What type of camcorder is your video coming from?
Is your project set up for that video format?
Also, have you resized all of your photos to no larger than 1000x750 pixels, per the FAQs to the right of htis forum?
Hi, Thanks for you reply.
The photos are between 1 to 3 MB each if thats any help, My Sony Handycam was set to 16:9 format but I can't select this in Project preferences which seems fixed at 4:3. The point is that I have used photos of this size in a project containing both photos and video previously without problems. I have not tried to splice video footage into an imported slide show before.
I will investigate further later.
You select the project preset right at the beginning in the new project dialog. You cannot subsequently change that setting. Create a new project with the appropriate widescreen setting.

And the size of the photo file does not tell us anything about the relative size of the photos themselves.
Open the photos in a program like Photoshop Elements and check the Image Size. It should not exceed 1000x750 pixels in size.
THE CHIEF CAUSE OF PROGRAM LOCK-UPS AND CRASHES IS THE USE OF OVERSIZED PHOTOS IN A PROJJECT.
The size in MB's is not that important. What counts is the pixel x pixel dimensions. These should be close to the Frame Size of the Project. Also, DPI and PPI are meaningless in Video, and are only used for printing.
