Every time I try to load footage from an external HD (Lacie Rugged 4TB) into Fusion studio, it is not recognized. I can copy it to the desktop and it works fine, but I need to be able to work entirely from my external HD. What is going on? Anyone have any ideas?

It is always recommended to import from your local drive.

Your External hard drive may simply not be fast enough to work with 2 high res video streams and stitch them together into 1 piece of footage. I have also had this issue with an external USB 3.0 drive. Just because it's a USB 3.0 drive doesn't mean you're getting USB 3.0 speeds. Often times the hard discs use a 3.0 or USB C connection, but the drives themselves are cheap and very slow with terrible transfer rates. If you want to edit from an external drive, you'll need an external SSD with tested fast transfer speeds (and those are not cheap).
