I’m having issues with dropped frames when editing in FCP.  I can turn the dropped frame warning off, but I still hear constant audio pops from when a frame is dropped, and this makes it very difficult to work.  Having other applications open definitely makes it worse, but often the problem will occur when I have nothing open.  Restarting my machine will improve the situation, but only for an hour or so.  Any ideas what the problem might be?
