    Hi everyone! I have Final Cut Express. Very often does it hang/freeze itself when exporting a video to a movie file, especially lately. I have no other problems with the computer.

    I have a iMac, 2,8 GHz Intel Core Duo with 4 GB memory. Up until today I had 2 GB in memory only. But today I bought 4 GB hoping it would help. But it didn't. My external harddrive is a Seagate.

    I have tried setting the scratch disks etc to the computers harddrive but still it hangs/freezes up.

    I have done a RAM reset too. It didn't help.

    I bought this iMac in February this year. My Final Cut Express is new too. So is the Seagate external harddrive.

    Anyone got any ideas on what it could be? :(

    Sometimes it hangs/freezes when I touch the mouse and the cursor moves a little on the screen. The time bar (%) when exporting stands still for some time. Then I just touch the mouse a little and the wheel of colors starts spinning.

    Some error reports:
