The most useful thread on this topic was locked before the problem was resolved, but I don't know why. Unfortunately I am a novice with Adobe Premiere, but PP is the tool I have to use in my project.
I have the Creative Cloud version of Adobe PP CS6. I am using a Sony HDR-XR260 camera. And like countless others I get no audio with my video clips when loaded into CS6.
I read all the discussions. I even tried the small clip of MTS that someone offered as a test. I could play that in PP CS6 with audio no problem.
But clips from my own camera have no audio. Doesn't matter how I load the clip (I have tried them all). The clips definitely have audio, becuse they work perfectly on WMP and other apps.
I tried renaming to M2TS... and everything else suggested. Was wondering if anyone has a FIX for this. I am desparate.
Just to make sure that it's not something very simple, lets' address two questions right off:
Did you copy the full folder structure of your card to you HDD?
Did you allow the Indexing and Conforming process to complete 100%
Thanks for replying Bill.
There is no folder structure when files are saved on the 160GB HDD in the Sony HDR-XR260V. Weird, but true. Just folder names for the date the video was shot. And then a single MTS file representing the video clip.
As for indexing and conforming to 100%... I am not really familiar with those two so not sure if I have or not. How can I tell?
Well, you say "no folder structure" and then you say "folder names for the date" so it would seem you have a contradiction... is that "single MTS file representing the video clip" located inside the "folder names for the date"?
What happens if you copy that "folder names for the date" from camera to hard drive, and then import into PPro from there?
As far as indexing and conforming, clear you cache and then open your project again... and look at the lower right corner where there is a status display
If you do not let the indexing and conforming process complete before trying to do anything, you will have problems
Hmm... there is a known bug with CS6 and spanned clips, so it MAY be that you should send a report to Adobe so the product engineer(s) may check to see if the bug investigation needs to be expanded

John... from all the complaints I read on other threads... I guessed that this was a known bug of some kind. The thread discussing it was locked June 14... was hoping in the intervening month either a fix from Adobe or a workaround from the community might have been announced.
Unbelievably... somehow in all my clicking... I got an MTS clip to actually play the audio. A big relief. But the waveform does not appear in the audio track. The audio track is empty, even though the audio is playing. And I tried a second MTS clip and it was back to no sound. Grrrr.... very frustrating!
