    erm, win movie maker is not being very good. It did not recognise a wmv movie I wanted to edit and my daughter says it wont work on her movies, and she is a bit of an expert with these.

    edit: just installed wsin movie maker 6 - seems to be working

    Not sure why that is happening but the reason may be that those movies were created using WMM 2.6 which may have a codec that did not exist when 6.0 was first introduced or it may have discovered an incompatible filter during the installation process:

    In addition, any video that has been "massaged" by a third-party video converter, prior to being opened by any version of WMM can also exhibit the behavior you describe "if" the wrong and/or incompatible conversion options were selected. So, have you tried WMM 2.6 on those videos in question?
