Sorry- forgot to list operating environment/system:
WIN Vista 64 SP2
Premiere CS4 recently updated to 4.1
Either the camera was set to record 32KHz (maybe the cameraman didn't notice) or the device you are using for capture is set to play out 32 KHz.
Thanks for your reply, Harm....
Well now...having negated all the possibilities you listed, I decided to do a an actual batch capture with clips which I previously logged which reported audio at 32kHz instead of the project setting of 48kHz:
1. two clips were selected from the same device/tape ( both selected from the logging util which erroneously reported audio at 32kHz) for the batch
2. both clips captured "flawlessly"
3. both clips after the batch capture then reported audio as being 48kHz
Btw, I also did a batch capture from the same device/tape in Pr 6.x...and it reported and captured at 48khz...I must say, I must prefer the legacy version of Pr 6 for batch capture which creates a log .pbl file which can then be easily exported as a csv to and .xls etc..IMO, much more useful...and useable..

So it would appear there is some kind of bug in the Pr cs4 batch capture util that is erroneously reporting audio settings?
Should this go to the devel as a possible bug?
My personal approach to capturing is to never use PR. For DV material I use Scenalyzer, for HDV I use HDVSplit.
As to the question whether you should file a bug report, yes, I think that whenever you can replicate the problem with another camera it is worthwhile to report the issue.
