I have recently reinstalled Premiere CS5 on an upgraded PC running Win 7 Pro 64-bit (SP1) with i7-4790K cpu and 16Gb ram (of which 12.9Gb is available for Premiere). I'm using a 4Mb Geforce GTX560Ti and four hard drives: 250Gb SSD for OS and programs (111Gb free); 250Gb SSD for Scratch (203Gb free); 2Tb for Media files (1.66Tb free) and 2Tb for Export projects (1.8Tb free).
Old projects and clips that were captured from Panasonic NV-GS400 with Premiere CS3 load and play fine and can be edited without problems. BUT:
(1) With CS5 I no longer have device control for the NV-GS400. DV/HDV Device Control Settings>check status>shows Detected, which I believe means Premiere knows the device is there but can't control it. I've tried all the Panasonic device types that appear in the dropdown list but they all give the same 'Detected' status. However, if I set Device Control to None, I can capture clips OK using the camera controls.
(2) Unfortunately, the newly captured clips will not play back in CS5! I can shuffle through and scrub through the clip, but it will not play. The clips do play in Windows Media, so they do seem to have been captured ok.
I can live with the lack of device control - I love the NV-GS400 but I'll probably upgrade soon, so this is an irritation rather than a critical issue. But I'd be really grateful for suggestions on how to get CS5 to actually play the new clips that have been captured without device control - otherwise I may have to revert to CS3.
Thanks, in anticipation .....
