4. Choose Copy Project and Events. (This will copy the video that belongs with your project) You can now work straight from your external hard drive or copy it to another computer to work on.

You have the saved project named "?" on your external drive? yes?
On the other new Mac :
Go to your Project Library.
Open that in one window and also the folder containing the saved project named "?" in a separate window.
Then drag it to the saved Project Library
