Premiere Cs5.5 Keeps crashing when linking media- please help!

Apr 12, 2013 10:55 AM

I have my project all set in the timeline, however everytime I open Premiere, it shows at least one of my clips not linked. So I go to link media and Premiere crashes. When I exit premiere and come back into it, the clip is now there, however not rendered. After I render it, ANOTHER clip that Premiere randomly chooses is now not linked, in which I go to link it and Premiere crashes- as the vicious cycle contines!!


I am working with Windows 7 with 16GB free on my C drive and 8GB of Ram



Anyone know what's going on here?

    >16GB free on my C drive


    Is that your ONLY drive?


    Even if you have the required/advised separate drive for video files, only 16G free on your C drive COULD be your problem... since depending on where your temporary files are stored, you MAY simply be running out of working space when PPro tries to create working files


    Drive C space


    If you do not have a separate data drive... never a partition for more on partitions... you need to buy/install a 2nd 7200 rpm drive for your video files


    My 3 hard drives for video editing are configured as...


    1 - 320Gig Boot for Win7 64bit Pro and ALL program installs


    2 - 320Gig data for Win7 paging swap file and video project files

    When I create a project on #2 drive, the various work files follow,

    so my boot drive is not used for the media cache folders and files


    3 - 1Terabyte data for all video files... input source & output export files

    1. How many physical disks do you have?


    2. What is the manufacturer's rated capacity of each?


    3. What partitions have you created on each physical disk?


    4. List all your volumes and the remaining free space.
