Thank you for helping ...... I wish I was more technical...... i did what you said and found the import media button but it is now in the wrong place ... it is not where the other buttons I mentioned are, and I don't have the window where my media files usually are..
@arthur1 how about this, close Vegas. Hold down the 'Ctrl+Shift' keys then double left click on the Vegas Pro desktop shortcut. A small window will pop-up, click on 'Yes'. This will then load Vegas with the default installtion settings and layout.
