I started a project on Macpro tower, then copied that project with all it's events and media to a portable hard drive to work on it with my Macbook Pro.  I did not import anything into the event for this project while working on the Macbook, but I did create some compound clips.  After working on the Macbook, plugged the portable drive into my Macpro tower and copied the project back to the hard drive in the Mac Pro.  I performed the copy via drag and drop withinn Final Cut Pro X. I then began to work on the project.  I did not re-copy the events and clips back to the Mac Pro tower, because they are all there already.
Now, I find that when I eject the portable drive from the Mac Pro tower, the compound clips show up as a missing event, even though the clips within those compound clips are in the current project.  I've tried to re-link the media, but there doesn't seem to be a way to re-link the compound clip.  I could just trash the new project, but I've done some work on it that I don't want to lose.  Any help would be appreciated.

I am glad you got it working. But something did change. You created compound clips in the Event Library when you added them to your project on the MBPro. When you opened the project on your tower there were no compound clips in the event library without the portable drive connected. Once you copied the new events onto the tower event library FCP was happy and all you need to do is replace the old compounds in the timeline with the new ones.
