Timecode doesn't transfer on CF import

I have yet to be able to figure out why all of my HDV m2t clips that I import from Compact Flash do not transfer the corresponding timecode in my NLE (Premier Pro Cs3 w/Matrox RT.X2). Every clip starts with 00:00:00:00. I know I am recording continuous TC while shooting, I am using record run. Timecode transfers fine when capturing from tape. I start the TC using 1 hour for the first tape/CF card, 2 hour for the second tape/CF card, etc. All the settings in CS3 seem to be fine and like I said, tape capture does indeed transfer the corresponding TC. I use the Sony Recording Unit Utility to import all of the CF clips (it automatically joins the long clips together, the ones that go over 21 minutes long). Let me know how to import the correct timecode for clips from my CF cards? Thanks.

I haven't had any trouble w/ TC & FCP. I don't know Adobe too well, so if you're not getting much help from this forum, maybe take a peek in the Adobe editing sections. See if anyone else is having TC trouble w/ any type of card transfer from cameras like the Z7, or AVCHD cameras like the Canon HF# or HMC150.

Good luck.
