Logic 9 missing samples after migration and download

    I've recently changed computers using the setup assistant to migrate my files and programs from my old iMac to a MacBook Pro. Until today I thought that that migration had been 100 % successful. Then I noticed that almost all the bass patches from the Garageband instruments folder were missing. I checked the menu under additional content downloads and noticed that I was missing about 250 mb of Garageband samples. I download this and it now shows that I have all the content. The trouble is Logic still can't find the samples. It still shows them as missing. Where would they be?

    Unless you can get hold of a copy of Redmatica's EXS Manager, your options may be more complicated. I have read that Logic uses Spotlight to keep track of sample files, and one way to solve such problems is to put the drive that contains the samples on a Private tab in Spotlight, and then take it off again to force Spotlight to re-index it. Worth a try, although I guess it could take some time depending how full the drive is!

    Do you have to old drive available? I would double check the sample locations on the old drive, and make sure they are in the same location on the new drive... and yea, digging around can take a bit of time.

    Do you have any experience digging around a "Library" folder?

    As it turned out, on the advice of an Apple logic expert, I did a complete re-install from the original disks. Now everything works fine.
