I meant that I think that it's odd that it gives the files once extension on capture and a different one on export.

I'll make a note of that when I pick up a TB drive. I've got an eSata port on my laptop.

I'm thinking that the issue lies exclusively within PPro, since the problem (the sound not being synced with the file, and occasionally duplicating) don't occur in the Vegas demo or VLC.

Well, yeah, as I mentioned way back in post #10, Premiere is a known resource hog and when you have a system that's just on the edge of acceptable, you'll have problems in Premiere that you might not have in other SW... as you are seeing. Fix the other problems and Premiere will likely behave better... but why do that when you can just switch SW to a less demanding NLE?

No, the issue is that your notebook is underpowered, mainly in the disk department. For HDV editing you need 3 disks or more. The problems are further aggravated by using 2.0 under Vista, an unsupported OS. Had you used XP, you might have gotten less problems. Had you upgraded to 4.1, again you might have gotten less problems.

But the cumulation of sub-optimal components (disk, OS, old version, etc.) lead to far from desirable results.

You can't compare a player like VLC to an editor. That is like comparing a client in a supermarket doing his shopping and running a supermarket.

See my post belowfrom the HD editing forum and see if it is similar. I disabled antivirus during editing and index searching and it solved my issue 99%. Is you video playing back fine while editing?

Video was playing back fine, it was just that the audio was delayed and/or repeated at point.

Anyway, I've since tripled the cache on my HD, moved on to Vegas 9.0 (which is taking some getting used to, but at least .mts is native to it...), and haven't had any issues yet.
