I don't think Tech Support will help with something that old... current is version 10
My GUESS is you have Win7 and version 4 is simply too old
As far as using PPro CS3...

Convert your SD files to DV-AVI Type II with 48KHz 16-bit Audio
It's works the same in version 4 as in the current version.
Put the DVD in your computer's DVD drive.
Start a new project. Make sure that you've selected the project settings for a DVD/Hard Drive Camcorder.
Select Get Media/From DVD and browse to the footage on the DVD, then select the option to download with the Media Downloader.
Though John makes a good point. Version 4 was designed for Vista 32-bit and may behave strangely on a Windwos 7 64-bit machine.
Thanks for writing.
Maybe I can download a program to convert my DVD to a format that I can
import to Adobe Premiere Pro CS3 - the program that I have.
Adobe Premiere Elements is easier to use but I cannot install it in my new
Best Wishes, Sue
I don't really know the format of the DVD I want to import - and I can't figure out what it is. Do you know how and where to look for its properties?
I am guessing that it is in a format that is not compatible with Adobe Premiere Pro CS3 - but I don't really know.
I was told that Adobe Premiere Elements 4 could probably open the DVD, but I am not able to install Adobe Premiere Elements 4.
I get an error message.
Why? I don't know. I have Adobe Premiere Elements 4 on my old computer, which tells me that I don't have enough disk space to use it.
My computer has Windows 7 Ultimate and is a Dell Laptop E4200.
I hope someone can help. I need to do a simple editing task, that I used to be able to do on Adobe Premiere Elements 4.
Now I have a complex editing program that I cannot use at all.
Your answers are all in this thread, VF.
Thanks. I managed to install Adobe Premiere Elements 4. Now I am trying to capture the video footage for editing. Wish me luck - it is a process! Sue
