Need Help with FCP7 import and plug in question.

Hello,
I just registered and would like to ask two questions. Everything else I'll use the search function for but I need the answer right away.
Ok First question. I have a mac pro at home and a intel macbook both with FCS4 during the holiday season I'd like to work on a project on my laptop. Now I have all my files on a 2.0 USB drive(I know its not that fast for video) but this is only temp. while traveling. I'm trying to figure out why it wont import the files into another project. Even when I'm at my home Mac Pro when I try to import a projects footage into another project it doesn't read it. This comes up
"File Error: 0 file(s) recognized, 0 access denied 254 unknown"
But all the files will work in the project that it was originally captured too.
If this helps the codec is sonys HDV 1080 60i converted to Apple ProRes 422(HQ) which I found out I should only use the regular Apple ProRes 422. I'm stuck now b/c I cannot import the files into a new project to work in on my laptop. Plus my Macbook doesn't have Firewire800 so I have no way to get the footage from tape to my laptop other then my USB Hard Drive.
I also have problem importing the files in Motion and Cinema Tools they also are not recognizing the files which is getting me upset since they are FCP7 generated files after I convert them to ProRes.
Whenever I try to import/use the files in anything other the original project they are grey'ed out.
I'm also confused on how to import effects plug-ins I've downloaded effects from apple only to have now directions to import them into the program.
Sorry for the Noob questions I'm a film student learning FCP7 by myself so I have the upper hand come next semester. Thanks in advance.

Can't tell for sure but it sounds as if the drive is not properly formatted, or you do not have correct read/write permissions for it. There is no way you can use this drive with HQ video. You're going to get into problem if you even try.
