final cut pro with external hard drive

I have the slightly older Macbook Pro. It's full to the brim with music and photos so I bought a Buffalo Ministation 500gb hard drive. I use GoPros quite a lot and they have big files so I keep everything on the hard drive. I have recently installed Final Cut Pro. The problem is that the editting files are too big for my laptop. I have moved everything over to the hard drive and am trying to run it all without needing the laptop, but FCP won't save the files onto the hard drive because it says there isn't enough space, even though there's 270gb free. Any ideas?
