What VIDEO CAMERA was used to capture from, in what format with which sequence settings using which codec?
This is some basic information needed.
I tried with a simple video found on Web in the size(format) avi and wmv

Premiere has a tendency to work best with video from professional cameras. If you intend to edit videos downloaded from the web, a consumer editor will probably do a better job of it.

The word "probably" should be replaced by "definitely". I don't understand why people want to pay $ 1 K for a program that is not suited to edit crap, while there is freeware around to "edit" this crap.

I won't say this applies to the OP here, but chances are good that a LOT of those asking such questions aren't actually paying for the software.
Because you're right, most of those who would invest that kind of money in such a program are likely to have enough education in video fundamentals to know better.
How's that "Looks good." ?
Media pending is just that, it needs to be indexed. Hang on and it may appear eventually, depending on your computer, if there is no codec issue. A more important isuue is the single disk setup, that is a MAJOR bottleneck and possible cause for instabilities.
