Raw DV works here, but then again, I'm on the retail version. I doubt this is one of the trial limitations, so there might be something else going on. Do you have QuickTime Player installed?
Do you have a short test clip you could upload somewhere, just in case there is something weird with the files?
I think that Colin is on the right track regarding QuickTime. We rely on QuickTime for raw DV streams.
Yes, I installed the quicktime and works okay! THANKS! But why the software don't know if a driver needed?? Please fix it, because users are going to mad...

Huh? QuickTime isn't a driver; it's a media framework. Adobe doesn't make it--Apple does. Since it's not specifically required for all/most functionality within Premiere, if you want it, you have to install it yourself.
I realize the Help documents don't specifically say that you need QuickTime installed for .DV, but it does say:
- DV (raw DV stream, a QuickTime format)
Later on, for .MOV, it says:
- MOV (QuickTime Movie; in Windows, requires QuickTime player)
So one could extrapolate that QuickTime Player is necessary for .DV. I agree it should state this explicitly, so why not leave a comment in the documentation pages (Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 * File formats supported for import) to include this? In other words, there is nothing to fix.

from the Premiere Pro system requirements page:
"QuickTime 7.6.2 software required for QuickTime features"
Only I think an INTELLIGENT software says "can't import please install quicktime" (the Vegas said), doesnt say "unsupported" if it's supported... That doest good if the solution dug to manuals. Thanks
