It sounds like something is corrupt with your Organizer. I though that there was a FAQ entry on rebuilding Organizer, but I could not find it. Maybe it was in an earlier thread.
Sorry, but I do not have an answer for you. Maybe someone else can either tell you the steps (if I am correct), or can point you to an article to help.
PS - in the meantime, if it is not a corrupt Organizer, maybe the tips in this ARTICLE will give you some help get your computer set up for an editing session.
Thank you. That is the exact entry that I was looking for. I guess the eyes are going, or maybe the "wine tasting" had begun, but I could not find it. DUH!
Greatly appreciated, and sorry for my blindness. At least the memory told me that it should be there, so all is not lost on this old guy.
