How many and what speed (7200 rpm?) hard drives and where are your project/video files located?
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
Do you have an nVidia card, and do you have hardware acceleration enabled?
Did you do as below to be sure your video and sequence match?

If you have LONG clips, did you do as it says below (which you should do, anyway)

Thank you for the response, John. Haven't had the time to look at the links you provided yet, but I will this evening.
To answer your first question, I'm running a 1TB 7200rpm HDD for my OS and all programs. All my photos/videos are a 2TB drive.
I have an old nVidia 9800GTX+ (weak link). Not sure if I have hardware acceleration enabled or not.
>All my photos/videos are a 2TB drive
Internal or external... 7200rpm or 'green' drive... if external, is it USB2 or USB3 or eSata?
For photos, read...
