Super slow rendering

Hi all,

This has probably been answered / asked before but I couldn’t see a thread anywhere.

I’m working on a project in Premiere Pro CS6 yet each time I do an effect and try to render it, it takes so long…even for short clips of about 5 seconds long, it takes over 40 minutes to render it.

All the original clips are on an external hard drive, and the project is also saved on the external hard drive, so just wondering if this would affect rendering times at all?

Otherwise is there anything else that I could try?

Thanks
