ArcMap (v10) freezing when exporting data driven page(s)

Hi Everyone,

The new data driven pages function is pretty sweet, even more so than the old Map Book extension. The only big issue I have it is when I try to export maps using the Page tab in the Export Map window. This issue only comes with mxd�??s that are using the data driven page function. For some reason exporting a map will cause the ArcMap application to freeze, forcing me to shut it down via task manager.
Sometimes I can export a whole map series but other times I can only do some of the pages in the series and only if I do them a single page at a time. There doesn�??t seem to be any rhyme or reason to why this happens. Everything else about the data driven page tool seems to run just fine. I�??m at a total lost as to why this is happening so any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
