    Need help urgently!! - "The selected file cannot be linked because its type (video) does not match t

      Hey guys... I need your help!! I started a project using Premiere Pro 2 and was 80% when I formatted my computer (all my project files were always saved to a external hard drive). Anyways instead of installing Premiere Pro 2, I installed Premiere Pro Cs3. Problem is whenever I try starting up my project it asks me to link every file used. When I do this it says "The selected file cannot be linked because its type (video) does not match the original file's type (audio and video)." I took my external harddrive to friend's house who has Premiere Pro 2 and it says the same thing. Why did this happen? Is there anyway around it... Any help would be greatly appreciated, I put over 20 hours into editing this movie... I don't want it all to go to waste.
