Default Import audio… Beachball

Hello, this only happens on occasion. But it is very frustrating.
Whenever I create a new session and go to import audio as soon as I select the first file I get a beach ball. The only way out is to kill ProTools and start over. Sometimes it requires a reboot. Sometimes it requires deleting the session and building a new one. Once it happens the first time it continues to happen until some combination of rebooting and restarting ProTools which I have not figured out. Any ideas?
Since it does not happen every time I cannot tell you what is different from one session to the next. I pretty much use the same workflow every time. Create session, file import audio, select file, Beachball.
Both the session and the external files are on an external hard drive.
