Always good practice to do incremental saves when working on a model.

Do they crash Layout as well as Modeler? Are they from another platform or version of LW? What system are you using?

It could be textures causing the crash, try removing them from the directory and let the models load without them. If that works then try re-loading all the i/o plug-ins, or change the format of the images.

It happens from time to time. Re-load the input / output plug-ins. If that doesn't work, throw away the pref files right before trying it again. If that still doesn't work, find different copies of the plug-ins to load, or switch to .psd or .png
