    Avid Newscutter auto-creating a "DATA" bin

    We have six edit bays all running Newscutter v.8.0.3 on an isis system.  Since this monday whenever the application is launched and a project is opened a pop up appears that reads "no files found on V:" and a bin titled "DATA" is created.  My hunch was that we have a drive on our network mapped to V: that is our VizRT effects drive and thought could be causing it but again, only a hunch.  Not sure why these keep popping up.  Thanks for your time.

    Re: Avid Newscutter auto-creating a "DATA" bin

    Sorry just saw this today. It also could mean someone was either trying to consolidate to an external drive and unplugged it mid-process, or the reverse - someone pulled out a drive while importing or accessing via AMA. If you look visually confirm no drives are plugged in called "V:" but keep getting the message, then plug in a flash drive, go to My Computer/Manage and reassign this drive to V: Then in Newscutter, save a title to it. Then Safely remove hardware and you should be all set. It's a goofy workaround, but it has worked for me in the past. If it still gives you issues, please post back, thanks!
