I got a 2 TB portable hard drive to store my video's. I install the driver and transfer all my pictures and videos that I had in my adobe 9.0 and once it transfers it said it would erase all the data from the program drive but it is still their.is their a tutorial on the best way to upload data onto a portable hard drive to use in my adobe projects?
It depends on the method you used to transfer all of your media files to your hard drive.
Did you use Windows Explorer to copy files -- or did you use the Elements Organizer or did you use Premiere Elements' Project Archiver tool?
BTW, make sure your hard drive is formatted NTFS rather than FAT32, as they come from the factory. Otherwise your projects will choke on the FAT32 file size limit.
