Laptop with IGC is likely the problem, apart from the fact that the laptop probably does not meet minimum requirements, like AT LEAST two 7200 RPM SATA disks and AT LEAST 1280 x 900 monitor resolution.
The other situation is that the codec used is not editable, but a delivery format. Use GSpot or MediaInfo to determine what codec is used in your material.
thansk for the reply. I had a feeling it may have bene down to the laptops hardware spec, which is a little annoying was hoping I could do some work on me videos while I'm travelling, as its a bit impractical to carry a desktop everywehre Thanks for the reply.

- you need AT LEAST 2 drives for video editing, 3 is better

supported video file such as mpeg2 or avi
I have to mirror Harm's second comment here. Not all MPEG or AVI files will work.
Premiere is a professional level editor designed to work with fairly standard camera formats. Other types of video may or may not work. The symptoms you describe are most often encountered when someone tries to edit video that simply doesn't work. If you stick to using footage you shot yourself using a supported camera format, you should have better luck.
Thanks for the help, it was a codec issue. I was given the files in a filetype that Premiere wont edit, so had to convert them. As I was using the converter I used last time I had to do this, I assumed that the settings were the same as that which I used last time and would therefore work, alas that was not the case, turns out I had selected something else from the options available, and have now done that and all is fine .
I am here with the same problem. I have a ´.avi´ file that i want to edit (I can send you the mediainfo) wich only gives me audio, no video when i import it into Premiere Pro CS5.5.
So the advice is to convert the file to DV-AVI Type II w/ PCM/WAV 48KHz 16-bit Audio. But wich software do i use best to convert without quality loss?
This is the media info to the file i want to edit:

If someone could give me some advice for how i can edit this file in any way that would be great!
Is there no one that can give me an advice?
Convert to uncompressed, Lagarith or UT for lossless or take the quality hit. The problem is VBR (variable bit rate) which is not supported.
VBR plays fine in Premiere.
Ok excelent, wether it was the VBR or not, i converted it with VirtualDubMod to Lagarith (see link how to: http://www.foolishpassion.org/vidding-tips/virtual-dub-mod.html) and now its working fine! Many thanks for the help.
Glad that Lagarith worked for you. I have found it to be a very useful CODEC.
Thank you for reporting, and good luck,
Yes, and for those that try to convert their video to Lagarith with for example VirtualDubMod, offcourse have to download and install the Lagarith CODEC first
There are two V1 areas on your video track. Make sure both of them are engaged (turned on) one on each side of the lock. Turn both those on and your problem will be solved. I turned one off unlocking a video track and it took me 2 hours to figure this out. I hope this helps someone!!!
