    Premiere Pro CS3 crash with many video files

    es_screen
      Hi
      I got back from my Ski vacation with many short (few minutes) videos which I took on Canon P&S camera, about 50 files.
      I imported the 50 files to Premiere and tried to work on a movie, but everything works slow and every few commads the premiere crashes.
      I notice that for each new file I add to the project 20K of rams are used - 1G for 50 files. I also get message of low resources from premere which recommend to save my works.
      The video are standard video (not HD) 30fps, and the project is also standard.
      Why is this happening?
      Does the premiere have a limitation for number for files to be imported?
      Does it have problem with the video format?
      How can I overcome this and get a stable editing environment?

      Thanks
