Fortunately, there are some ways to fix this error and get back to editing smoothly. In this article, we will explain what causes the media pending error, how to resolve it, and how to avoid it in the future. We will also show you how to find your serial number for Premiere Pro CC, in case you need to activate, reinstall, or upgrade your product.

What Causes the Media Pending Error?

The media pending error is usually caused by one of these reasons:

  • Your video files are corrupted or damaged.

  • Your video files are incompatible with Premiere Pro CC.

  • Your video files are located in a different folder or drive than where Premiere Pro CC expects them.

  • Your video files are missing or deleted.

  • Your video files are not fully imported or rendered.

  • Your computer is running out of memory or disk space.

  • Your Premiere Pro CC preferences or cache are corrupted.

To find out the exact cause of the error, you can check the Properties panel of the clip that shows the error. You can also try to play the clip in another media player or import it into another project.

How to Resolve the Media Pending Error?

Depending on the cause of the error, there are different solutions that you can try. Here are some of the most common and effective ones:

1. Disable and Re-Enable the Clip

This is the simplest and quickest solution that you can try first. It works by refreshing the connection between Premiere Pro CC and the clip.

To do this, follow these steps:

  • Place the playhead over the clip that shows the media pending error.

  • Select the clip by clicking on it.

  • Right-click on the clip and uncheck Enable from the menu. This will disable the clip.

  • Right-click on the clip again and check Enable. This will re-enable the clip.

You can also select all the clips in the timeline by pressing Ctrl+A or Cmd+A and do the same thing. This will disable and re-enable every clip in the sequence.

If this works, you should see the yellow box disappear and your clip play normally.

2. Add a Cut or Adjust the Duration

Sometimes, making a minor change to the clip or the timeline can trigger Premiere Pro CC to read the data of your video files correctly. You can try adding a cut or adjusting the duration of your clip by one frame.

To add a cut, follow these steps:

  • Place the playhead over the clip that shows the media pending error.

  • Press Ctrl+K or Cmd+K to cut the clip. Or click on the Razor tool and click on any part of that clip to make a cut.

  • Don't change any of the timing and be careful when you continue editing that there is a cut there.
