Dear Lydon,
I also had some trouble with stacking Layers in the  Raster package. Try 
to use a 32 bit version of R. Sounds weired but in my case the stacking 
with the Raster package was much faster using the Raster Package on a 32 
bit - R Version. This is what Robert Hijmans once wrote me when I had 
some trouble with the Raster Stacking:
Thanks that is very good to know. raster checks if the data can all be 
processed in memory, and if so, does that (up to a point), for better 
speed. There is a limit set by maxmemory. See


Perhaps setting maxmemory to a lower value



Hope this will help you.
