capture to my local 80G drive and then move the files over to the external drive. This process takes a long time and as it turns out when I open the FCP file it gives me an error message saying it cannot find the project. Can anyone help me find what I'm doing wrong. My objectives are to either 1) capture directly to the external, or 2) capture to my local drive and successfully move the project to the external. Thoughts?
