FCP warning

Hi. FCP refuses to encode about one in ten of my clips with the following warning.

" (folder name) contains unsupported media or has an invalid directory structure. Please choose a folder whose directory structure matches supported media."

I am dubbing over everything quite properly including all sub files etc. Is this happening to anyone else? Is there a work around?

Thanks

MD

You seem to be having extraordinary problems.

I've been using FCP with AVCHD for quite a while - some where in the region of 200-300 hours of footage imported so far - and only have this problem ONCE on a card that really was corrupted through user error.

So, yes there could be problems - but you need to look at your workflow and see if there could be anything else contributing to the problem.

Thanks for the answer Dave ... I completely missed the post. Things smoothed out. Still happens occasionally but bought Toast as a backup solution as it can take the .mts files directly when FCP won't. It produces good pro res files without any fuss. Having a lot of trouble using its other conversion formats though - AVCHD to DVPRO for example. The conversions are always distorted or banded. I've just posted another thread on it. Thanks again
