Strange problem importing files

Hi Guys

Has anyone ever had this issue ?? I import all my clips using import media in Vegas 10 and I find that one or two are missing .. it creates the SFK files fine but simply will not pull the "missing files" into the project again. I tried to delete the two SKF files thinking they might be causing the problem but it wouldn't let me saying Vegas is using the files??? If I then make copies of the two files so they have a new name then it allows me to import them with no hassles. It seems that it does import the clips but for some reason doesn't make them visible cos if I open a new blank project it brings them in fine. Is there any reason it would bring in the files but not show them in the media bin???

Hi, Chris!
Do You use the thumbnail view in the Project media? Then try to clean up all Media Pool Thumbnails. I forgot where they are stored for Vegas 10, for Vegas 13 the folder is c:\Users\<User Name>\AppData\Local\Sony\Vegas Pro\13.0\Media Pool Thumbnails\
I never use the thumbnail view and never loss any file in Project Media but I find similar problem in my work.

Thanks Juris

I actually have 10 and 13 and yes 13 has a Media Thumbnail Folder but none exist in the Vegas 10 folder ..must be a new thing they introduced after 10 upwards. Bummer ... I wonder if 10 has a cleanout option??
