    Either:

    A) Start a new project using the video for windows settting (I think it's called this, but basically, don't choose a DV project). And set your project settings to match those of your video (install AVIcodec to find these out).

    or

    B)

    1) Download and install the panosonic DV codec
    2) Install VirtualDub
    3) run the AVI through VirtualDub and encode usingv the DV codec#
    4) import this to your project

    update: just got home and loaded up Premiere - the option I mentioned is under the custom setting tab (change DV to Video for Windows). There may be an issue with the video being only 15fps.
