    try encoding your videos with "photo-jpeg" as a compressor! works much better in modul8.
    Life is a horrible game, but hey, the framerate rocks!

    h264 seem to run fine on core duo machines nowdays, but photoJPG is way faster. And I would rather use 640x480 larger files (photoJPg) than h264 that is even 320x240. Dont you experience awful artifacts.
    Your Lacie drive may not deliver data fast enough too. People use RAID setup to deliver media fast.

    Definitely try recompressing to Photo-Jpeg.

    I use, 640x480 clips Photo Jpeg 80% on MBP 2.5Ghz 2 Gb RAM. and an external firewire 800 HD. (7200 rpm) I really noticed changes in performance with a 7200 RPM HD thow FW800. Even thow is not as fast as a RAID, it works for me.

    I also conected the HD throw esata adapter, but more headeaches than solutions, so I went back to FW800
