    video imported from camera but files labelled as mp3

    Luceoftranmere

      Using Premiere Elements 9 I have uploaded video from camera but the files created are designated as "mp3" and are not recognised by Premiere elements.

      The smaller files will play using Windows Media Player but the largest files will not play.

      Can I have these files converted/relabelled as video files.

      Am unsure how this occurred but due to a laptop failure I had to import the files using PE 9 on a Windows XP computer and now have the files on a new Windows 7 laptop.

          Details needed... starting with brand/model camera, and the codec from the camera

           

          Exactly what is INSIDE the video you are editing?

          Report back with the codec details of your file, use the programs below... A screen shot works well to SHOW people what you are doing

            What are you expecting to have - video with link audio or just an audio file? Any iTunes music involved here?

             

             

            Where is your Premiere Elements 9 at this time, on Windows 7 64 bit or some place else? Are you running the 9.0.1 version? If not, please do so either

            a. from the project's Help Menu/Update or from an online download

            Adobe - Premiere Elements : For Windows : Premiere Elements 9.0.1 update

             

            You say that, in Premiere Elements 9 on Windows 7 64 bit, your import is a file with a .mp3 file extension. Is that correct? What is the file extension before the import?  When you drag that file to the Timeline, do you see content in only Audio 1 or rather in both Video 1 and Audio 1?

             

            With the .mp3 at the Windows 7 hard drive save location, if you play it in Windows Media Player or any other computer player, do you see video and hear audio for that file even before the file ever sees your Premiere Elements 9 on Windows 7 64 bit project?

             

            You wrote

            The smaller files will play using Windows Media Player but the largest files will not play.

            Please define this smaller file....what is its duration and please confirm what the file extension is - mp3 or something else? Audio or Video or Both?.

            Also please define this largest file...what duration and please confirm what the file extension is - mp3 or something else? Audio or Video or Both?

             

            Lots to sort out but let us start here and then decide what direction to take after that.....like into Premiere Elements 9 on Windows XP, laptop failure, and the integrity of any projects and media associated with Premiere Elements in the Windows XP situation.

             

            Thank you.
