Currently Being ModeratedJun 23, 2008 11:39 PM (in response to Steve Bull)I don't think this is something related to RAM. I hve a 2.4 GHz MBP with 4GB of RAM and this happens to me everytime I import some folder with thousands of photos.
The only way around I found was importing partially in groups of 300-400 photos until all my files are imported.Mac OS X (10.5.3)
Currently Being ModeratedJul 28, 2008 5:25 AM (in response to Steve Bull)Did you ever have any luck solving this issue? I'm having the same thing happen on an iMac 2.16 GHz with 3GB of ram, importing from OWC drives over firewire 800. I've had freeze issues where drives seem to get "lazy" and spin down, even when they shouldn't. A double-click on the drive in the finder spins it back up and then things continue. But, that didn't work on this new Aperture problem that I just started having when I tried importing large folders.iMac 2.16 GHz, 24", 3GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
Currently Being ModeratedJul 29, 2008 8:37 AM (in response to Steve Bull)Happened to me every time I tried to import raw files from a folder using a 17" MacBook Pro with 2GB memory.
Unfortunately my trial version expired before I could test it on my iMac 24" with 4GB memory.
BTW, apple will only let you try Aperture one trial session per user, not one time per computer. Kind of silly.MacBookPro 17", iMac 24", Mac OS X (10.5.4)
