First, unless you've got a separate drive that's very fast and that has a lot of free space I'd turn off disk cache. You're getting the warning because you don't have enough free space for your settings. You change them in the AE preferences settings.
Insufficient media means that the first or last frame of your clip happens before the transition is complete. The solution is to give yourself more room by shifting the transition or by shortening it.
Neither of these is a bug. They are both operator error.
so leaving it on or off will not effect anything is that what your saying?
Yes. Simply ignore that rubbish warning.
I am using a 120 gb SSD dedicated to cache. Getting the same warning. (My Media & Disk Cache preference is set to 100 gb).
Should i ignore it too? Is it some kind of bug?
I mean, does it actually cause that unsafe storage issue mentioned in the warning or slow me down?

It doesn't hurt to empty the disk cache when it is full. Check to see if that drive is full. If it is empty it. The disk cache is there to speed up your performance - it acts like "virtual ram" - it's allows for the "cache work area in background" feature of CS6. They are only temp files from previews you used while working and it's very easy to fill up 100GB. Empty it when it is full. You can turn off the warning though. There is a check box I believe in the lower left corner to that.

That warning appears if you have the disk cache size set to greater than 80% of the available space on the drive. To make the warning go away, set the disk cache size to 80% or less of the free space on your drive.
Even with that warning appearing, nothing is going to be slowed down; it's just telling you that there isn't enough room to use the amount of disk space that you have specified for the cache.
Engin, this is the same answer that you got here:
Yes, i read both of your answers, Todd. Thanks for the help!
