          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.

                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
