"Hard drive to slow"

Hi folks,
I was bounceing tracks from ableton to Logic the other day; I had been making the track and now I wanted to take the raw audio tracks to Logic to do the final mix.

It's twenty tracks and after putting som plugins on maybe five-six of them Logic complains that the hard drive is too slow and stops during playback.

The computer is a macbook pro I7 with 4 gB of RAM (bought it new about seven months ago). Shouldn't twenty tracks be within the limits of this machine? I was having the audio files on an external disk (firewire), When I moved them to the internal disk Logic would play the tracks but the HD meter was still on red.

He he :-) Damn it, how do I correct that ...

I think my hard drive is FW800/7200, but I will check. It's not the latest one but not that old either. Buying a new one anyway soon, but I'm a little worried it won't do the trick.

Cheers
