What version of Premiere Elements are you using and on what computer operating system is it running?
What do your computer resources look like in terms of installed/available RAM and free hard drive space?
How far into the "70 GB" did the AutoAnalzyer get before it quit? What does that "70 GB" represent in terms of number of files, average duration of file, and file size of file?
>files that I recorded through my webcam
What are the details of the files?

Im using Premiere Elements 11 on Windows 8. I have 6 gb of ram, 5.89 are free, and the analyzer only got through a few mb before it quit. When I try to play the video, it only plays for 4.25 seconds. I have another file that stopped 4.25 seconds.

Thanks for the follow up.
I would like clarification on a few things.
Given that you capture your video from the web cam. Did you download the MediaInfo and did you not see Video/ with the codec listed among the other video properties. Same comment for Audio. That is an important point for the troubleshooting.
If the file never gets into Premiere Elements 11, does it play OK on one of your computer players? If so, which one?
In your workflow is the web cam built into your computer or just connected to your computer? Are you capturing your web cam data into Premiere Elements 11 via Add Media/Webcam or WDM? Captured data goes to wherever you have designated in the Scratch Disks. Where do you have the Capture Video and Capture Audio directed and how much free hard drive space is there? See Premiere Elements workspace Edit Menu/Preferences/Scratch Disks.
