    Difficulty opening older project

    I have the project files archived and the drive ready. I tried copying the old project file, Avid 8, into the 2018.12.3. It's not showing up in Avid but does appear in the harddrive folder where the projects are stored. 

    Any thoughts or workarounds?

    Thanks!

    Within the project folder, do you see a .avp file along with .avb and .avs files? These should be at the first level of the project folder for MC to recognize the project.

    with older projects its easier to create a new project with the same or similar name. Then copy the required avid bins from the old to the new (with .avb extensions) at OS level.

    Create a new project with the very same name of the old one (case sensitive), or media management with the MediaTool will be needlessly complicate.
