What model camera?
If i'm not mistaken, it's OLYMPUS VR-320.
Check the codec with Mediainfo
I think its Mjpeg
In order to be able to edit mjpeg you need to install the codec.
MediaInfo gave me this info on the AVI video i am trying to play on premiere:
"CONTAINER AND GENERAL INFO:

FIRST AUDIO STREAM

Sorry but i'm only a newbie here in video editing.
I am not familiar with this info, hope you could help me on this.
Did you click the Mainconcept link Ann provided?
Did you install the codec from that site so the file will work?
Did you know that CS4 has a different forum?
"no" to all of your questions.
Anyway, i've downgraded my premiere to CS3 and that solves my problem... for now
