Sony Vegas AVI Files No Video

I have a Windows 7 64-bit Gateway desktop and I have my Sony Vegas 8 Platinum installed on it.  Whenever I import AVI files into Sony Vegas I could only see the audio.  So I downloaded a Divx and Xvid codec, which solved my AVI problem temporarily.  Now the Xvid codec won't work and I'm back to seeing no video for AVI files in Sony Vegas.  PLEASE HELP!!!

Hi pompom25,

·        Do you get any error message or error code?

·        Do you remember making any hardware/software changes after which the issue started?

·        Did you check if the .AVI files in question, is working fine on Windows Media Player?

As it was working fine before, you can try uninstalling the codecs installed on the computer and then install the latest required codecs and check if it helps.
