Working in older project. Dragged Mp3 file into bin (as I always do) and it plays no audio and will not generate a waveform. Convert file to WAV before import and the WAV imports fine. But it still should not behave this way. I am demoing a lot of music tracks one at a time. I don't need the extra steps.
So I created a brand new clean project (nothing in the project at all) and imported the Mp3. Audio comes in fine and generates waveform. Good!
So I import over my older project's bins into this new project and try importing again.
The problem returns - no audio, no waveform.

Sorry about that. Thank you for sharing your workaround. .mp3s, though not desirable to use in post-production, should work in a pinch. There has been a reasonably long-running mystery around the .mp3 filetype that has not been solved yet. I have not been able to solve the issue, but I am investigating. Can you share where you got the files? I am trying to figure out if it's due to the source or a Premiere Pro bug. It's interesting that it works in a new project, but not an existing one. I have not heard that symptom until now. Thanks for telling us. Any additional info might help.
