    Adobe Premier Elements 8 - Generic failure.  This type of file is not...


      Hi all,


      So the problem is this. When trying to add media to a project (two .avi files from a dv camera). When pushing add media, then it asks where is the file.

      When you search for the file(s) then it says "Generic failure. This type of file is not supported or the codec required is not installed."


      This just appeared, yeasterday everything was fine. I tryied to download codec packs etc and tryied to convert the files to .wmv .mov and so on but nothing helped.


      Help needed please.
