Inside your picture folder create new folders. Divide your pictures and move into these newfolders, Now while importing through fcp it wont list ur all "thousand files". Go to each new folder and import one by one folders

Thanks for your response Rijeesh,
I was a little unclear about my problem. The pictures were just a example of all the files loading. my problem starts before I even pick what to import. It starts when I select a drive. At that point it appears to start loading everything on that drive. Once I let it run and it numbered almost 20000 files it had loaded.

There is probably something on the root level of the drive that has a name like Private or Video or DCIM that makes the application think it's a camera dsrive and wants to use the camera import function.

Thanks for your info. One of the places where it consistantly crashes is when I open the desktop. The desktop has a variety of files on it from different cameras. EG for both my sony and panasonic (hmc 150) camcorders I have folders I have created with the original files from the cameras on them. I also have the previous version of fcp and the trial version of fcpx on the desktop. the name panasonic gives the folder for it's files is "Private". thanks again

Put those Private folder or containers into a folder called Project Archives or something like that. Inside that folder make folders for each archive. I use a three letter code for the client and the date the card was shot. When you import, open the folder with the date you want. Only those files will appear.
