    Final Cut Pro 7
    Okay, so I have this project I need to open and my computer fried. I have a friends old Mac with an older version of fcp and tried to open the fcp project, but it says itís from a newer version. I DONíT have my disks. Do I have any options?

    Not many options are open to you. Without the original disks and serial number you can't install FCP 7. You may be able to find a legal copy of FCP 7 on eBay, one that has an unused serial number and can be installed. Other than that, I'm not sure what you can do to get your project done.

    What version of FCP is your friend's Mac running? I'm assuming you made the project with FCP 7 and his mac is running an older version of it? If his Mac is running FCP 7 and you used FCP X to edit it then you should be able to go onto the App store with your Apple ID and redownload it to the new computer.

    In that case if you can't find your disks, and don't have a backup of your computer that you can restore from, your best bet is to see if you can find a copy of FCP 7 on ebay I looked on there to see if any were available, and it looks like you have a few options that are currently listed.
