I think you’re talking about ffdshow.
Can you use one of the diagnostic utilities here
and report to us what it says about the ORIGINAL files you’re trying to import into Movie Maker? reply

We’ve just bought a Disgo Video Plus which records .avi files and wouldn’t work with Windows Movie Maker because it said it didn’t have the correct codec. Ticking the download codecs autmatically box in the options window didn’t help, however, after reading lots of posts and the windows help files I found I needed to download the Xvid codex.

I found the Xvid codec at as suggested by microsoft and downloaded it from:

Now it all seems to work fine.

I hope this post helps save people having to do the two hours research it took me to find this out. reply
