Please fix the 'Importer reported a generic error'. (File import failure)
How hard can that be? It is so frustrating to see all my clips go offline every single time. It has been happening since so long. Adobe has rolled out at least 2 or 3 updates but could not fix this simple bug? There is absolutely no solution for this? I am having to rename every single clip to reconnect. You know how annoying that is?
Generic error means that an error occurred, and that it wasn’t one that Premiere Pro understands. That same symptom can come from a broad variety of causes, so this is in no sense a simple bug.
If you can reproduce the problem in current builds of PPro, please contact Support and provide step-by-step instructions on how to reproduce it; we’d be happy to help.

It means the codec is not supported. What codec did you try to import ?
