    I don't think this is a fcpx issue, so I am posting it in the Mac OS forum. I got a USB 3.0 256 Lexar drive and formatted it for Mac OS using disk utility in Sierra. When I use it in Final Cut Pro, it seems every few minutes to hang for a while (like 15 seconds), and I get the beach ball, then it wakes back up and allows me to keep editing. Aren't these drives supposed to not do that? Am I missing something?

    You've probably already done this, but...

    ... have you opened the "energy saver" pane in System Preferences, and then UNchecked the option to "put hard disks to sleep when possible" ....??
