i am getting this message every time i try to import a video into my windows movie maker program...






these files will play in the windows media player but not in the movie maker program.

i have a few different video on my desktop and some files i did import into the movie maker program about a week ago and now those same files will not import.

anyone got a clue about what i need to do to fix this problem ?

Try rebooting your machine and renaming the files.

that might help

thanks for the advice Utopian Penguin,

i already tried rebooting, and i just tried the rename trick but , nope it didn't work.

i don't think it can be a codec either because i had this file in the wmm program about a week ago and now it won't import all of a sudden.

weird

At this point the only two suggestions I can make is run your antivirus with updated definitions and or convert your files to the wmv format.
format factory

Try making a new project and then try to import those files your having trouble with.

OK three suggestions.

Heres where you can down all the latest codecs

codecs

Maybe reinstall WMM after that

You can also do basic file joining in FF as well.

Enjoy.
