pro tools 8 crash...help

after working on a project for 2 days pro tools decided that it could not open the project file again. it opens for 5 seconds then quits.

my setup is a 3 month old imac running snow leopard, a digi 002 and protools 8.

any tips on opening the project. the backups dont work either. it opens on my old g5 protools 7.4 hd system but i dont have the same plugins on that setup.

any suggestions?

Create a new session and import the old tracks into the new session. If it's still corrupt, try it again but do it one track at a time to isolate the problem track.

There are also a number of troubleshooting steps you can find at the Avid site. Maybe trashing databases?

I meant preferences, not databases.

Sometimes just a reinstall works.

Worth a shot. Any other sessions giving you any problems?
