I have sent a new sample mpeg4 via e-mail.
I will do another to Mpeg2 for DVD.
You will be best in getting VS to view the files so
Do you have Div X installed
You could try that to see if you can then view the clips.
The install does try to install a toolbar browser but I simply deselect the option.
Quick Time should also be installed as a version is installed along with Video Studio X6, but can you double check that you do have QuickTime installed
Photoshop will batch convert Jpegs but I think you have to create an “Action” of the “Save As” process, then use the action in Batch Convert the rest of the images.

Apologies for delay in replying, Thursday afternoon is badminton, got to keep active sometime.
A few options for converting the video clips, that really depends on what you intend to create, are you intending to make a DVD disc, or a video for the internet. (Mpeg2 or Mpeg4)
The sample you gave was quite poor quality, are you able to provide another sample maybe a little longer. As I mentioned I am getting a strange error message on the first frame, would be interesting if other clips show the same.
I simply used an image editor to re-save the image as a jpeg giving it a new name, that seems to remove the Exif details, not 100% sure that is the problem but if you can import them that all that matters.
Most image editors can batch convert, that would be the easiest option.
What image editors do you have?

You may be best to choose Same as Project Properties…
This option isn’t ringing an immediate bell—so when I get home tonight, I’ll make sure that it is selected before I try to make another video file…

I think it's time to take this software up to the next level.
There are some great features in it, but it still lacks the prosumer features that will take it to the next level.
I wonder if anyone from Corel reads this or takes any of this seriously......

So I cast further afield to the processor (an AMD dual core 2.7Ghz device with 4gb RAM) and even turning off the WiFi connection (at the best of times, a slow party line link that could be the source of process delays) did not improve things much.
Then I looked again at the VS X6 performance preference settings and that is the source of the next query in this story. There are 4 hardware acceleration settings under the Preferences/performance tab, but only the Edit item is checked on by default. Turning on any or all of the others gets a performance warning message as shown in this image:
VS hardware accel.jpg
And the questions that arise from this:
1. Why are there 2 identical hardware acceleration items for file creation?
2. If having them all turned on gives optimum performance, why is Edit checked on the only default?

Clearly Video Studio is having trouble reading this sample correctly.
Why we see different properties is a mistery.
I ran it through Media Info and that showed as
Codec – XVID
Fps – 24 progressive
Audio – Mpeg
Using X4 I get a warning on the first frame (Warning : nothing to output BFrame decoder lag) frame is black with white text?
I have no ides what that means
I think the best option would be to batch convert the lot to a more editable format.

** UPDATE **
The files from the Sony camera have a VBR of up to 16000 kbps so I am assuming that I may be hitting that bit rate issue that Al mentioned.

While VS can convert to and from DivX and XVid, the free version of DivX comes with a converter where you drag and drop your, say, mpeg-2 and it is converted to DivX.
