Recently I have been experiencing program crashes in Premiere Pro CS5. Everything works fine, until I try to import some media. It often imports fine, however when it comes to conforming, he whole program freezes and Windows Error Report comes up. This happens everytime. I thought that it could possibly be a problem with my computers hardware (as I had been running Premiere Pro on the bare minimum requirements). So I upgraded my Processor from a Dual Core 2.0Ghz to a Quad Core 2.5Ghz. I also doubled the RAM from 2GB to 4GB. Yet the same error still occurs. Has anybody else been experiencing the same problem, and are there any steps I can take to fix it?
Welcome to the forum.
What are the full specs. of your Source Files, and what is the Sequence Preset?
Also, please tell us about your system's I/O, i.e. the HDD's, and especially things like defragmented free space. The more details, the better.
Last, are you running Win7-64 with but 4GB of RAM? That is just about enough to run Win7-64, and leave little, if any, for PrPro.
