If you have a "Hybrid Drive" setup (one internal SSD and one internal HD)
and you have projects and events on your secondary drive, you need to

get info on the secondary drive

and click the check box "ignore ownership on this volume"

NOTE: Optical Flow analysis for smooth retiming is broken in OS X 10.8.

Just installed mountain lion.
Big issue.

I have an iMac with the "Hybrid Drive" 2 HD option (1 SSD / 1 HD).
All of my projects and events are on the 2 TB conventional HD.

There still all there in the finder, but FCPX won't even acknowledge that this 2nd hard drive exists.

It sees my external drive fine, but doesn't see the secondary internal hard drive.
It's not even like a "reconnect media" issue. It simply cannot navigate to that HD as a source and all of the projects and events are just not there anymore.

Even if a fix comes, i doubt it will just put everything back the way it was.

Called Apple Support

If you have a similar issue to mine.

Right-Click and "Get Info" on your secondary HD.

Click the lock at the bottom right (administrator password)

click the checkbox at the bottom left - Ignore ownership on this volume

click the lock to close it

close the window

Launch FCPX.

Your projects and events should be available.

It works. I just ran it, even edited a film and saved it.

Final Cut Pro 6.0.6 works fine so far on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. Starting it and editing a project was no problem.

It works for me until I try to edit MPEG-2 files. It refuses to play these. Even Quickview and Quicktime will not play these.

Was all working fine before I updated :S

Final Cut Pro X opens fine but I've experienced some audio issues (crackling and popping sounds like dust on an old record) with AAC and MP3 files when imported into a project. Took my MBP it into the Apple Store and they said it was a known issue. Downgraded to Snow Leopard and the issues went away.
