I just upgraded to Final Cut Express 4, I was running Final Cut 3 earlier. When I try to put the clips into the Final Cut 4, i get a "MEDIA OFFLINE" message on the clip and it is Red.

I am well aware that I need to upgrade the clips, but I am not too sure how to do so.. any answers for me? or suggestions?

What that means is Final Cut is not able to find the cuts. If you have only the project file and no video clips you will get the error.

There should be an option in Final Cut to resync the clips. Under Final Cut Pro it is called reconnect media. You may also need to rerender the clips.
