Hi Steve ... I downloaded the codecs that you suggested. The audio was a little better but it still cut in and out. I connected the camcorder to my TV and the audio was fine. I also uploaded a portion of the video to Photoshop.com just to see if the audio was ok. And it was.
What do you think could be causing the sound to cut in and out when editing in PRE 7?
Thank you for your help!!
Since it used to work but is now giving you problems, I'd suspect your computer just needs some maintenance. It could be fragmentation or junk files on your hard drive.
Try running Deep Care with my favorite free program, Advanced System Care.
Then give your hard drive(s) a good defragmenting.
BTW, are you editing on your C drive or do you have a second hard drive on your computer? If you do, ensure that that drive is formatted NTFS and not FAT32, as they care from the factory. And be sure to do a good defragmenting on it too.
