Do you have the Premiere Elements 3.0.2 patcch?
Version 3 does not work at all with HDV, 3.0.2 has limited HDV support.
You really need to upgrade if you plan on editing HDV with Premiere Elements
If you are going to convert the files then use DV-AVI, not WMV. But I would recommend upgrading and then editing the originals.
