Audio out of Sync in Pinnacle 9

I have a sync problem in Pinnacle Studio 9, when I use MPEG 2 files.
  • I make recordings with a Panasonic DSR-H20 video camera. The resulting files are MPG-2 files.
  • I copy the files to my harddisk.
  • If I doubleclick such a file, it is played in Windows Media Player. Sound is in sync with the video.
So the file is allright. So far so good.

If I open the same file in Pinnacle Studio 9, sound is out of sync.
The problem is already visible in the preview window: if I play a file of 1 minute from the beginning in the preview window, the audio is in sync in the beginning, but in the end the audio is about 5 seconds ahead on the video. So after 55 real seconds the 60 "seconds" of audio have passed and the video has still 5 seconds to go without sound.
If I play only the last 10 seconds of the same file in the preview window, the sound starts in sync, but is drifting 1 second ahead again.

This sync problem is happening everywhere in Pinnacle Studio (I have version 9.4.3): in the preview window, in the edit (timeline) window and also in the final DVD or stream product.

What I already tried...
The Pinnacle support desk advised to re-install Studio 9 and to update the sound card drivers of my HP laptop (with Windows XP SP2), but nothing helped. Finally they said that MPEG-2 is not supported in Studio 9, but this is not true, according the specs on their own site. So now I hope that one of you knows more about this issue.... Please?

i incounter that problem when i still have a 512 ram on my pc, sometimes when you drag clips and tried to adjust, put trans or cut it error occur and some part of the sound is not cut but the video does that problem i already fix by upgrading my old PC to 1G of ram, but still after that smooth editing when you render a 1-2 hour video you'l see that sound is out of sync after 1 to 2 hours of your video, now if you upgrade again or buy a faster pc like i did this will fix the problem again BUT this time if you try to use a lot of effects and trans on your video you will incounter again the same problem ^^

to make it work you should upgrade and make your video simple

all in all pinnacle sucks im only using it to edit simple videos
