    Forcing Media Composer to find new locations

    I'm in a situation where I'm working on a project from home that was formerly on Unity and the clips still are pointing to partitions on Unity that no longer exist. Relinking doesn't seem to work. Is there a way to force media composer to "forget" these Unity partitions and look for the media files elsewhere?  Thanks.

    Have you tried deleting the databases on your local media drives?  Rescanning the drives should rebuild the databases and then all the media should be visible in its correct location.

    Yeah...that's one of the first things I tried. Thanks.

    Do the media databases rebuild at all?

    Are you sure that file path on your media drive is correct?  To make sure, create a new piece of media to that drive and make sure a new directory isn't built.
