Importing from hard drive

Time:October 11

mac os x version 10 desktop Mac OS X (10.4.8)
I transfered projects and folders from my laptop into lacie fire wire 250 GB drive and am trying to import to my desktop apple mac. After I hit import and proceed onto lacie drive and contents, the section where I have to click and start importing, appears blank with no images. However the info screen for the folder shows that I have images stored there.
Any clues as to why this might be happening?

First, I moved specific projects from laptop macbook pro to a lacie fire wire drive.
This doesn't give enough information to troubleshoot your problem. Specifically, how did you do this? When you say you moved specific projects, did you use the menu option File>Export>Export Project?
If you did use File>Export>Export Project, and you are using referenced files, this will not move the images, it will only export the adjustment, keyword, and metadata imformation along with the tree structure for the project/folders/albums.
To import an Exported Project you must use the menu option File>Import>Projects (don't use the blue import arrow icon). To move your referenced files from your laptop to the external drive, you should use File>Relocate Masters.
It may just be easier to do this for each project you wish to move:
1) Make a backup of your Aperture Library.
2) On the laptop, select a Project and use "File>Consolidate Masters for Project" to move the Referenced image files into the Aperture Library as Managed image files.
3) On the laptop, use "File>Export>Export Project" and navitage to a folder on the external drive to export the project to the external drive.
4) Connect the external drive to the desktop and on the desktop use "File>Import>Project" to import the project into the desktop Aperture Library.
5) On the desktop, use "File>Relocate Masters for Project" to move the Managed images out of the Aperture Library as Referenced image files on the external drive.
If you are starting with a fresh, empty Aperture Library on the desktop, you could also try this:
1) Backup your Aperture Library.
2) On the laptop, select the "All Images" Smart Album under the Library Icon, select all images in the browser by clicking on the first one and choosing menu option "Edit>Select All" and then choosing the menu option "File>Relocate Masters" to move all image files in your Aperture Library to the external drive (they will still be Referenced images).
2) Move the Aperture Library file from the Pictures folder on your laptop to the Pictures folder on your desktop. (If there is already an empty Aperture Library in your desktop Pictures folder, then move it somewhere else, or delete it if you're sure it's empty.)
3) Start up Aperture on your desktop with the external drive attached and it should find the Referenced files.
4) If for some reason it does not recognize the location of the Referenced files, then select the "All Images" Smart Album under the Library Icon, select all images in the browser by clicking on the first one and choosing menu option "Edit>Select All" and then choosing the menu option "File>Manage Referenced Files". Click on one of the files with a broken reference then navigate to the file's location on the external drive. Click the "Reconnect all button."
