MRC1 and Prem CS3

I'm using the MRC1 with Prem CS3 and Matrox RTX2 and would like to know if anyone is experiencing this problem.

I import the clips from the MRC1 onto the hard drive. Open Prem Project and select all the clips on the Hard drive. There could be over a hundred or as few as twenty. All the clips have video and audio.

Prem import the first 16 clips with audio. The next 7 clips don't have audio. The next 16 clips have audio. The next 7 clips don't have audio, etc. etc.

I can usually get round this by deleting the files without audio and re importing them but sometimes this doesn't work and I can only import them by shutting down and re booting.

I've tried all combinations of importing, just importing 16 and then the next 16 but the first 7 of the second import still don't have audio. No matter what I do, Prem will only import 16 clips with audio and then the next 7 clips come in without it.

I would really like to know if any else is having this problem.
I've posted this on the Prem forum as well.

Hi Peter. I just tested this with 40 m2t files from the MRC1, and they all imported OK into Premiere CS3, audio and all.

Thanks for the reply Richard. Were the clips imported straight from the card, or onto the hard drive first and then into CS3?

Were you using a Matrox Project or just a Prem Project.

Thanks
Peter

Hi Peter. The clips were already on my hard drive, as I had previously used them in a Edius project.

For this test, it was a straight Premiere CS3 project with HDV 25p settings. I don't have any Matrox hardware on my system.

I just use CS3, no Matrox. But on one occasion I was importing maybe 60 or 70 clips at one time. When I imported the files, several had no audio. The same files were also imported into another computer with CS3 a day or so earlier and all imported fine. I did not notice any pattern in the missing audio. I deleted the affected files (20+ files) and re-imported. I think the second time, I still had 1 or 2 that imported without audio. The third time, the remainging files imported properly. I never rebooted during the process.

Thanks everyone for the replies, good (in a morbid sort of way) to know that others are having the same problem.
I posted on DVDoctor web site and Matrox have picked it up and said they would be contacting me so I'll post any further information.
