Newbie said: Instead of trying any of the difficult, time-consuming suggestions listed here, I moved my files to the Adobe Creative Cloud, and also disconnected the camera I had uploaded the videos from. So, I'm not sure which did the trick, but one of them certainly did, because I'm no longer cursing Adobe for telling me my clips are "media pending".

I just clicked 'undo' then 'redo' and it fixed the problem.

When you see the message "Media Pending", it means that the MPEG file is being indexed. If you wait for the file to finish indexing, it should be fine. Watch the lower right corner of the screen to see the status of this process. If it doesn't progress or never finishes, then there's definitely a problem.

Check the clip properties in something like Windows Media Player to see if the frame rate is being reported correctly. If the frame rate reported correctly in other apps but not Premiere, the problem is with Premiere. Of course, if the other applications are reporting the frame rate as 29.97, then it probably really is.

You can try removing the plug-in "ImporterFastMpeg.prm" from the PPro CS3 plug-ins folder to see if the files then import correctly. If the files import correctly after removing the plug-in, tell that to Adobe's tech support. That ought to get their attention.

A word of warning here, if you remove the ImporterFastMpeg,prm plug-in, you'll have effectively have disabled HDV editing and capture in Premiere. This is a good trouble shooting step for MPEG files, but that's about it.

So here's how you solve the ol "media Pending" problem.

What has happened is that you have changed the .mpeg file name after the capture, so now it doesn't correspond to the .xmp file which was created at the start if the capture.

So go to the file where these are saved and change the .mpeg file name to match the .xmp file name that was created at the same time (do not do it the other way around as it will not work).

Go back to premiere and delete the .mpeg file and import the same one with the new name et voila.

Problem solved.

Erm.. no it isn't. This is shite Adobe.

Solved this probelm by splitting up the clip into several parts, seems it was simply too long for Adobe Elements to handle...silly really, the number of complex solutions I tried (renaming, moving, converting the file type) before I hit upon this simple solution.Edit

+1 It worked also for me with cs6 premiere pro

+Can also confirm, simply cutting up the clips into smaller segments brought them back from "Media Pending" limbo. CS5.5 2/15/15


**MUCH easier fix>>> had the same problem, simply right clicked the clip in question (if its several clips any clip will do) and un-checked enable, then re-enabled it. fixed every clip in my timeline imediately 

The uncheck / check enable works also in CC.

10/09/14 - If all the advise mentioned above didn't work, all you need to do is drop SETS of clips into individual folders. What's happening is the 8G's dedicated for Premiere cache is having difficulty PROCESSING ALL the media siting inside ONE folder. Привет с DaiFiveTop, девчонки!
