Report back with the codec details of your file, use the programs below... a screen shot works well to SHOW people what you are doing

How many hard drives, and how much space on each?
When was the last time you defragged your video drive?

I believe the file format of the video clips I imported are .mts format. It is from a newer Canon camcorder. I actually got as far as encoding and burning a DVD from the project once which looked good - except the subtitle in the menu was screwed up so I went back to edit the project only to find it was corrupted.
Is there an issue with this file format? I never got any warnings that it did not like the format. I downloaded the Gspot codec utility and will install that - but does it work with mts format?
