    What format did they start in?

    Final Cut needs Quicktime-wrapped video files to edit natively. You should be able to export your media as Quicktime files in Premiere CS3.

    As far as video codec is concerned, you should match the codec that the camera shot in, if possible. So for example, if the footage was shot in HDV, it should be exported as Quicktime that way.
