I wouldn't completely rule out the possibility of file corruptions or a failing drive. You could have some cache or permission issues just for starters. I recommend grabbing Onyx and run its full suite of maintenance and cache cleaning tools. If that doesn't fix the problem, then look harder at the drive. Here's a post of mine detailing the best ways to do so:
Too much space used in Hard drive

Have you tried importing your photos directly to a folder rather than iPhoto? You can change this using Image Capture, found somewhere in your Applications folder.

EDIT: also… try repairing the iPhoto library.
iPhoto 6 and later: Rebuilding the iPhoto library


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
