I tried to insert the next clip required and got the error, I then tried with the next and it inserted fine so then bulk inserted the remaining 50 clips with no problems at all!
Going back to the clip that gave the error... i noticed that the length was wrongly stated at over 26hrs!! (on the browse media file dialog box).
I can bring it into the VS media library ok and play it and crop it to it's actual size of only 10secs. It then inserts to my timeline ok.
I think I thought like Erdna that 20mins is usually the limit to squeeze HD onto a DVD so thought it might be something to do with that limit, although as I said before, I've never seen the problem before.
Many many thanks anyway..I can get on with some editing
Just as an aside, I too use the HDVSplit program to import HDV via Firewire. I think I'd seen your recommendation a long time ago Ken. It's version 0.77 beta and has always worked great. I didn't have much luck trying to use VS's capture method in the past.. getting many dropped frames.

But don't worry too much about it all being too difficult to digest... All of us here started out the same way, but with a little experience with hands-on editing, it gradually becomes much clearer!

Now your problem might be -- as you suggest -- something to do with a corrupt time code. I cannot say. I don't do anything special with my HDV mini-DV tapes, nor with my camcorder (Canon HV20) -- so the video I capture comes as it is from the camera.
You say you reach the limit at around 19 minutes... Is it one specific clip you are trying to insert at that point, or does it happen with any clip you try to insert? Have you tried taking out the last clip or two which you successfully inserted into the timeline, and replacing them with others. Can you then go beyond 19 minutes???
How do you capture your HDV?

However, depending on how many videos you produce and what is in them, those two albums rapidly grow a bit boring. That is where the "teaser" part comes in. As Trevor has said, you cannot use QuickTracks with the other music clips that come with VideoStudio, or your own music. You have to use SmartSound-produced albums, and unless you buy during one of their sales, those albums are not cheap, running at around US$99 a disc last time I looked. I was lucky enough to buy a whole large set of them second hand for a very reasonable price a few years ago when a TV station in the city where I used to live cleaned out its stock, and I have added one or two more discs since then during SmartSound sales. This in turn made it worthwhile for me to buy the stand-alone "pro" version of QuickTracks which is called SonicFire Pro (which is also made by SmartSound). It gives you many more options than QuickTracks -- but again it will only use albums made by SmartSound and not your own music.

We are still confusing Auto Music with normal sound/audio files within the library
Do not select Auto Music icon
When you view the library right of preview screen, this contains Video Photo and Audio clips, make sure the icons at the top are highlighted/selected showing yellow. All types of clips will show
To the left is the Add option, this allows you to create a new library page
Do that and name it Jacks Clips.
To the right of the Add is the Open folder icon to Import Media Files.
Browse your pc for your personal audio files, MP3 or Wav are the most common they should show as thumbnails in the library.
You can of course simply view the Samples library.
To use a clip simply drag it to the timeline, or right click a clip and choose “Insert to”
The Auto Music is a separate option, when you select that option the panel opens below the library.
I do not think you are intending to use the auto music and it is causing lots of confusion.

It does seem a little odd that the problem is with both versions, so I guess its not the software.
It may be a corrupt timecode but don’t think this issue has been reported before.
Add half of the clips, 1 to 50, if ok add another 25% --51 to 75 and so on.
And as far as you know nothing has changed on the PC?
Regarding Fat 32 with Gb sizes in mind, whats the total size of the clips you are trying to use

I agree with Brian that there is some confusion on how to use Smart Sound.
The SmartSound files are in a folder C\programData\Smart Sound Software Inc\
There is no reason to access that folder, they will play from the Auto Music tab.
Smart Sound music files are seperate to your own music files, you cannot add your music files to Smart Sound, nor as Brian said add SDS Smart Sound directly to the library.
I was a little confused why you received the message that "C\users\ test\ documents\Corel Video Studio Pro\video music\cannot be found"
This appears to be a temporary User Account called "test"
Ok lets start again
run Video Studio X5
Select the autoMusic icon (do you get any errors or warnings)
from the Auto Music tab click Play Selected Music--does the music play.
The Auto Music tab has several drop down boxes, are you aware or their use as these can be confusing.
Scope to Owned Titles
Filter to Albums
Sub Filter to Core Foundations
select the music clip from the Track
Press Play Selected Music

There is nothing more satisfying than a printed book to browse through. My camera supplier has even done away with a decent index so I have to search through pages of irrelevance before I can find the page I want.
I once tried to print out the manual from a .pdf file - never again, it took three hours, a second black ink cartridge and six paper reloads and turn rounds for two sided printing!!!

Thanks for the reply. I'm not at home at the min so will have to remind myself of my PC Spec later. What I can tell you is that my spec has not changed recently and my method of processing has not altered either. The last project I did worked fine (albeit that would have been done with VSX6). I even went back and tried to create a project on VSX6 but had the same error. I import my video from a DV tape into individual scene clips (each approx. 5mb to 150mb in size) and then assemble and edit within VS. I did read somewhere that maybe the "timecode of a clip has got corrupt" (???)...but how to find out which one out of 100 or so clips would be a challenge.

Neither can you play them by putting them in the timeline of VideoStudio.
They will only play if you use the Auto Music icon within VideoStudio
and I hope that your use of the word 'registry' is simply a lack of knowledge on your part - the computer 'registry' is a very special part of your computer where even quite experienced users tread very carefully - I hope that you really mean the computer folder system as viewed in 'My Computer' or 'File Explorer'

Can you please update your profile to include your pc specification.
Can you say if your hard drives are formatted using Fat32, this has a 4 Gb limit.
That is the only thing that comes to mind at the moment.
