Default Volumes Unsuitable For Playback??

Hi Everyone,

I was hoping that someone could give me some insight as to why Pro Tools is giving me the message:

"169 audio files are on volumes unsuitable for playback. Would you like to copy them to a suitable volume?"

Everything was working fine a few days ago but now I'm getting this. I'm working on a huge TV show so I don't have the space/patience/time to copy it all over to another drive (and besides I'd like to figure out what's going on here). I'm running the session off of a Lacie d2 drive, is the drive locked or something?

Help me please!!!!!

Hey Ryan

I can't tell you why it's happening... but you can try this:

go to the SHOW WORKSPACE window... (under the Windows menu)
and locate your drive.. and make sure its got a "R" in the A collum.

Can't thnk of any reason for it to have chnaged.. but this is where PT figures out if a drive can used for Playback, Recording, ect.

Good Luck
