Hi All
Mac G5 Tower 2.2gighz processor - 6Gig Ram - OSX 10.4.11 - FCP6.0.2

Getting frequent FCP freezes, such as on SAVE-AS of open files, etc - sorry, haven't been able to pick out a pattern of issues that might be causing it within FCP. Force Quit then run FCP Rescue 6 to replace PREFS in FCP does NOT seem to be helping. Previous (but still doing it) to ongoing FCP issues, often CPU will freeze on attempted shut downs (menus disappear but background image remains). -forced to shut down by holding in START button on tower. Getting more frequent-

Only thing I have added was 4 1-gig sticks of RAM a couple of months back.
have run Dick Utility for Permission Repairs too...

Is there a piece of Diagnostic/Repair software that might source and repair this?? have NO 3rd party stuff at the moment...
many thanks

OK - stu here again
Just shut down computer via START button (would not shut down...)
Rebooted - tried to start FCP - would not open after 3 min (!!). CPU would not Force Quit, so I was "locked out"
had to use START button to shut down...

HELP!
;(

Start with repairing disk permissions. If the issues continues trash the preference files.

There are no "technical solutions" to your "artistic problems".
Don't let technology get in the way of your creativity!

thanks Zane -
did both before posting-
have been using a FCP EDL template I created, all this time....
deleted this and directly opened FCP program , created a new EDL and so far, so good - FCP seems more stable,BUT OS still froze when I tried to shut down cpu...

Get DiskWarrior to repair your startup drive's directory and for any media drives you have connected. No Mac owner running an edit suite should be without this program.

Use a utility program like Cocktail to perform system maintenance for peak efficiency and reliability. The program will clean bloated log and cache files which contribute to general system slowdowns.

How often you run these programs will depend on how much you use your system.

Hi Stu,

Any chance you accidentally have some media on you system drive? Worth a look...
