Did you use the Get Media, From DVD (Camcorder or PC DVD Drive) and try to get the media from your DVD drive?
Sorry, no. I'm using the media downloader.
Further to this, I've noticed the error relates to a specific file. Generally 60kb in size, it's *_ts.vob file causing the problem. If I click OK when the error happens (which is every time I import from the DVD disks) the video files are correctly imported and play properly, even if I delete that file.
Problem seems to be solved, but I wonder what these files are?
Using non-DV files (such as VOBs) puts extra stress on the program and your system because the program has to convert the files on the fly and, ultimately, re-render every frame as DV-AVIs. The longer the VOB or MPEG, then, the more likely your system is going to choke on it.
That's why I always recommend converting any non-DV file to a DV-AVI before you bring it into Premiere Elements. You can do that with MPEG Streamclip, per the FAQs at the top of this forum.
I have just received the same message,'This type of file is not supported, or the required codec is not installed' when I tried to add new .AVI files to an existing project. HOWEVER, these same files had no problem loading when I began a new project.
Also, I received the same message in PE7 when I opened an old project and the program asked me "where is MVI3035.AVI?" when I found the file (which was perfectly fine in PE4) I got the same message.
What is the codec of the file?
