tamzynd, what are the specs of your mac? sounds like Premiere is choking on the footage.
Can you play other type of vision (e.g. a plain old AVI file from a DV camera)?
is your footage on the internal drive or on an external disk?
Specs are as follows 2.4 GHz Intel Core duo
Memory 2 GB 1067 MHZ DDRB
It won't play AVI footage either- nothing and the footage is on the internal drive
Any help would be seriously appreciated
Thank you so much
