Also, For Windows (not sure about Mac) This is aimed at Premiere Pro, but may help
Work through all of the steps (ideas) listed at http://ppro.wikia.com/wiki/Troubleshooting
If your problem isn't fixed after you follow all of the steps, report back with ALL OF THE DETAILS asked for in the FINALLY section, the questions at the end of the troubleshooting link... most especially the codec used... see Question 1
Everything worked fine with Premiere elements 7 not it is having this issue with Premiere elements 9. don't understand why
sorry for being so dense but these instructions are for Premiere Pro. I have Premiere elements 9 not Pro. Not to mention some of the things that are listed I have no idea what they are. sorry this is a bit overwhelming.

Not to mention some of the things that are listed I have no idea what they are. sorry this is a bit overwhelming. i have no idea what a scratch disk is or audio settings or many of the items that are mentioned to go and look at and check. I wouldn't know if they were right or wrong.
It is very likely that you had a CODEC on either your old system (with the earlier version of PrE), or that it was removed along the way. CODEC's are installed at the system-level in almost all cases. They might be installed with a program, like PrE, but are in the system, and available to most programs that use them. This ARTICLE will give you a bit more background.
What type of camcorder did this video come from, Sarah, and how did you get it into your computer?
My Camcorder is a cannon vixia HD 20. the files are MTS files. I actually called adobe. I spent about an hour on the phone going through a bunch of stuff to figure it out. The resolution is as such:
1. the video was coming from an external drive w a usb connection and with PE 9 it couldn't transfer the HD video. did ok with video files from my old camera which weren't HD. Solution pull files onto the hard drive of the laptop computer I am using away from home. Had no problem doing the file transfer from the external with PE 7 but older version older tech
2, 2nd issue is the computer a laptop. It isn't fast enough for HD and the New PE9 so video plays back choppy but burns ok.
basicly I can do the small stuff I want to do by pulling the files onto the hard drive. thanks sarah
It could well be that your computer isn't powerfully enough -- or you lack the hard drive space -- to work with this type of video.
