Hello all...I've been searching for answers to this for about 2 days now to no avail, so I figured that I would just ask straight out.
Here's my problem-I start PP, and the project begins to load. However, the last small portion of the load bar never fills in, and the project never loads. I have let it sit and load for upwards of an hour to no avail. The project is less than 10 minutes, most of it is in either the AVI or MP3 formats. All of the AVI files were exported from AFX, if that helps at all.
OS-Windows XP Pro
CPU-AMD Athlon X2 2.6ghz (have a quad core, but its mobo is RMA'ed at the moment.)
HDD-250gb Seagate 5000rpm
Project size is roughly one mb.
Thanks in advance.
Maybe try importing the project into a new one. Sometimes that clears things up so work can continue.
If not, then try changing the name of the media folder before opening the bad project, forcing Premiere to ask where the media files are. Tell Premiere they're off line and see if the project opens then. If it does, that's a sign of a corrupt media file.
