If I work too much on the time line in Vegas, a loading icon will appear and eventually the program will say it's not responding. I'm using AVIs and MTS files and have about 40 clips, mostly about 15 minutes long. I believe the problem occurs more with MTS files but still occurs with the AVIs too. Only about two or three of the clips in my project aren't raw files.
I've tried to reduce the RAM on preview in preferences > video from 350MB to 200MB but that's not made any discernable difference.
The error details are:

My specs for my PC are:
Vista Home Premium SP2 32-bit
Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q8300 @ 2.50GHz
About 400GB out of 500GB free on my internal hard drives.
About 1TB out of 2TB free on my external hard drive (where the project file and all clips are stored).
nVidia GeForce GT 120
Any help would be greatly appreciated as my Vegas struggles to last 5 minutes without having to close at the moment.
