On a Mac?
Yes, I guess that's pretty important. I'm running OS 10.8.3 and CS6.
At risk of sounding like a moron I can't find the aggregate devices plist file. I tried to locate it through finder with no luck. I'm running a later version than that troubleshoot suggests to upgrade to and I've restarted premiere to see if it was just fluke and unfortunately it still freezes on one frame.
Thank you for helping!
I am on Windows, but I do have some saved links... one of these MAY help

Troubleshooting guide for Mac freeze
Unfortunately that didn't work but thank you for the suggestions. I ended up opening a new sequence and exporting the video as H264 and reimporting the new sequence into the project. For whatever reason this seemed to work. I have a feeling I'll have to do this for the majority of my clips which is taking forever but at least there's a work around.
Thanks again fellas!

If you are going to transcode your original media files
before editing, I would recommend something other than H.264.
Ut Video Codec Suite (lossless - pc / mac)
Avid Codecs 2.3.7 - DNxHD (virtually lossless - pc / mac)
Where exactly did you get the media that doesn't work?
I recorded the files on a Panasonic HD SD camera - I'm afraid I can't really tell you more than that its just a school camera I borrowed (I'm an undergrad in an advertising program, I'm not training to be a filmmaker as I clearly suck at it). The odd thing is I used the same camera in two seperate film dates but only one set of footage is being troublesome.
@joe bloe premiere - Thank you, I'll definitely look up a different codec. I just used what we were taught. To be honest I don't really know much about codecs, just the two line explanation I was given and the instruction to use H264.
The subject of CODEC's is a rather large, and convoluted one. It is easy to get tripped up. This article goes into more detail: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/546811?tstart=0 It is very general, sort of like an undergraduate course. One can get into CODEC's at the PhD level, but since you are in advertising, and not film making, you probably do not need to go that deeply. Besides, if you get hung up on a CODEC, you can always drop by here, where the "CODEC PhD's" can step up with the exact and specific answers.

Huh? Is the camera HiDef or Standard Def? - The exact model would help
Or, show everyone the details about the original files that don't work
A screen shot works well to SHOW people what you are doing http://forums.adobe.com/thread/592070?tstart=30
You've mentioned two of the three 'fixes' from the link. Have you tried the third?
I downloaded the first codec to try but I don't think I'm doing this correctly. I've managed to more or less cut my footage together but it plays choppy and on export it cuts in odd places, freezes, shows a flash of a red screen and plays the audio track back out of synch. I've tried a number of different exports and the troublesome parts are always in different areas despite being the exact same sequence.
