I would appreciate any help on this. Like a dumb azz I removed my external drive to switch USB ports while final cut was open. My media went offline of course so I reconnected it. Then it started dropping frames, so I closed final cut and reopened it. It asked me to reset my scratch disks "video hd is missing" before loading so I pointed it back at my external video drive, then the screen came back and it said " " is missing....with nothing in between the 2 quotes for name. So I hit continue, instead of quit, now when I try to open FCP it just goes thru the regular motions checks to see if a firewire drive is connected and as soon as it is about to open it just closes itself. Ugh anybody heard of this problem. I googled and could not come up with anything.
