Cannot Drag Source Clips to Timeline

As per the title, cannot drag source clips to the timeline. I've been using Premiere for years and it's never done this. Last bug was the markers not showing up in the source clips window (that must've got patched because it now works properly). Tried the usual stuff, deleting preferences, and even re-installed - still doesn't work - anyone else getting this?

Try resetting the preferences:

If that doesn't work, try resetting the Workspaces:
Reset a workspace
Reset the current workspace to return to its original, saved layout of panels.
1. Do one of the following:
• Click the Workspace menu icon and select Reset to Saved Layout.
• Choose Window > Workspace > Reset to Saved Layout.

What are your track header controls set to? Screengrabs would help, drag/dropped onto the text reply box.

I don't see any track headers, as the sequence hasn't been created (as I cannot drag a clip into it to start the sequence). However, I CAN drag a piece of video from the media browser into the timeline, which then starts the sequence. I can then drag clips from the source panel into the timeline. It's pretty weird. Usually, I start the sequence with the first clip from the source panel. I have put together hundreds of videos, and it's never worked like this before.

If that doesn't work, try Preferences > Audio Hardware and set Input to None.

If that doesn’t work, try updating or rolling back your graphics driver directly from the video card manufacturer’s site. If NVIDIA, do a clean installation of the latest Studio Driver (NOT the Game Driver).

If that doesn't work, try creating a new project and import the old one into it.

Thanks for your suggestions. I'd already reset the preferences, and even re-installed, but that didn't fix the problem. I then tried your suggestions: 1. Reset the Workspace (that didn't work) 2. Reset the Audio Hardware input to NONE - and that fixed it - how bizarre is that?!
All these years, I've been dragging my clips from source to timeline, without a problem. I've since learned how to create sequences in other ways, but I'm come to the conclusion this is a BUG! Many thanks for your help, and Happy Xmas!

I don't work without importing a clip, so I rarely do what you are doing.

 

But if I close everything in the Timeline Panel - it says "Timeline: (no sequences)" - there are no track headers etc.

 

If I drag from the center of the Source monitor to the timeline, it shows a plus sign as if it is going to add it, but it does nothing. Is that what you are doing?

 

I can drag it to the new icon in the Project Panel and it creates a sequence. But it does not import the clip to the Project Panel.

 

If I drag from Windows Explorer to an empty Timeline Panel, it creates the sequence, and imports the clip.
