    Premiere CS3 just quits

      I usually use Edius but I thought I would give Premiere a try. The first thing I noticed was I could not import the MPG files I usually work with. I download the files from my camera which are MPEG-2 format but have an MOD extension. I change the extension to MPG and normally load them directly into Edius with no problem. When I try to Import them into Premiere I get an error message that it can't load them because they are an unknown format. So, I figured just for testing purposes I would import an avi file. The file loaded and was sitting there ready to be loaded into the time line. When I highlighted the file Premier just disappeared. No error message or anything just gone without a trace and my desktop showing as though I never had anything running. Now that is strange!

      Has this happened to anyone else and does anyone have any idea why this would happen?
