DIRECTOR IS NOT WRITABLE 03 Aug 2022 01:12 #121683

JUST UPDATED TO MACOS MONTERREY FROM BIGSUR LATEST VERSION EVERYTHING WAS WORKING FINE BUT WHEN I STARTED WITH FCP10 VER.10.6.3 ALL OF MY ARCHIVES THAT I WAS WORKING BEFORE THE UPDATE DISAPPEARED FROM THE FAVORITES SIDEBAR IN THE IMPORT WINDOW ( I HAVE THE ORIGINALS ON AN EXTERNAL DRIVE) AND WHEN I GET THE SAME SD CARD THAT I USED WHEN CREATING THE ORIGINAL ARCHIVE I CAN NOT CREATE A NEW ARCHIVE, I GET AN ERROR SAYING THAT THE DIRECTOR IS NOT WRITABLE . I HAVE VISITED THE INFO WINDOW AND RENEW ALL MY PERMISSIONS OF THE DRIVE. WHAT CAN I DO TO GET RID OF THIS ERROR AND GET BACK MY ARCHIVES IN THE IMPORT WINDOW SIDEBAR

THANK YOU ALL POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS ARE WELCOME

I THINK YOU MEAN "DIRECTORY" AND NOT "DIRECTOR". ANYWAY, HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO DO. IN THE FINDER, HIGHLIGHT THE VOLUME (HARD DRIVE, ETC) THAT YOU WANT TO WRITE TO. RIGHT CLICK AND CHOOSE "GET INFO". AT THE BOTTOM RIGHT, CLICK THE LOCK ICON TO UNLOCK IT. CHANGE THE PERMISSIONS TO READ AND WRITE. IT IS OK IF "EVERYONE" IS LEFT READ ONLY BUT YOU MIGHT AS WELL CHANGE THAT TOO UNLESS YOUR COMPUTER IS SHARED IN ANY WAY.

OH YES, I SHOULD HAVE MENTIONED THAT AFTER YOU CHANGE THE PERMISSIONS YOU'LL NEED TO RESTART FINAL CUT PRO, BUT OF COURSE IT NEVER HURTS TO REBOOT. I'M GLAD YOU GOT EVERYTHING WORKED OUT!
