    "Media Offline".. ok fixed the video, but no sound!

    Level 1
      Hi,
      I've been having the Media Offline problem and was able to fix it before by moving the tracks around or copying everything in my project and pasting it inside a new project. This time, though, though the video tracks seem fixed, the audio tracks aren't.

      Any ideas on how to fix this?
      I'm using version 3.0.0 of Adobe Premiere Pro CS3.. I've heard some people complain that updating premiere can cause more problems.
      Thanks

            Well I played around with it before reading your post. Here's how I fixed it... for now:
            I clicked on each video and audio file in the library and selected "MAke Offline".. then I selected each one individually and clicked "Link Media" , then browsed to the file on my computer and selected it.

            This seemed to work... now I just won't close premiere until I am finished with this project.

              Save your project, often... and use a unique name for each save (and keep a list of names!)

              Project files are not that large, and as long as you are 100% sure there are no problems, you may go back and delete earlier ones

              Just do keep a few (at least a half dozen) projects on hand, so you can go back in case of problems

              You should also, while everything is working, make a complete backup image of your boot drive to an external USB hard drive
