I have tried to import some footage which is (according to AVIcodec)

File: 5.77 GB (0.00 B), duration: 0:00:00, type: MPG, 1 audio stream(s), quality: 75 %
Video: 0.00 B, 6200 Kbps, 25.0 fps, 720*576 (4:3), MPG2 = MPEG 2 (SVCD/DVD), Supported
Audio : 0.00 B, 384 Kbps, 48000 Hz, 2 channels, 0x51 = Mpeg-1 audio Layer 2 [0xc0], Supported

The footage plays fine in Videolan & Windows Media Player but in Premier Pro CS3, either the source or the program monitor I get the screen full of foreign words.

NO hang loose, I loaded it into PP CS3, went off, came back a couple of hours later & the footage is now their???

Anyone got any idea why initially it wouldn't show the footage & then it did?
