    Media Access Volume Manager

    Running version 4.0.2 with success for a period of time.  Suddenly, today,  when I tried to launch AVID MC, the application does not load but hangs on the Media Composer splash screen.  At the bottom of the splash screen is says, "Initiating Avid Media Acess Volume Manager".  I assumed that MC became corrupted and uninstalled MC 402 and installed Version 4.0.5.  No change, it still hangs on "Initiating.....Manager".  Any suggestions.

    Hi,

    It may help to delete your media database files.  Exit Avid. Then open up your Avid MediaFiles folder and find all the database files (named msmFMID.pmr and msmMMOB.mdb). Delete them. Restart Avid, and the system will rebuild them. See if that fixes your problem.

    good luck,

    Carl

    Carl,

    Thank you, you got me to the answer.  The media database files did not help, however, during that exercise, I oened the DVD burner and found a blank DVD.  Removing it solved my problem......boy am I red faced!!
