USB Card Reader Crash

I have been using my Sony USB S&S card reader and having some computer lock up problems.

I am running a Mac Pro dual quad core 3.0 machine with 16 GB ram onto a Dulce 4TB RAID 3 using FCP 6.0.2.

When I use the XDCAM Transfer software I do some sub clips but mostly full clips and import one at a time. Most of the time it is fine but some times and I don't know why it locks up. Like just now 68% of the way through a 25sec clip it stopped. At times I have waited 15 min to see what it would do. This time I did an Opton Force Quit. It does not quit the program. The same with FCP it does not quit the program. At that point I try a restart of the computer. The screen stays gray on both monitors and the FCP monitor keeps the light gray bar up top. I am forced each time to hold the start button on the computer and do a hard reboot.

I just trashed my preferences yesterday so that is not it. Also Jason at Zotz who built the machine has no idea why it is happening.

Any educated thoughts?

I think I found the problem Quicktime 7.4.

Can you elaborate? Should we go back to 7.3? Or is it 7.4 that's helping, not hindering?
