Has anyone heard of this wonderful concept of backing up work? Perhaps now is a good time to start. But seriously, i've been a victim of this myself, learned the hard way, now i make backups of backups and project copies on two different physical drives.

Try opening a new project and importing the damaged project into it. No guarantees, but it might get you through.

Cannot say enough about backups. My method is to version my projects at intervals during the development process. I'll start with "myproject-1.pproj. When I get to a point, like finishing the basic cutting, I'll save it ast "myproject-2.pproj. I'll also "Save a Copy" several times along the way too.

Go directly to the HD folder where your project folder is located - Double click on the project icon to open up the Premiere project from there.

Also try opening the numbered project versions in the autosave folder.

Adobe Premiere interface must be closed down before doing this.

Why don`t you search this forum first? "Reprinting" my reply from one of dozens of questions like this.

You might try to open your damaged project file in a little app called XML Wrench (XML:Wrench - The simple XML Editor) and run "Check if well formed" command there. Chances are there are jut some maformed links to media (garbage characters or so). This has saved my projects more than once.

Hope this helps.

PPro2 and CS3 coexist with no problems in my experience. Just be aware that once you save a project in CS3, it can't be taken back into CS2.
