Premier Pro CS6 Imported .avi files won't play audio

Thought I should post this up in case someone has a solution.

First, Premiere is the one NLE I am least experienced with. I just started learning it last Spring. I am not a full time editor so I can be missing something really simple.

Today, I tried to import .avi files that were originally captured from DV tape in another NLE several years ago. (I can't remember the name of it but it was put out by Corel)The imported clips play fine in Premiere but they do not have any audio. There is a little audio icon in the bottom right corner of the clip in the library but there isn't any waveform info. The original files do have audio when playing the files in windows media player. This is the first time I have tried to import .avi files into Premiere. I have done plenty of projects importing AVCHD files from other sources without issues.

After scratching my head for a while, I finally broke down and grabbed the 'ol XL2 off the shelf and found the original DV tapes and did an old fashion capture using Premiere. The new .avi files play with audio intact. I hope I can find a solution to this issue as I will occasionally have to use this older archived footage and I really don't want to re-digitize everything.

Thanks for your help! Joe

BTW: Running on a new Dell as of this Spring with lots of RAM on Windows 7

Re: Premier Pro CS6 Imported .avi files won't play audio

Sounds like a missing codec in Premiere, .avi is a wrapper for files made with various codecs, IIRC Corel had its own flavor. Check with GSpot or MediaInfo (both freeware) to see what audio codec is used; if you can add it to Premiere, or convert the files with a video conversion program to something Premiere recognizes, should solve the problem.

Or export the audio from the Corel files using an audio program, save as a .wav, for example, and reimport the converted audio track into premiere....

Battle,

Thank you for the response. I had suspected it was something like that. I will look into adding the codec. Hopefully, I won't have to dig into the old footage too many times. Joe

Re: Premier Pro CS6 Imported .avi files won't play audio

Are you allowing Premiere Pro time to reconform the audio tracks? It shows that this is happening in the bottom right corner of the interface. It can take a bit of time before the audio shows as a wav form or can be heard.
