New to version 6 is the Search Media option, the third icon in the Input wizard .
This is a useful tool for tracking down those hard-to-find media clips that exist on your computer. The interface contains many filtering options that you should use to stop a search from taking too long and to pinpoint the results with a little more accuracy.
The window in Figure 3.12 has been set up to search just the F drive for images. The results of that search are displayed in the top-right window.

By highlighting those images you want (using Ctrl+left-click and Shift+left-click) and then pressing the Down arrow, you can quickly select which images you want to import.
Clicking the Import button finishes this process and places your imports into a specially created Folder and Rack (Figure 3.13).

Audio, video, and images racks are automatically created during the import stage using the Search Media method, creating a pretty neat and quick method of collating your imports.
