When I select a clip in the media browser and import it to the source window, the media browser jumps back up to the first clip in the file list. To explain further, let's say I have 200 clips in a folder and I want to look at clip 190 and 191. If I import clip 190 to the source window, the media browser list and or thumbnail will jump back up to clip one in the folder requiring me to scroll all the way down the list back to clip 191. This is very time consuming.
Is there a way to make the media browser stay where it is in the folder and not return to clip one?
As Ann sez, be sure you have updated to CS6.0.5.

I seem to recall this as being an issue, but I just tested in 6.0.5 (both in
list view and icon view with different scaling) and I am not seeing the
list jump back to clip one after importing a clip from the end of the list.
I am running version 6.0.5
My media is XDCAM-EX. No matter how I import it to the Source window the Media Browser window always goes back to "reading" and then starts at the first clip.
I am running Windows 7 64 bit, i7 processor, 24GB of Ram, NVIDIA Quadro 5000
The camera is a JVC HM-GY100U. I moved the BPav folder from each SD card (there were three of them) into folders on my hard drive named Africa1, Africa2, Africa3. So in the media Browser folder list I click on Africa1 and have it "View As" XDCAM-EX in the file window.
As I said every time I import a clip it reads the files again and starts at the first one.
I am going to look at older projects where I have only one BPav folder and see if it does the same thing. I seem to recall that I have always had this problem but on smaller projects with fewer clips it was not as irritating.
Your method sounds correct.
Let us know how your testing goes.
If it's a bug in CS6, Adobe will fix it.

This is a known bug that was fixed for 6.0.3, and then returned for both 6.0.4 and 6.0.5.
Is there a specific media type that is affected?
I have tested again with some Sony EX3 BPAV/CLPR files,
and I don't see any jumping of the list.
I am on 6.0.5 and the clips still jump to the top. I am using AVCCAM footage from a Panasonic AF100...MTS files. Very frustrating and time consuming to wait and/or have to jump back and forth, esp on big projects with hundreds of clips.
One out of three of the folders that I re-imported worked correctly----for a while. Only this one folder stopped jumping back to the top. I thought that I was on to something by the way that I imported the files but after a week or so of flawless behavior, of only this one folder, it too resorted to jumping back to the first clip in the media browser. I had not made any changes to the folders, it just quite behaving properly.
This really make editing difficult and VERY time consuming.
ADOBE please help.
Do let Adobe know this got rebroke with the 6.0.5 update.
