What computer operating system is your Premiere Elements 12 running on?
AVI is never enough of a description to answer to this of issue. All .avi are not created equal.
We do need to know the properties of your source media. We may be able to get that information by knowing the brand/model/settings of the camera that recorded the video. Otherwise a video audio properties readout from MediaInfo may be indicated.
For now I am assuming that you are running version 12 on Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 64 bit.
Have you updated from 12 to 12.1 yet? See Help Menu/Update in the opened project.
Is the no audio confined to video/audio from one particular camera which is giving this particular format? Are any
other formats, such as H.264.mov similar affected?
Looking forward to your details including project settings et al.
Thanks for the reply.
Glad that the suggested update, Premiere Elements 12 to 12.1, resolved your issue with sound in the .avi import.
I have not seen reports related to that problem and a 12.1 Update fix, so, when you get the time, could you post the
properties of the .avi file with which you had the problem in the 12 version of the program. That information would be
very helpful to those looking for answers for a similar problem.
Thank you again.
I don't know how to do that. I am a 5-6 school teacher. I have old
cameras of various types. I only know that of the video my kids
recorded with these cameras that the avi files would not play sound and
the mpg files would not play at all in Premiere 12, but they would play
in Premiere 9. I had to upgrade to 12 because 9 kept crashing as I was
trying to render the video or create avi files for work in Premiere.
Sorry I can be of no further help. But you sure did help me!

Thanks for the reply.
We could try to get the video properties from the names and specifications of the cameras that recorded
the video, but you have moved forward.
We will be content to know that updating to the 12.1 version of 12 corrected your audio issue related to an .avi
Consequently, we will be glad that we had opportunity to help and that you are now moving forward with your
