Been working with PP CC since it came out and have had almost no problems. Now I have a head scratcher. I can't drag a video clip from the project panel to the sequence. The audio comes but the video won't. All I get is the close hand with a line through it when I hover over any of the video tracks. The clips play fine in the source monitor but still cant drag it from source to sequence either. Tried this with clips from several projects and cameras but no go. Started a new project, different name, folder and footage, still have the problem.

Make sure you highlight V1 the one on the left side of the track header.
Check the help on source patching and track targeting.
Worked like a charm thanks! Not sure how they became unselected but it works now!
It is the editor's responsibility to make sure tracks are patched correctly with every edit. That said, it should be more persistent. I think the "automatic" source patching may be the thing that needs fixing. Thanks for bringing this up. Please create a bug report here: https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro
Hello everyone, thanks so for spearing your time to answer questions here. You guys are awesome. Please I have a challenge and I need help.
I upgraded to a new laptop cori7 a month ago. Everything was working fine, just of a sudden, I can't drag clips around the timeline, I can't add effects, nor transition, I can't import either. The source and program monitor are working fine. I have uninstalled and reinstalled severally all to no avail. Once I installed, it starts working fine, but as soon as I shut down and put it on, I can no longer move anything around. I've tried everything, I even formated the system, yet. The problem still persists. Same with Photoshop, audition and after effects.
The V1 on on timeline is switched on showing color blue. Please someone help me
Ann, thank you very much for a solution to a silly but head scratching problem. Thank you Eddiemg21 for asking. I, too, didn't realize the "V1" had become un-highlighted.
Thanks, I was having the same issue.
You're awesome, worked great! Life saver!
THANK YOU! Now I don't have to pull out any more chunks of my hair.
thaaaaaaankssss it worked also like charm i cant describe my happiness
Worked many years with PP without problems. I'm in the same situation as @SweetPeaO'Toole. It can't be right at nobody can't find solution for that.
Maybe this will explain it a bit better.
Ann Bens explained it perfectly! You can't forget there are two boxes to highlight in the V1 track. Thanks
After doing the latest updates with CC 2015 this became an issue. Have been working with PP since 2004 and never had this issue. Dont know why its started after the update.
Thanks for the fix
Thank you Ann, big help!
Thank you! I've been tearing my hair out
That did the trick! Thanks Ann.
Why we need two boxes to highlight?
Because an editor might want to place B-roll on V2 or Voice over on A4.
Thanks for this response. It's the second time this has happened. I have no idea why the v1 box on the left deselects by itself. I know I didn't deselect it.
Thanks! Iwas getting desparate trying to transform video to timeline and not been able to do so.
I had this same problem and had to built my entire project from scratch, which fixed the problem. Now my older QT movies won't be recognized as media without running them through the media encoder with a different QT codec.
