Elements 10 is not picking up my camcorder, however the computer shows it connected.

    What model of camcorder is it?


    Is it tape-based, hard drive-based or does it record video on a memory card?


    How is your camcorder connected to your computer?


    And how are you trying to connect to it?

    With flash memory, and USB connections, you will want to Copy your flash memory card's full folder structure to your internal HDD, and then use Get Media to Import (not Capture) the files into a Project. Capture is only for a tape-based camera, connected via FireWire/IEEE-1394a/iLink cable.


    Good luck,

    And don't forget to set up your Premiere Elements project with the proper settings for that type of video! Otherwise, you'll have problems later.
