I recently bought a new hard drive because I had a close call with my older one. The old one was a 500GB LaCie (Firewire 400), and the new one is a 1TB LaCie (Firewire 800). So I copied all of the files from the old one to the new one and now I can’t use my song files on the new HD. I can copy songs to my internal drive desktop and use them and can import and export without a problem. The problem is I don’t have enough space to keep my projects on the internal HD so now I have to copy a song at a time to work on it, and then I guess put it back to make space. Any ideas?
I connected it directly with Firewire 800 (I also tried firewire 400, and USB). I’m on a Mac Book Pro running 10.5.8.
These are the errors I get:
When I try to open a project file from the external drive it only says: Can not open project file “name of song.cpr” !
When I try to import a file from the external drive it says: Error: Medium type not supported or invalid medium!
When I try to export to it, it says “unexpected error”
One more thing: I hooked up my old HD (which didn’t want to mount but finally did and is clicking again, but still works) and I am able to open these projects. (the original projects that I copied to my new HD.
I also just copied some Cubase projects from my desktop to my old HD and they opened although one didn’t and I got the same error. I copied that particular song again and then it worked. Weird.
