After importing clips from by DV camcorder when I play them back in preview or work with them on the timeline they often will hang up and pause somewhere in the middle of the clip and I have to start with play again to continue. Makes editing a terrible process. Do I have a setting in correct in PRE 10? Sometimes the actual importing process is hung up in the same manner with an error that there was an "unknown recorder problem" and all of that clip is then lost. Help!
