I recently downloaded HD home video's to my computer and when I open Pre elements 9.0 it gives me the message saying new files have been downloaded since last launch of elements organizer. Elements will now import these files into a catalog. it starts and listed the mov file but is stuck and will not respond.
What is the format of these HD home video's that you are trying to import into Elements Organizer 9?
Try importing one of them into a Premiere Elements 9.0/9.0.1 new project and determining if a copy of the video gets automatically placed in Elements Organizer 9.
