Did you wait for the audio conforming to finish before trying to edit?
That's what it's strange..... it never conform the audio, I never see the yellow bar.
and in the proyect window the icon is "video only"
The footage is 4 minutes duration.
Try capturing with HDVSplit, a free capture utility that does as well or maybe even better than PR for capturing. After capture, import and wait for the conforming and indexing to finish.
One more tip, If I transcode the file in windows (with for example: canopus Proder),
to another format (AVI DV) it works perfectly....
But I can't transcode every footage that I capture with Premiere......
I just don't understand because in CS3 or CS4 it never happend something like this.....
I' ll try what you suggest and tell you what happens.
What are the Audio settings, in your camera? The more detail, the better.
