>using premiere 5.0
First, the current for PC is 5.0.3 and for Mac 5.0.4
In Windows, have you gone to Control Panel and "locked" the drive letter for your external drive?
I find the problem but not sure how to correct. When premiere opens either on mac or pc I get this message: Where is the File: F:\....... All of these files are on a external drive which is G:\. I don't know why it went to F. F does not exist and I don't know how to tell it to point towards G:\
Go to http://search.microsoft.com/search.aspx?mkt=en-US&setlang=en-US and search for information on how to mandate a drive letter for an external drive
I do not use externals for editing, so I do not know how, but my "slight" memory of reading discussions like this in the past is that you must go into Control Panel and tell Windows to use a specified drive letter for your external drive
