    duplicate titled dvd's won't load in organizer

    stevem12471303

      I have multiple DVD's to import to Elements Organizer.  They are all titled the same (vts_01_1_vob) though they all have different content.  Organizer says "this file already exists in catalog," though it acutally doesn't.  How can I override this so I can import all of my content?

          Typically I ask what version of Premiere Elements and on what computer operating system is it running?

          The answer would appear to be the same nonetheless.

           

          The Elements Organizer contains only thumbnails to the originals at a computer hard drive location.

           

          You cannot have files with the same name in the same location.

           

          Rather than rename all the VTS_01_1.VOB, before you import any into the Elements Organizer browser area,

          a. store each VTS_01_1.VOB in a different location - one document, one pictures, one videos or more practically...

          b. store each VTS_01_1.VOB in its own folder in the same place, like Videos.

           

          Please give it a try and determine if that works for you.

            Thanks!  I have Elements 12 on Windows.   I'll give your advice a shot.   Much appreciated...
