First convert with CS3 to a CS3 project and then convert to CS5.
I dont think he has CS3
I think CS5 is just saying that the format is earlier than CS3 and it cant read it.
Sorry no ideas here: GLenn
I do not have CS3.
That is what family, friends, colleagues and acquaintances are for.

I have CS3 on my old computer.
If you want to send a zip file with the project I could try and see if i can convert it to something for you.
Dont know if it will work.
Just send it to my Hotmail account.
you have to click my icon to go to my page to see the Hotmail e-mail address.
No, your email address does not show up in your profile. It is listed as private.
your right it does not show.
I logged in on my other computer that I was not logged in and it doesnt show my e-mail address.
It does show on this one.
I send you a Private message with it.
I have the file
what are the project settings ?
I have to re-boot my old computer with CS3
Its late I dont know why I asked for project settings.
In my head you sent me a clip not a project. lol
I was able to bring into CS3 just like Harm said and then saved it as a CS3 Project.
I then loaded it into CS5 and converted it to CS5 just fine.
I e-mailed you all 3 copies.
You should be good to go now.
I can see why you didnt want to start over.
That is allot of work at 01;27;26;13 long.
Allot of cuts.
Let us know if it works out.
Good work, and there will be something extra in your Adobe payroll envelope.
The problem with the PrPro 1.5 to CS5 Mac, is that there was no PrPro 1.5 Mac version. With older Pr versions, say 6.5, there is not a platform limitation. Older (pre Pro) Mac Projects work fine in my PC. With the Pro introduction, PrPro 1.0/Pr 7.0/PrPro 7.0 (rather an anomaly), Mac support was stopped, until CS3. This created a gap, with ONLY PC versions, and no Mac compatibility. As Harm and GLenn pointed out, the only workflow is to take the older PRPROJ file (created on a PC), and Improt/Open - Save (essentially Converting it) in version CS3 on the PC, and that will allow a Mac to use the PRPROJ file.
This is when it pays to have friends on PC's, running PrPRo, so that they can do the Conversion for you. Baring that, then it's great to have folk, like GLenn, on the forum, who will do it for you. It's simple, so long as there is a PC, running CS3, or later, to get those Projects into a format/version, that the Mac can read. Time for some "bi-partisan" cooperation.
Glad that you got it to work, and happy editing.
PS - one little caveat: There are differences in the Effects & Transitions, between the platforms, so a Project that was created in PrPro 1.5 (or 1.0, or 2.0), might have Effects, or Transitions, that do not exist on the Mac. Also, if one had 3rd party Effects or Transitions on the older PC, then those might show as missing, when the Project Opens on the Mac. In most cases, PrPro is very good at pointing out the exact location, and more details, where those appear. One can then just make note of the location, and go there to replace the missing Effect, or Transition, with one that does exist on the Mac. For me, going from Mac to PC, this process has been perfect, but I cannot say that it would be in all cases going from PC to Mac.
Glenn was very nice to convert my first project. I have part II of the same
project which I would love to get converted as well. Any idea how I can get
that done? I have contacted Glenn again and waiting to hear from him.
I have several projects that I have worked with Pro 1.5 in the past, that I
would love to convert to CS5. Any idea where I could get my hands on CS3? I
hate to bother Glenn for all of them. I am also willing to pay to have them
saved in CS3 format.
I would appreciate any assistance you can think of.
I sent part 2 about an hour and half ago. You should have it in CS3 format.
Thank you so much. I will let you know if I have trouble opening it.

I think that GLenn is your "lifeline," though I am sure that there are others. I'd have offered, but do not have CS3 to help you.
As for locating CS3, about the only way to do that is through one of the very few legit "older software" sites. I would be very, very shy with ANYTHING on eBay, as few have ever gotten any legit and usable version of Adobe programs. Guess that it has happened, but all I ever read of are pirated copies. [May be like these fora - one only reads of problems, and seldom does a poster show up with "hey, CSx works perfectly and I love it... !"]
I'd also suggest a nice "sussy" (old Southern term for a present of some sort) for GLenn. He's stepped up to the plate on your behalf. Way to go GLenn. My hat's off to you - good work. Talk about "contributing" to the forum!!!!!
PS - maybe 18 mos. ago, another Mac user was in exactly the same boat, as you. We suggested finding someone, like GLenn, to help out. The OP's response was, "I do not have any friends on PC's." Oh well, maybe that OP should not openly diss one's computer platform...
