I'm a newbie with Premiere Elements. I am importing multiple file types to make a family year end video and 6 of the files don't have any sound track after importing. They are all .mpg video files. Other .mpg files that were shot directly before and after these files import correctly.  Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have downloaded one of the files I am having trouble with.

So whatever is going on is apparently related to something in the formatting of the file itself.

I'd recommend you convert it to an MP4 using the free download Handbrake. That's the easiest solution.

Steve,

Thanks for the help, that worked great. I'm not sure what it was filmed with, I got it from my son-in-law and I don;t remember what he was using back then. I just upgraded to Premiere Elements 2021 for my video editing software so I was worried when it wouldn't work with some of my files.

I figured there was a way to make it work and you came to my rescue.

Thanks again
