final cut pro 7 mouse lagging

I've got a really odd issue that's cropped up the past 2 months with my FCP.

When importing clips into my FCP browser, I have to wait about 10 seconds before FCP will allow the mouse to drag it into a folder for organization. I can click and click and click until my fingers are blue, but the FCP won't let me move it. However, FCP will let the mouse immediately double-click the newly imported clip and send it to to the Viewer window for viewing, trimming, or pasting into the timeline.

At first I suspected the cause as some kind of a conflict coming from a new wireless mouse, purchased at the same time as I recognised this issue. However, I have ditched the wireless mouse and gone back to a corded USB mouse. No change, there is still a 10 second lag, so I don't believe is has anything to do with the mouse.

Has anybody ever heard of this quirk? Is it an FCP setting that has gone wonky? HELP! This has slowed my workflow down to a crawl.

My system:
Mac 10.8.5
3.2 GHz Intel i7
GeForce GT610 2048MB
40GB RAM
FCP 7.0.3
2TB HD

What is the codec of the footage you are bringing in?

First off, the AE specs don't list a CODEC. Animation? ProRes? Uncompressed? QUICKTIME isn't a codec...it's a container.

Second, DVCPRO HD is an old and lousy codec anymore. Unless your footage you shot is that codec, you should not use it. it's not full raster 1920x1080...it's super anamorphic, 1280x1080.
