Default Workspace empty

I've looked on here but can't find anything that explains this. I've just purchase Projectmix and loaded M-powered onto my Mac G5 (twin/2gig). Protools 7.4 loads up and recognizes the Projectmix and I have recorded files to a second HD (not my system drive) which play back no problem. When I click on workspace, there's nothing there, no HD's no CD no external HD, no files.

Am I doing something wrong?

Please start with the steps in the OS X Setup and General Troubleshooting sticky at the top of this forum, specifically those areas on trashing database files.

Ok I deleted all the Digidesign databases on each volume and emptied trash, then restarted. Still the same, nothing in the workspace. One thing, I tried repairing disk permissions on my C drive and it came up with a message saying first aid failed, no valid packages. This is my main drive where Protools programme sits. I tried running verify disk permissions with the same result. Verify disk however worked no problem.

ok, this worked for me on 10.5.4 with 7.4.2:

apparently, there wasn't an Databases folder created in System/Application Support/Digidesign/

you won't be able to create a folder directly in there, but you can create one named 'Databases' on the desktop and the move it to the Digidesign folder in App Support by authenticating it with your Admin passwd.

hope this helps you/anyone out... if it still doesn't work: i used the 3rd party app ProTools Pref And Database Helper to find any missing folders.
