    G-Raid drive not properly seen by MC 8.6.x

    I think this was mentioned on the Avid-L2. One of the media drives on my system is a G-Raid enclosure with two 1 TB drives striped together for performance using Apple Disk Utility. Using Media Composer 8.6.x, I can see the drive in the Source Browser and I can export to the drive as it shows up in the export dialogue. What I can’t do is consolidate or transcode or render or import as the drive does not appear (all drive filtering is off). If I try to render and click through the various error messages, in the end it will render with a message saying something like ‘using only available local drive’ and the media can be found on the 'invisible' volume.

    The G-Raid does not show up in the Media Tool, but weirdly, if ‘All Drives’ is selected in the Media Tool dialogue, media on the G-Raid shows up after searching. Before you ask, I have tried the ‘Alldrives’ console command. This is very irritating as I do need to transcode to this drive.

    Drive permissions are Read/Write for all. Mac OS 10.11.6. Drive is connected via Thunderbolt.

    Not an answer per say but an observation, as long as your spec is correct(?), OS X 10.11.6, i think should be used only with 8.6.3 and 8.6.4. Your spec says 8.6.1 which i think should be used only with OS 10.11.5.

    (sorry if this is incorrect info etc!)

    OK - this seemed to be a bizarre User Profile issue. I move from room to room at my university, somethimes using a projector and with a different combination of drives and using different user profiles. Yesterday I could not render anything to my usually rock-solid USB3 drive (not the Thunderbolt drive I mentioned in the first post). Today I trashed all the user profiles and started again and everything seems good.

    I'm now on v 8.10. I see another couple of threads on similar issues. Last week I opened nearly 70 student projects for review and was able to create title media and render to my G-Raid array. Today I can't! AMA linking works to files on the drive and it looked like I could set the G-Raid as the default drive in Media Creation settings but it was greyed out. If I try to create title media, render or use the Media Tool the volume is not visible. In this case a new User Profile did not work, neither did a restart or trashing MC state or making a new project. I expect tomorrow it will all work again.
