Ppro Project is taking forever to load!

Hi guys,
I have a project due tomorrow and I can't get it to load in premiere pro. It's not a big project--about ten minutes long--but it keeps hanging on the last 98% of the progress bar when it's loading the project. I don't hear any of the hard drives going, but a few that I have are pretty quiet and SATA doesn't make the hard drive status light blink. What's going on?! I have a few large capture files--one is about 17 minutes long at max--is that what's wrong? Is it looking for lost files? Somebody help, please! I need to work on my project and get it done by tomorrow!

take a look through here: http://www.adobe.com/support/techdocs/331177.html

Also try starting Premier by holding down the shift key at start, there was one more method of clearing out a directory or a file (can't recall) but it may not apply to 1.5 and may have only been a way to get 6.5 and 6.0 fixed.

How long did you wait? Some projects can take a long time to load (15 minutes or more), and might seem to hang with the progress bar close to the end.

The length of your edit or the duration of source files is not a factor in load time. The number of source files in the project bin is a big factor though, because Premiere needs to locate all of these files one by one. It also needs to interpret the rest of the XML data in the project file. If the project won't load after a long wait, then maybe the project file itself is corrupted. Try opening one of the auto-save files to see it that works. You could also try to create a new project and import the old project into it.

If none of this works, maybe it's a source file on disk that is corrupted. You could try creating a new project and importing all the source files. Can you save/reload that project? If you could pinpoint while file is corrupted, then removing it from its location could allow the project to load, but that's a long-shot.
