I have capured most of my videoes on windows movie maker .
Don't do that. WMM creates the wrong type of files. In the future, use Premiere to capture directly.
For the current project, use DVMP Pro to convert your WMM files from Type 1 to Type 2, which Premiere prefers.
I`ll do that from now on, but it should work anyway? That cant be the reason why its not responding?
I don't know. It's something you did wrong that can be fixed. Try and and see what happens.

Google for "convert AVI type1 to type2". There are a number of links to converters than can correct the WMM format to the format for PR.
Okay! I tried two converter, one says cant convert because its not avi 1 file, the other one converted it and I tried it in CS4. The clip was in about one minute long or something. I put it in the timeline and I got this red line (dont know whats it called, but know it has to be rendered). So I clicked on the rendered butten and it starts to render: Time left : probably one hour or something.. so I cancelled the whole thing..
Okay I thought if this is the problem, then I just can capture my tape again in the right way with CS4. So I tried that to. Ive attached a file where you can see the message I got.
Does anyone else has this problem too?
But I think it is strange that this can be the problem.. I have tried former versons of premiere and it has worked the with the moviemaker capture. And CS4 seems to work perfectley because I can put the clip in the timeline, press space and see the whole clip or all clips on the monitor, I can put on some effects and do a couple of things untill it suddenly just dont respond...
If the CS4 didnt work with my type of avi file, would it work so perfecly a while and out of nothing just not?
hope someone can help me, really want to get this to work!!

I have tried former versons of premiere and it has worked the with the moviemaker capture.
Former versions were indeed more accepting of Type 1 files.
If Premiere can't capture, that is yet another issue that might be related. At the very least, it indicates something may be wrong with your hardware or installation. Get the capture problem solved first.
ok! the capture problem may be a start. I just tried another time on vista but got the same problem there so I turned back on win 7.
I installed cs4 again and there seems to be no problem with installation. I also work alittle in After effects and thats seems to work 100%. ( Im new at this so I havent work very much but those times I have worked there is no problem).
back to the capture problem... That is a bit strange too... cause I start it and this window comes up, but I cant push the play or back and forward buttons.. But when I do push play on the video camera the video comes up and shows in the window on my computer.. So I tried to push the record button witch is one of the few buttons that works and play on my video camera, then it seems to capture but the files that is capturing doesnt work or I got the message record error, recorder capure no frames.
You also mention my hardware, what can that be?

Glad that you've gotten a lot of useful info, especially with regards to file formats/CODEC's.
Now, to address your "Not Responding," this ARTICLE might help you get your computer set up for NLE work.
If that does not help you out, and it should, this ARTICLE might help you find out what is happening, when you have a program hang, crash, or other issue.
Hi Bill Gehrke!
I only have one problem doing the Benchmark testing ant that is when Im going to type in the full path for the preview files. They suddenly disappears.. I`ve tried the test for three times now and this last time I tried to copy the preview files and put the yo another folder that I created. Then I got the message that you can see in the attachment.
And since I cant find them I cant proceed and send you the result... Im not that good in doing computer things but I followed the instructions that where easy to follow even for dummies like me, but if you have a tip on how to proceed from this I can probably send you the result.
Im by the way very thankfull for everyone that is trynig to help me out here!

I cant push the play or back and forward buttons.
That's not normal. The more we dig, the more it looks like something fundamental is wrong with your setup. Fix that, and all else may also get 'fixed'.
After alot of checking and testing I think I finally got the solution! And I have to thank you all for helping me out here! Thank you very much!!!
I found out of my caputre problem, and the problem was that I used a USB cabel from the camera to my computer. I needed a firewire cabel and then the capture problem was resovled.
Then I got back to not responding, and after cheking more of what and when it happend I found out that it works with some of my videoclips and some of them not. So I converted those who not worked to AVI 2 and it seems to work!!
So for now Im happy and I want to thank you again!! I couldnt have done it without you!!
