Mind reader here:
b Everything is wrong about your setup and material.
Start investigating step by step and report back.
First question: Are your PC's turned on?
Preprare for a couple of hundred more steps like this or supply DETAILS.
Do you have any blank spaces between clips in any of your timelines?
Specifically, exactly what codecs did you try?
yes sure, i have many spaces
i tried preesing render files but it stopps after 1 seconds
and there is unknown error message
First, remove all gaps in the Video. If you want "black" just go to the New icon in the Project Panel and from the drop-down, choose Black Video. You can size as needed for Duration.
If you have Clips with adequate Handles, you can re-size your Clips by a couple of frames to "fill" the gaps. If you have things cut perfectly, you can move all Clips to close the gaps.
To find gaps, I use the Home key, then step through a highly zoomed Timeline with the PageUp/PageDn keys. I should see linear motion with the CTI. If you get a "stutter" or a halting movement, you likely have a gap. At a "frame view" zoom, you should be able to see the gap, but some displays might not show them clearly.
You do not want gaps in your video. Sometimes a Project will do fine, but sometimes only 1 tiny one will kill a Project on Export/Render.
As an example, I inherited a Project with 930+ gaps. The previous editor had gotten DVD's to burn from the Exported files. So did I, but to be safe, I removed all of the little suckas'.
If your workflow creates gaps, I'd address how you're doing things, as the workflow can be better.
OK, i removed all the gaps completelty
using the black video u said

>Codecs used in my clips: all required codecs are installed
A codec being installed doesn't really answer the question of which codec it is, though. And it does often matter.
should i write all the codecs i have installed?
i think it is a very long list but if this info is usefull i will do it now...
>Codecs used in my clips: >all required codecs are installed
The question is "What codecs are used in the clip?" not "What codecs are installed on your computer?", although if you have installed codec packs then you're in trouble.>didnt do any updates, didnt even know i can do it
That's just scary. See: FAQ:How do I get updates?

i have the XP codec pack
and thats it...
If the clip is Divx, that might well explain your troubles. Premiere Pro has a tendency to work best with standard camera formats. Divx is a final delivery format, and doesn't edit all that well.
I generally recommend folks use a consumer editor to edit consumer media. I understand Movie Edit Pro from Magix works pretty well.
That explains it. DivX is for watching, not for editing. Use standard codecs suitable for editing. They are spelled out in the manual.
