I’m thinking there’s something wrong with your mac.
zap your pram, repair disk permissions using your startup disc.
then run a test on your ram.
when done that (search apple forms if unsure how) you may want to check out “Onyx” free from Vesrion Tracker.
now you got a clean bill of health on your mac, time to tune up FCE.
check your settings to make sure you aren’t using your internal drive as a scratchdisc for your media…
you may try tweeking your set up to have the audio scratch disk on the 800 firewire disk and your video scratchdisc on the other external drive for example.
