Premiere 6 media files randomly going ‘media pending’ or offline

I am running Adobe Premiere 6 on a Mac.


System spec:


8 core Intel Xeon 2.26Ghz

16GM Ram

Nvidia Quadro 4000

Internal Raid 0


Mac OS 10.7.5

Adobe Premiere



I am having a serious issue with existing footage randomly getting offline upon re-opening a project.

The footage is where it always was, so I can rule out broken links.


Strangely enough the ‘offline’ footage also does not show up in the ‘reconnect dialogue’ when opening

a project.


When I export the timeline/sequence in question as XML and import it into Final Cut Pro 7 is seems

that the log infor was lost in those paricular clips. They show up as ‘unknown’ with no log info.


I am currently trying to make a switch from FCP 7 to Premiere 6. But this database corruption

has happened a couple of times right now and is obviously a complete dealbreaker.


Any advice would be very much appreciated
