Adobe Prem 6.5 is giving me fits...........


I'm trying to import 19 minutes from tape.What happens is either one of two things:

a)After selecting the file or folder I let go of the mouse and nothing happens or:
b)I see the hour glass and the app locks up and freezes.Adobe stops "responding".Same thing happens over and over and over.

I personally saw this what should be a very basic,simple process successfully done in a studio last night,but after going home I could not duplicate what I saw demonstrated.

1)Is there a way I can allocate more memory to the program or is there a video cache involved?

2)What would prevent a successful capture into AP 6.5 so it can be cut & edited from within?

I tell you what really drives me crazy & perplexes me!I can input the same video clip with no problems to Window Movie Maker 2 which was fre in about 2-3 minutes and Adobe crashes every time!It will not accept this avi file.

3)Should my settings and preferences be set and saved to a certain combination to ensure better results?

A newbie at this.. just trying to make sense out of it.

Thank you.

First you say you are trying to import from tape, but then you say you are trying to import an avi. Perhaps the avi is damaged, or is using a codec Premiere doesn't like. Is it a DV AVI? Have you tried capturing the original footage from tape using Premiere?
