He may have had the media on the C drive or even the F drive and the USB thumb drive might be seen as the G or H drive. Just find one video clip on the drive and Premiere Pro will find all the other clips and images on the USB drive. It is that simple.
.prprokj ( file)...what is that?
You can not edit from media on a USB stick if that is what you are attempting to do
To edit and open a project..you need the media somewhere you can point Premiere to and you need a valid project file. Preferably all on local drives.
prproj* sorry and thanks i will try those
USB2 is too slow for editing... copy the video folder from the USB stick to your video data drive
My 3 hard drives for video editing are configured as...
1 - 320Gig Boot for Win7 64bit Pro and ALL program installs (2)
2 - 320Gig data for Win7 paging swap file and video project files
When I create a project on #2 drive, the various work files follow,
so my boot drive is not used for the media cache folders and files
3 - 1Terabyte data for all video files... input & output files (1)
(1) for faster input/output if you have 4 drives
- use drive 3 for all source files
- use drive 4 for all output files
(2) only 60Gig used, for Win7 & CS5 MC & MS Office & other smaller programs
Search Microsoft to find out how to redirect your Windows paging swap file
