Missing still photos Vegas Pro 9 64bit

I'm using the latest Vegas Pro 9 64 bit to make videos of mixed AVCHD video and jpg stills and I've encountered a strange obstacle:
Jpg's come into the edit timeline fine until I also add an AVCHD clip -- then additional jpgs (the same jpg's) come in as red-filled blanks, remove the AVCHD clip and then the additional jpgs come in fine.
I can render the AVCHD clips OK and jpg's OK but the mix is erratic and often renders blanks for the jpg's.

Mixed jpg's and AVCHD clips edit and render fine on the same machine in Vegas Pro 8.

What am I missing or is this a bug? Any help would be appreciated.

It is a well known, and oft discussed issue.

I don't know about your future needs, but for similar issues I've encountered I just went back to 8. It's just too much for me with Vegas 9.

I went back to 8 also, it works.

I could work around this problem in 9 by rendering the AVCHD clips and then mixing them with stills, I wonder if it would give some advantage with large stills (more resolution for crops and moving around within the still)?

I expected more from Sony, especially not backsliding.

I had the same problem. I had about 60 jpegs that had to be in a slide show. All of a sudden about four went Red on me. I deleted them and then imported them again and it seemed to be fine.

Kinda annoying though. I had always thought of a jpeg as about the *safest* thing you could import to a timeline. I dunno what's going on with Vegas these days, it's like they put Rodney Dangerfield in charge of programming.

Crazy

I got very erratic behavior with jpg's, sometimes red, sometimes not. And sometimes everything looked OK until I rendered and then some stills showed as blanks (black) in the rendered file.
The only reproducible error I could ID was the one I described in my OP.
Very frustrating!
