Q: When I open the exercise files, the media is all offline. I tried to reconnect using the steps in Chapter 14, but that isn't working. What do I do?

A: Make sure to watch the "Using the Exercise Files" video. The Avid MediaFiles folder must be located at the root directory of the media drive (i.e. not inside any other folders, such as the exercise files folder), or all media will be offline. Here's a summary.

1. In the lynda exercise files, there is a folder called Avid MediaFiles. Inside of that folder is a folder called MXF, and inside of the MXF folder is a folder called 1.

2. Rename the "1" folder to "2" (or any other number).

3. In a separate window, open the MXF folder of the Avid MediaFiles folder that's already on your system (not the exercise files folder). Drag the "2" folder from the exercise files to this MXF folder. You will now have both a "1" and a "2" folder. 
The media for this course will be in the "2" folder.
