I have Final Cut pro on my powerbook and upgraded to a macbook pro. I lost my final cut cd's during my last movie (yes, I'm a person who actually buys full retail software) is there a way to get final cut pro off of my powerbook and onto my macbook pro. or do i need to buy the cd's over again? (which i'm beginning to think is my only option)

Talk to Apple and they should be able to send you replacement CDs. There will probably be a small fee, but it'll be much less than buying Final Cut all over again.

Or, depending on the version of Final Cut Pro and whether it'll even run on Intel Macs, you could try using a Firewire cable, Migration Assistant and Target Disk Mode to transfer it across. Migration Assistant isn't the most reliable of methods though, so Nermal's way is probably advisable. :)
