No audio problem in Adobe Premiere when clip dragged to program window???

    Hi All - hope you can help. My system is Intel based running WinXP with
    Premiere 5.5.

    Problem is as follows:
    1) I import an .avi video clip recorded on my Panasonic videocam into
    Premiere. I actually captured it in Ulead VideoStudio 7 'cause I find it
    much simpler to use.
    2) I drag the clip into the source window and it plays fine.
    3) I drag the clip from the source window (or from the library bin) into
    the program window. Both the video and audio clips show up fine, but when I
    expand the audio track there is no waveform displayed and when I preview it
    all I get is silence. This is not a universal problem, as I can preview
    sound on many other arbitrary 3rd party .avi & mpeg clips that I have lying
    around on my machine. When I view the problem clips in MS media player etc.
    they play back fine.

    Any ideas why the audio is not showing up?

    I'm thinking its maybe due to one of 3 things:
    1) A misiing audio codec in Premiere?
    2) Something to do with DV1 vs DV2 avi capture formats?
    3) Something to do with audio bit depth?

    I'm trying to make a video for a mate of mines birthday and am tearing my
    hair out!

    ta in advance.

    You should upgrade to premier 6, 6.5 or pro,
    that should solve codec problems, unless you have some kind of proprietary
    capture card...

    HHmmm, I've already fought that battle with myself. I would dearly like to
    but its been an expensive Xmas and I've alredy got an expensive 3DSMax
    upgrade ahead of this one on my wish list ;-)

    I was hoping it was something simple that I had missed in the settings

    Oh well, I'll just keep experimenting I guess.

    Thanks for the advice Jack.
    Happy editing.
