There is a way, but its very hard long complicated and sarcastic.

I had the same problem and i'll tell you what the person told me on how to solve it.

Rename the file from ****.avi to ****.mpg. Then open it with ab prem.

Don't ask me how it works, the contents of the file are exactly the same, but it must be the aproach in how to read it that changes.

The way i had to do it before this was open it up in the canon video software supplied then export it again. Tis ways alot easier.

Best of using a batch re-name program where u can rename all .avi's to mpg to save time.
