[SOLVED] there are no material drives attached... 3 years, 2 months ago #4657

WARNING!! There are no material drives attached to the system. You will be unable to record or import any file.

What do I have to do?

Hi lightworks01. You need to make sure that you are logged on as an administrator, and will probably also need to right-click the Lightworks icon and choose 'Run as administrator' as well. Please try that and let us know how you get on.

"Run as Administrator" works (Vista 64)

What if you can't run as an administrator?

Think school network. Are there any workarounds?

Then - i think - you have to ask the networkadmin to give it free and let LW run as admin...

My school division IT has set it to run as admin and has given modify rights to the lightworks folder but it still will not work.

The intention is for students to use this program so being logged in as a administrator is not going to be an option in a school division with over 12,000 students.

Any other work arounds?

Hi jmclellan. Lightworks needs at least one of the attached hard-drives to have two folders in its root directory - 'Material' and 'Sound'. If you can arrange for these folders to be created (and writable) you may have some success.
