    Premiere Pro CS5 playback stops with Canon DSLR footage

    gregmccarthy Level 1

      I am using Canon DSLR footage (5D and 1D). When I import the footage for the first time everything works OK. If I save, close and reopen the project without doing anyother activity on my PC everything continues to work OK.


      My problem is that after I close the project and start doing other activity on the PC e.g. using Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Flash etc and not necessarily all of them, and then reopen Premiere Pro I then start to get a problem with playback stopping on the timeline after about 5-10 seconds.


      What I have found is that if I import a fresh Canon DSLR file from the camera then everything starts working fine again until I start using other programs.


      There must be something on my PC that is causing a conflict but I can't work out what it is.


      Are there any known issues that might help me solve this problem.


      My PC is running Windows 7 Pro, 64 bit. I have two x 2.66Ghz quad core processors (NOT hyperthreading), 12 GB RAM, Nvidia FX 4800 graphics card.


      Any help would be appreciated.
