I'm running premiere cs3 on xp. on friday all systems were working fine.
On Saturday I exported four mpeg2's. This morning I tried to start premiere and the load took 12 minutes. I hit skip files to skip those files which are unecessary and the program went unresponsive.
I'm assuming I may have added the mpegs to the project unintentionally.
Also, last wednesday I added a new external hard drive to allow for greater scratch disc space. It worked fine for several days, so I don't think its the culprit.
I opened an earlier save of the same project saved before the export and everything is working. How could exporting 2gigs of mpeg2's cause this problem.
