I am running the Vegas 8 trial (Build 179). I cannot get it to import the AVCHD files from my Sony HDR-CX7 camcorder. In fact, Vegas will not allow me to drag and drop AVCHD or MPG files copied from the camera.

I can drag AVI files to the timeline or project media window with no problems, however.

I have copied the files from the camera using the Picture Motion Browser as the Vegas help file instructs.

Is there some extra step to prepare files from the camera to be accepted by Vegas 8?

The error I get when I try to drag and drop says:

"None of the files dropped on Vegas Pro could be opened."
