Please see the previous document, 10270, for more information on crashes and
RAM amounts.

Another reason for frequent crashes is an incomplete or corrupted software
installation.  It is advisable to de-install your MediaPress X software and run
Apple's Fix Disk Permissions, which is located in Apple's Disk Utility.  This
procedure fixes a wide range of hard disk configuration corruptions.

Once you fix the disk permissions, Reboot your Mac.  Then re-install the
MediaPress X software and try the software again. 

Also, make sure you test encoding without the Preview While Encoding option
selected.  This option can cause some weird random crashes due to the instability
of the Apple preview function, which MediaPress X uses for preview.
