"Since Adobe Premiere 6.5 does not work with Windows 7, I am testing out trial PPCS4 to see if it is compatible with my hardware before I buy, but I can not get it to work. Does Premiere Pro CS4 support Sony HDR-CX150 file types? If so, how do I get this to work? Received error message "unsupported format or damaged file" while trying to import AVCHD (m2ts) and MPG2 files into Trial PPro CS4.
Camcorder: Sony HDR-CX150
Computer: Sony VPC-F11LFX/B - Intel Core i7-720QM, RAM 4GB, Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit."
