    URGENT! Need FCE 4 help!
    I'm running Final Cut Express 4 on my Macbook (White, 2007, with an updated 2GB RAM) and I'm doing a school project that is due very soon!

    I'm about halfway through editing my video when I go to drag a regular old clip onto the timeline when I get an "operation not allowed" pop-up! I can't figure out why this clip or why now. If anyone can help that would be amazing! My project is due soon and I can't afford to do something else.

    I do have audio running underneath it but it was never a problem before this! I will include a screenshot if that helps anyone. I really hope there is an expert here who can fix this for me!

    Do you have the original media? Maybe you try re-importing that clip and then dragging it into there, the file may be corrupt. I am by no means an expert. This is just why I would try off the bat.

    Yes, I do have all original media but the message was popping up to any clip or action I tried. I guess I could try deleting and re-importing all the clips again.

    PS. A while after I posted this, my FCE decided to let me do things again. So we'll see how long this lasts. Keep posting solutions in case it happens again. It makes me nervous knowing that it could happen again since I might get to a point where it doesn't just go back to working and I might have 3/4 of a video that is garbage.
