Okay, here’s the deal. I’ve been trying to make a darn video with my Windows Movie maker for somewhere around 3 months now and I’ve looked all over the internet trying to find a way to fix it.
Heres my problem: I can create things up to about 5 seconds, then my movie maker unexpectadly turns off, or the screen “This program is not responding and needs to shut down”. Can someone please tell me how to fix this problem!! reply

I hear ya, Im ready to just buy a mac with imovie on it. This movie maker is driving me nuts! And my camera records in .mov anyway.

Ok Im running a DELL 2.8 with a gig of ram, and i get the same errors you read about all over the net/youtube after about 10-15 sec or 5/6 clips movie maker becomes very unstable, lags hard, hangs and crashes. sometimes it thinks a mp3 is 2 or 3 times longer than it realy is, classic save error of not enough disk space or files moved. reply

I just copied a VHS onto a DVD and now would like to make a highlight tape from some of the clips on the DVD. When I try to import the DVD inot Windows Movie Maker I get this message:

The file D:\VIDEO_TS\VIDEO_TS.BUP cannot be imported because the codec required to play the file is not installed on your computer. If you have already tried to download and install the codec, close and restart Windows Movie Maker, and then try to import the file again.

The file D:\VIDEO_TS\VIDEO_TS.IFO cannot be imported because the codec required to play the file is not installed on your computer. If you have already tried to download and install the codec, close and restart Windows Movie Maker, and then try to import the file again.

The file D:\VIDEO_TS\VTS_01_0.IFO cannot be imported because the codec required to play the file is not installed on your computer. If you have already tried to download and install the codec, close and restart Windows Movie Maker, and then try to import the file again.


After I click OK on this message I have two clips... the first 54 seconds of the DVD and the Last 26 minutes... but nothing from inbetween (it’s about 109 minutes total)

Can someone please help me??? reply
