What codec are you using? It's likely it is the MicrosoftDV codec. To get round this, simply export your clips as uncompressed/no codec from Premiere (you can change this in export settings).

You can also try installing the MatroxDV codec and using that instead, but some people have trouble with this. You can read more about that here:
