Not supported. That camera is not suited for delivering video to edit. Just for watching. If you want to edit, get a DV camera.
I now, i have a Pd 170 that use for making video.
The strange thing is that i have talked to people that have imported .avi files without any problem in cs3
That is like saying some people have told you they have driven a car. It does not tell you what kind of car, and Adobe does not like any car, it only likes BMW or DV type2. That does not mean Adobe can not drive another car, just that it may work, but if the car is sufficiently different from BMW, it may not.
But the "car" was the same file from my Canon G7, what about that?
What conversion did he apply and how did he set up the driver seat, mirrors and steering wheel, in short the project settings? You may need to copy his approach. Likely the Canon uses MJPEG at a different frame rate with square pixels, that need to be converted to DV type2, the audio may be encoded with a different codec. Try Gspot to figure out what codecs were used, then look for converters that can do the job for you.
Open your G7 footage in QT-Pro and export as something lossless, and at 25fps (assuming PAL). Now import the converted footage into PPro.
PS! You don't need a driving license for cars in order to do the above mentioned conversion.
