CS6 on Mac OS 10.8.3
I've seen a few questions posted with the same error message but none that I have found really had the same problem as I do. I can't get Premiere to import any media. Two of my files came up offline. I went to link the media and it gave me the error message I described in the title. I then tried to import the file seperately rather than linking the media and still had the same problem. My next tesst was to just import a random video file to see if I could import anything at all and I still came up with the same issue.
Edit: I just imported an audio clip successfully. Not sure if that narrows anything down or not.
Edit 2: Now I can import video, just not the ones that come up offline. The offline clips were working fine the last time I worked on this project and they play back fine in quicktime.
Any chance files are on an external drive?
Also try to manually delete all files in both Media Cache and Media Cache Files folders (have no idea where they are located on a Mac, check Preferences -> Media) and let PrPro rebuild them.
>They're both quicktime .mov files rendered lossless from After Effects. I'm not sure what other details to put.

Report back with the codec details of your file, use the programs below... A screen shot works well to SHOW people what you are doing
