"My truck is sluggish when I bring an order home from the store"
What size truck and engine... what weight order... are there hills between store and home?
In other words... venting is fine, but asking for help requires DETAILS about your computer and the files you are using
If you actually want help...
Work through all of the steps (ideas) listed at http://ppro.wikia.com/wiki/Troubleshooting
If your problem isn't fixed after you follow all of the steps, report back with ALL OF THE DETAILS asked for in the FINALLY section, the questions at the end of the troubleshooting link... most especially the codec used... see Question 1

I believe this error message has to do with writing the XMP metadata to the imported files. If so, that error can be safely ignored. I don't expect it has anything to do with any performance issues.
Sorry, not venting (at least on this subject). System is 3.0 dual Quad core, WinVista Ultimate 64bit, NVidia Quadro FX 5600, 8gig RAM, lots of external RAID. Been working with PPro since like 6.0 (over 12 years). Just had a few quirks since upgrading to 64bit and CS5 Master Suite.
Thanks for the reference links, I will check them out. Colin is a bud here. rg
