Sony Picture Motion Browser ignores AVI files

  Aldepep 17:48 01 Feb 2008

Just bought Sony HDR-HC7 camera to replace Hi 8 Sony, and it comes with this Picture Motion browser (v I use XP, SP2. I want to archive old AVI files on tape, but SPMB won't recognise any files which have been edited with Adobe Premiere Elements 2. Strangely it does recognise unedited AVI files captured by Premiere (from Betamax/ Hi8 via ADVC-100) but not those captured by Windows Moviemaker. AVI files are said to among those supported by SPMB (in About SPMB in Help) but below it says "Note: Only media files taken or recorded on a Sony digital still camera or a Sony digital video camera are supported for use with this program." which seems absurd as I believe SPMB is the only way to record from a computer onto the HDR-HC7. Am still trying to get sensible response from Sony, but any help, thoughts or work arounds very welcome!
