Audio not importing in After Effects CS6

So I just went straight from CS4 to CS6 and I'm loving CS6 so far until I realized that all of the clips I import have no audio. Now when I record videos I know it has audio it plays with audio just fine in other applications but not in AE. Not even the RAM Preview has the audio. What can I do to fix this?

The audio is embedded in the video track, and it's not in a separate audio track... which is what AE needs to have.

The fix: transcode the video from the original acquisition codec & media container to something lossless with a real audio track. Personally, I like quicktime movies in the PNG codec for this.
