I have just bought a new Mac (4-core, GeForce GT-125 graphic card, 4 GB RAM and huge place on the Hard disk System 640 and another one Seagate 1.5 Tb) with parallel use of Windows.
I can import in the PE7 the above files (it takes some time anyway) separately or together.
After importing them I see on the main window of PE7, on the left, several other windows opened from behind or the message : importing media. Which desappear when I try to play the project or a file.
Much to my surprise small clips I recorded with a normal foto camera they behave the same way.
When I try to play one of the above files I have no visualization but only sound and not very clear (like somebody would swich -on off- continously).
All the above happens in the scenline.
When I go to the timeline I see on the place of the imported clips a red line and of course the same like before (just sound etc).
Do I have to correct something on the hardware for all that?
If you need more details I could tell you or to send you even a captured screen...
I appreciate as always professional help in this forum.
Thank you very much

You say you are using Windows with Parallels on a Mac?
If so, problems like this are pretty common. Unlike using a dual boot, when you're running Parallels, you're running both systems at once, and that can lead to this kind of bugginess.
Assuming you've got all of the updates for Windows, I'm not sure there is a solution for this.
Thanks for answering Steve
Anyway this "Parallel system" I think I installed it just because I wanted to see quickly how windows "works" generally with all programms".
I have of course the possibility to use "Boot camp system" of the Computer. That's what I was advised from the shop to use.
As I understood you mean I will have better results using whether MAC or Windows (I have professional) from the beginning? Using the programm boot camp from MAC of course.
