Help with linking files

Jun 12, 2013 5:24 AM

Tags: #premiere_pro_cs6

I have several projects with 1000's of little clips in them- that have become unlinked- normally I can just use link media and that resolves it, but it seems like there has been either name changes to them (numbering in project panel seems different) or pathway to my ext hard drive has changed-help appreciated!!!

    >pathway to my ext hard drive has changed

     

    eSata or USB drive?

     

    Windows or Mac?

     

    If Windows, there is a way to LOCK the drive letter for a USB drive

     

    Search http://search.microsoft.com/search.aspx?mkt=en-US&setlang=en-US for help

    Wait another week and update to Premiere Pro CC.  It's new Link and Locate feature may come in very handy.

    If on a PC, you can change the drive letter for your external to what it was, when you Imported the Assets. I strongly suggest that one do this in the OS of any computer, where that external will be used.

     

    Good luck,

    Are you on a Mac, or a PC?

     

    If PC, what OS version do you have?

     

    The easiest way to find out exactly how your version of Windows sets drive letters is to go to Help, then type in "drive letter," without the quotation marks in the query box. You will then get all references to drive letter, and choose Setting Drive Letter, or similar syntax. That will step you through the process, and probably even provide a link to the disc management utility for your version.

     

    If you are on a Mac, then it would be Volume Name, but I cannot help with anything more than that, being a PC-only guy.

     

    Good luck,

     

    Hunt

    ..not sure if savable as I cant remember original drive name ☹

    It doesn't matter what the names were... just what they are now.

    Once you have everything re-named correctly and have all files linked,

    save the project and the problem should disappear.

    I seem to have to do I at a time, even within the same folder...

    To relink all media at once:

    With the root of Project Panel active, select all (Ctrl + A).

    Right-click a missing media file and select "Link Media...".
