Not all. Only ALL relevant details are missing....
Well I dont really know what else to say.
I have 2046mb of RAM, but I dont think that could be it.
Erm, Graphics card is fine, I doubt it's my computer as I've never had a problem with this before.
Is there anyway of disabling this Peak file Generating process?

If I read your specs correctly, I'd guess that the problem centers on the remaining HDD space. Conformed Audio can take up quite a bit of realestate. I'd also guess that your HDD's free space is not contiguous. When was the last time that you did a complete defrag of the HDD?
I'd look into adding another/several physical HDD's to do much video editing.
Now, if I missed something - never mind.
Yea that would make sense, I only formatted my PC a few months ago, so i have yet to Defrag my HDD (how often to you recommend a full defrag?)
I'll delete a few things now and defrag it tonight.
Thanks for the advice Bill, I'll tell you if it works.
First off, if you are running CS3 you should have at least 2 drives, one for scratch. 3 is really what you should have.
Urm, I'd be upgrading that drive to a terabyte very soon, or at least 2 drives @ 500 gigs each. A 186 gb hard drive is something you would be using with Windows Movie Maker more, not too much with PP.
Adding a scratch disc is going to improve your quality of life by 100x.
So what exactly is a Scratch Drive?

Ah, it's crazy, I've been using Premiere back in the earlier days of Premiere 7.0 and I'm still learning stuff.
Unfortunatley, although I've increased my free space up to 75 gigs, I'm still having the same problem.
Any other ideas?

Convert to type 2.
With 2TB of internal HDD space, I use Diskeeper to defrag nightly, when editing. Last thing I do, before I shut the system down. I've had great success with that program, but there are many others, and some get very high marks around this forum.
I missed the "DV Type 1," sorry. Agree with Harm on that one.
Would that mean I would have to reimport my footage as type 2? Or can I get software which can convert it for me?
Google is your friend.
For someone who is so keen on getting all the 'relevant details', you're not so hot on giving them out...
Canopus DV File Converter is one, but difficult to find anymore. For others use Google. I gave you the cause of your problems after you gave some very relevant details. Now do some searching to remedy your source into a format that PP likes.
I'm trying the Canopus DV file Converter now.
And I did actually use google to initially help solve this problem, and that's what lead me here.
Thanks again, this looks like it should solve things
