Update: the problem seems to be that the file was not in the "Project" section of the "Organize" tab. I have since added it to the project using the "Get Media" options, but the scenes are not showing up in the Project menu. In the Organize/Media Menu, I can see the separate clips (they were separated by content), but I cannot trim them as stated above. I open the one massive clip in the "Project" section with the Clip Monitor where the "Set in" and "Set out" buttons work, but there are no separated scenes. My previous video files all have multiple entries in a folder underneath the full clip that contains the scenes separated by content by the analyzer in this same section. Since the previous post, I have been able to run the auto-analyzer on the video I imported, which now correctly displays the separated scenes, but only in the "Media" section of the "Organize" tab. I don't know if this makes sense to anyone else, but I would really appreciate some suggestions.
Were all of these HDV videos captured by Premiere Elements' Get Media/From HDV Camcorder tool over a FireWire connection?
Were all of these videos captured on your Windows 7 computer, or were some captured on another computer or operating system?
Have you ensured that you have the latest version of Quicktime from Apple?
When did you last do a Disk Cleanup and Defragmentation of your drive(s)?

A: All captured on the same Windows 7 computer

A: Yes... downloaded it less than a week ago, after I was experiencing problems

A: Defrag - 31 Oct with 0% defrag detected. Disk cleanup just accomplished. I have about 384 GB of free space. Seems to be a Premiere Elements issue to me. Just need to figure out how to make it split scenes in Project that are recognized in the Organizer.
Latest try: after the cleanup and because I was not sure I had done this since updating Quicktime, I deleted the video from my Organizer and the Project and went back to the Get Media option and added the file, then confirmed it shows up under the Project area. I am currently re-running the analyzer and keeping my fingers crossed. I'll post again if anything changes.
Thanks for your reply, Steve. First time posting in the forums and I was afraid I would just get ignored.

UPDATE: Problem fixed. Once I deleted the video clip from the organizer and the project and then re-imported the video file and ran auto-analyzer, everything worked correctly.
Unfortunately, I am not sure exactly what fixed it and I don't understand why running auto-analyzer did not fix it before, but I think it had something to do with the file being in some sort of weird limbo state within premiere elements.
