I am working in Adobe Premier Elements 10 on a video project. Before burning a sample DVD, I could drag and drop video clips from Elements Organizer 10 into the project with no problem, just like the file management instructions say. Now, I am in Premier Elements doing some more editing on the same project. I want to add more clips to the project. When I go to Elements Organizer and click on the file and start to drag, I get a circle with a line through it telling me I am blocked from the drag and drop function. I don't know where to go next. Need help.

I have the Elements 10 and Premier 10 package. When I first started a video project, the drag and drop media function to bring media into a Premier project from Elements Organizer worked fine. I want to add more video clips to an ongoing project, but the drag and drop function will not work. I just get a circle with a diagonal line like a stop sign whenever I start to drag. Need help.

You can drag and drop photos and video clips. You can't drag and drop a slide show file. You have to open the Slide Show Editor and output the slide show as a .wmv file, with all your combined clips and photos in it, into Premier Elements 10 to edit further and combine with your video project.

Got it!
