    Playback very Slow

    filmschooljefe08!

      While editing my video, playback in both the source window and the program window is slow and jolted.  The videos will only play for about 2 seconds before it stops.  Now I am storing all of my files on my external hard drive, could this be the reason it is slow?  What are my options? The project is very large and I do not want to keep it on my computer hard drive.  Is there a preference I am missing or is my hard drive just too slow?  It is a new Western Digital my Passport 1 TB. 

       

      Have you guys editing from Hard Drives before and found the same thing happens?  What did you do to solve this?

       

      Thanks!
