    Edius 2.5 problem
    I have Edius 5, but I never got rid of Edius 2.5 on my old computer and in some ways prefer it to the newer versions. The other day I captured video from a camcorder directly into Edius 2.5, put it on the timeline and did extensive editing. I made an .avi movie from the timeline and it played correctly in WMPlayer. Then …….., for whatever reason, I decided to relocate the captured files and the avi file to different folders and then …. my problems began.
    When I open the project it shows the clips on the timeline ‘grayed out’ and the dialogue box opens requesting that clips be restored. Some clips not found. Restore clips? However, when I try to restore them by going to the new folder where they now appear to reside, it is not possible.

    (Error messages state:
    1. Failed to restore clips. The chosen files do not match the original files information.
    2. Cannot delete. Access is denied. Make sure the disc is not full or write protected and that the file is not in use
    3. Windows Media Player cannot access the file. The file might be in use, you might not have access to the computer where the file was stored or your proxy settings may not be correct.

    Also, now I am unable to move, rename or even delete any of these files in the new location. Lastly, the avi file and the captured clips will no longer play in Windows Media Player.

    Anybody have any idea what I did wrong and what I might do to correct this problem without having to go back and re-capture hours of video and do hours worth of editing over again?
    Thanks for your help.

      Thanks so much for taking the time to respond to my plea. Actually, I have tried restarting (and also unplugging), but the problem persists. It is rather perplexing in that clips (avi files) that are made on Edius 5 on a different computer (Dell) and then saved to an external HD MAY also be affected when opened on my older computer where I have Edius 2.5 installed (this is a work station supplied by Guy Graphix several years ago).

      Although the files 'sometime' MAY open in WMPlayer, once they are rejected by it they will not open again without re-starting (and that is no guarantee that they will in fact open again). Those files do continue to behave normally when the external HD is re-attached to the new computer (Dell).

      I think I have the old setup discs in storage for the Guy Graphics machine and expect to go looking for them within the next day or two. I've used this system successfully over the years and this is a rather recent problem that never existed before.

      The particular clips I am interested in were NOT captured using the DV Capture program that came with the work station. They were captured directly into Edius 2.5 instead. It rather seems related insofar as the clips captured using the DV Capture program seem to function normally (i.e: can move, copy delete and/or play them on the Edius timeline and/or WMPlayer.)

        These were not reference clips were they?

          No, the file extension is .avi and in fact when first captured using Edius, they worked fine on the time line and obviously were capable of being used normally insofar as I had no trouble moving them to a different folder. That's when the problem arose. Now that they are in a different folder I cannot use, copy, move or even delete.
          Hmmmmmm.

            if the file size was larger than 4GB and you moved them to a Fat32 formatted drive, trouble could strike, I never tried but can imagine

              Anton,
              Thanks for your input, but 'no' and 'no'. Actually have used these particular drives for video over several years without incident and the captured clips in question were not larger than 4gb.

              I have since re-captured the same material, but rather than using the capture facility of EDIUS 2.5 which I have used successfully in the past :), this time I used the DV Capture program that came with EDIUS and opened the file in EDIUS without incident. Editing has been normal, but when I tried to go back to the problem clips they were still unusable.

              The only overt thing I did which seems to have created the problem, was to move the original captured clips to a different folder where they immediately became unusable. Strange, eh?

                I no longer have 2.5 so I can't even test such a file if you send one

                the oldest system I have here is 4.61 (a great performer actually)

                  Ah the sweet mystery of life in this world of computers. Kinda' like relationships. Some things you just can't live with and yet you just can't live without.

                  Not a big problem. Since I can't find a way to even delete the files, when I have everything else off of the that drive I will do a deep cleaning of it, reformat etc........if all else fails I'll simply shoot it.

                  I do appreciate your efforts.

                  My best wishes for a Happy New Year,

                    Can't delete the files, even using Win Explorer or the command line intrface?
                    Are they write protected/read-only by any chance?
