Any ideas to get this video finished?
Make sure you have all of the updates from Windows Updates, including the non-critical ones. (You'll need to go Windows Update and manually download them.) Also ensure you have the latest version of Quicktime. And I'd also recommend you go to either the ATI or nVidia web site and download the latest firmware and driver for yoru video card. Believe it or not, these are the chief causes of these types of crashes.
Also ensure that your hard drive is well-maintained and that you defragment it regularly.
