I'm having issues importing mpg video files from my hard drive that were created on a Sony DCR - DVD300 HandyCam. LightRoom 4.3 says there is a problem with the file. As I have about 10 years of my life in this format, it would be nice to have LightRoom recognize these files rather than trying to convert them to a format friendly file for Light Room. My editing software [Vegas Pro 11 64] can open the mpg files from this camera with no problem; and any other Windows viewer or player. I was hoping that Light Room would be my go to software for visual media management. As I believe Adobe to be the most preferred software for photo and video editing, I'm sure this would be a simple fix for your engineers. Thanks

Walter, can you post a sample file? Doesn't have to be more than a few seconds, to keep file size down.

Thanks,
Becky
