May I know the error that you are getting while importing MPEG files?
Are you using licensed version of Adobe Premiere elements?
Sagar, thank you for replying. The error is that the file format is not supported. I am using a licensed version of Premiere Elements and this was an upgrade from Elements 13. Elements 13 displayed the file format without problem.
Rename folder the mpegs are in and try again.
Ann Bens, thank you for the reply. I renamed the folder as you suggested. The mpeg file did not display but I saw an option when I right clicked the file name to replace it. I replaced it with itself and it displayed. To be clear, I also uninstalled Premiere Elements 14 and reinstalled. I don't know if the reinstall or the renaming of the folder or both solved the problem but the software is working as advertised.
