THE FIX: I grouped all files together in my project, then dragged them to a new section (Vid 1 became vid 2, vid 2 became vid 3)
CS3 "recognized" the clips. I then went to the Edit menu and selected "Undo" to move the clips back to the original location. CS3 continued to recognize the clips, as it should have in the first place.
While Project corruption is always a possibility, the first thing that I look to with sudden "Media Offline," is any change in the drive structure. Have you added any drives, or moved any of the Project, or Assets in any way?
Can you use Link Media to reestablish the Link? Does this Link hold? I know that with 400 Assets, having to do a manual re-Linking is not something to be taken lightly. Had to do it for 1400 once and that got very old quickly.
Have you attempted to:
1.) Open your last AutoSave file? Note: check the dates of these files, as the incremented number, say "5," might not be the latest.
2.) Open New Project and Import your malfunctioning Project into it?
If none of the above work, please list your system's complete I/O setup, HDD specs, free space, where various aspects of your Project are stored, where the program files are stored, and the Page File for Windows. Be as complete as you possibly can, and list any changes, however small, that might have been made.
