When you return to FCP to continue editing our project, check to make sure the media folder you created the first time for your Scratch Disk is still assigned, rather than setting up a new media folder each time you edit. An important new feature of FCP 4 occurs whenever you start up FCP. If the media drives that are set in the Scratch Disk tab are not actually present, FCP will pause prior to opening our project and ask you what to do (see Figure 2-9).

If you work with a PowerBook portable and frequently use FCP without your primary Scratch Disk attached, this feature will be very useful; just remember to reset to the primary Scratch Disk assignment when it becomes available.

However, these inexpensive drives must be configured correctly, and you must access and assign them in FCP appropriately if you expect them to deliver satisfactory performance.
