Sony Vegas Pro 13 on Windows 8.1. No .wmv, no .avi either.
I've tried everything! What can I do? Thanks!

As there are plenty of VP13, and now growing Win8.1, users out there and on the face of it, your choice of Formats are just plain vanilla, and really you shouldn't have an issue, you have to consider:

1] Your install of VP13 needs reinstalling. BTW: What BUILD of VP13 are you using?

2] Your material is corrupted.

3] Your Win 8.1 is at fault.

4] You have little system space/hard drive space.

5] Do a Re-Boot?

Simple.....

Hi, Graham, and thanks for the answer.

The problem is fixed: I installed a new BUILD, the 310 one.

Now is running perfectly! Thanks again.

You're welcome.

There is a more recent Build? You didn't fancy it?

I thought I would add something even at this late date because this will be a useful thread to look at in the future. I had this problem and sorted it out using some old wisdom I gleaned off a forum somewhere.

The problem was the permissions settings of the Vegas installation folder in C:/Program Files.
I noticed that the owner was not the same as the owner for all the other programs stored in the Program Files folder.
I changed the ownership of the Sony Vegas installation folder to match the other program folders and after that I could drag and drop media from windows Explorer directly onto the vegas timeline.

You need to be logged on as an administrator then you go to the Sony Vegas folder in C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files (x86)
Right click on the folder then on "Properties", then "security", then "advanced" (near the bottom).
That brings you to a dialogue page with the optiop at the top to change the ownership of the folder.
In may case I changed it to "Administrators (KO7\Administrators)", where KO7 is the name of my machine (when you press on the word "change" it will take you to a different dialogue page where you specify who the new owner is going to be)
Before you hit "apply" at the bottom, check the box "Replace all child object permission entries with inheritable permission entries from this object" (this means all the folders and files inside the Sony Vegas directory will now have this new owner too).

Keep pressing OK to get out of it.
Next time you open Vegas you may well find you can drag and drop your files from Explorer right onto the timeline.
