>DV footage captured in Premiere does not work
What ARE those files, and how did you get from camera to computer?

What CODEC is INSIDE that file? http://forums.adobe.com/thread/440037?tstart=0
Report back with the codec details of your file, use the programs below
For PC http://www.headbands.com/gspot/ or http://mediainfo.sourceforge.net/en
For Mac http://mediainfo.massanti.com/
Once you know exactly what it is you are editing, report back with that information... and your project setting, and if there is a red line above the video in the timeline, which indicates a mismatch between video and project
Last year I transferred all of my old dv tapes to hard disk for permanent storage (with backups). I'm not an expert but I'd suggest if it is possible to use the original camera you recorded on to do the transfer. Unless I misunderstood.
The tapes are DV PAL.
I start a new project in Premiere, choose DV-PAL and capture
No red line in project, and everything looks good in Premiere.
I have a couple of media streamers that play all formats(mpg, images like iso, divx, xvid, avi etc) I have tried so far except these AVI that I have captured this way.
DV Type2 AVI
Multipart OpenDML AVI (5parts)
Note: 7.83 GB unneeded bytes at end of file (!)
Audio - no codec required
Video - status: coedecs are installed
not sure if you need other info from Gspot
If the streamer doesn't play the file, then it doesn't play the file. You'd have to look to the company that wrote that program for help.
Most media streamers do not support dv-avi.
I understand now that the problem is that my streamers do not support DV-AVI files.
