    Trouble importing analog 8mm video with Premiere Elements 9.

    greg111175 Level 1

      I have some old analog 8mm tapes that i'm using a sony camcorder to import through firewire. When I try to import the entire tape (2hrs) It doesn't automatically add the tape to the organizer or timeline. But it does create the .mov file and I can open and play it in quicktime. Problem is when I try to import it into adobe premiere elements 9. It gives me an error: Too many audio channels in file. When I take shorter clips less than 5min. The clips automatically get imported correctly and no error is given. When I compare the video files both have the same audio info, but the longer video will not import. I'm really confused. any ideas?
