Hey, 

I have RED footage that I need to open through media browser and the drive that holds the footage is not appearing on my Local Drives in media browser. The drive with the footage was given to me on an external drive that has the Time Machine logo. I don't know if that has anything to do with it. I've done the baisc troubleshooting efforts (eject, restart, new project) and I have found no luck. Thank you for any help!

Can you see the media on the drive in Finder? Is there more than one volume on the drive? Can you drag the media directly into the project panel?

I can see the media on the drive in finder and I can directly drag it but in order to import RED files I need to go through media browser. 

We're just going to use a sepreate drive but I was wondering if the reason why is beacasue it is a time machine drive.
