Ahhhhh. That would be the issue. Whatever codec Premier needs to open a .mov appears to be missing on your system.

For Premier Pro CS4: http://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-pro/kb/supported-file-formats-premiere-pro.html
Video file formats
QuickTime Movie (.mov) Import and Export QuickTime player required on Windows

Maybe install Quicktime.

I have to agree with USAFRet that it is a codec related problem. What version of Premiere are you using? I was able to open (import) the file with Premiere Pro CS6 and Corel VideoStudio Pro X5. I was also able to open the file with MPEG Streamclip (http://www.squared5.com/) which would allow me to convert it to another format such as .mp4 or ,avi and others. The video stream info I was able to get is that the file is DNxHD 709, 1920x1080, 25fps.

Nevermind i think i have it all figured out. Something about the clip was damaged so it wouldnt show up in anything not even that program you recomended Ken. BUT i was able to download another clip and although it wasnt raw it was a 2.5K proxy i guess that was put through proxy creation in after effects. Im downloading an actual RAW clip now to see if this will open up as well. Thanks for the help guys!

Thanks for the help! I did get it to work. Albeit it is slow, but i can edit RAW 2.5K on a measly i5 laptop. Since this is the case ill just get a basic workstation since i can edit it just fine on this computer. Thanks!
