FCE crashes too often

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation
working with FCE HD 3, getting the hang of it pretty good. but it keeps crashing. any ideas on ways to cut down on that?
i don't run anything processor intensive (e.g. iTunes) at the same time. restarting doesn't necessarily improve things.
PowerBook G4 Mac OS X (10.3.9) 1GB RAM, 30GB HD (17GB free), QT 7.1.3

The Best Answer

I find FCE incredibly stable. You might try reinstalling the application and/or the OS. Are you using lots of very large format images? I've seen that hang up the application, but rarely hard crash it. There may be hardware issue as well, with a drive or more likely with RAM.
