Well, if you did read it, you would get a pretty good understanding of how to handle with the source footage...

Nontheless:
What video codec are the video files encoded in?

Premiere, like anything else on your computer, won't be able to open a video file unless you've got the codec it uses.

uhh well from the site that i got them from, it said they are all in DivX format, and you need the DivX codecs to play them. they do play and everything, but when i try ti import them, i get this exact message: "Unable to open that file. File uses an unsupported compression format"

Then use <a href="http://virtualdubmod.sourceforge.net">VirtualDubMod</a> to convert the clips you need to HuffYUV. Premiere has no problems working with that.
