srt timings change once being imported

I have been using camtasia for a while now and importing srt with no issue at all.

All of a sudden yesterday, I have started importing the srt and camtasia seems to be changing the srt times.

For example 

in the srt file the timings of the first sets are

00:00:00,000 --> 00:02:10,200

00:02:10,200 --> 00:02:12,400

Once i import this file into camtasia it changes them to

00:00:00,000 --> 00:02:10,06

00:02:10,06 --> 

Its messing up the sync completely, like i said never had this issue before just all of a sudden. I have tried several srts to see if its an issue with the actual srt and it is happening with all of them.

Any help would be much appreciated 

Many thanks

they look OK to me

your 1st shows end at 2 min 10 sec 200 milliseconds

your 1st Camtasia shows 2 min 10 sec 6 frames

at 30 FPS, 6 frames = 1/5 sec

200 milliseconds = 1/5th sec

Also, remember that video does not work in milliseconds; it counts frames.  While you can edit audio files (e.g. in Audacity) in millisecond increments, you can't shave a video clip by less than one frame.
