    Media Drive Selection

    I'm looking for a way for Media Composer to not see all my drives as media drives. When I render, I have drives that know I don't want Media Composer to ever write to. Is there a way to adjust this?

    What I do is to place a file named "Avid MediaFiles" on the drives to which I don't want to write. Now, when I last did this, it wold only work if I created the file on a PC.

    You also have the media creation section of your user settings, which allows you to assign specific drives for specific media creation purposes, as you desire.

    it doesnt really matter what kind of file it is, since the trick only works if you delete the extension. Easiest to create a blank text document, rename it, then delete the extension. This only works in OSX if you show extensions via the finder preference, then delete the extension.
