Is there a size restriction?
"The maximum frame size that can be imported for still images
and movies is 256 megapixels, with a maximum dimension
of 32,768 pixels in either direction."
...it will only import the first 37 files after that I get an error message
Are you sure files 38-126 are intact?
Are you able to import them individually?
Are all of your images RGB (not CMYK)?
Thank you for your response to my query, but I must give you my apologies. If only I had investigated a bit deeper instead of panicking I should have solved my own problem. While abroad I copied each night my stills to my lap top. When I returned home a couple of days ago I copied them from lap top to memory stick and then memory stick to big computer. For some reason that I can't at present understand all pictures from 37 upwards became corrupt. I have since re-copied from lap top and Premiere Pro happily introduced them without any complaints. Thanks for your help.
