Stuck on "media pending" since this morning

Both the "Source" monitor and the program/sequence screen are stuck on "media pending". The footage at the original location is working fine and reading smoothly, and my other Premiere pro projects do work fine also.


The problem happened when I move a piece of clip from a sequence to another. Made the whole project unable to read any video file. I can hear the sound of every clip, in any sequence.


I've tried every solution I could find on the internet/in the forum. I am very confused right now. It's a huge project with hundreds and hundreds of clips, but no extra footage was added in the last 24 hours (and i've worked on it a lot since).

Now the weirdest part : After clearing cache, updating my Nvidia driver and restarting everything, I open the project, and I was able to actualy play videos. Worked for 2-3 hours while the new .pk files were being generated. Then, I opened my 4th sequence to work on it (I work on different interviews at the same time so I go from one sequence to another), and the problem came back. Now everything is back to "media pending" for every clip, still can hear the sound tho.


Please help me.
