i have fcp 1, which loads and plays no problem...
i backed up my fcp3 folder, and the hard drive went bad...
i drag fcp3 folder to new hd with fcp1 already installed...
i enter Quicktime pro serial key and get the message you have entered an older version of qt, but it accepts the serial.
when i start fcp3 i get the message: you are missing software. try reinstalling quicktime.

i do not have the upgrade disk, but i do have the serial key and license...is there a quick fix that i can try?

note: i didn't backup the old system folder from bad hd...

any help is appreciated
