Is what camcorder compatible with Windows Movie Maker on Vista Home Premium?

I'm in a bit of a dead end.  I have to make and edit a film which is mostly clips stored in Windows Movie Maker on my old computer which has VISTA Home Premium/64 bit.

In most old clips (that are compatible), I have to shoot some new images.  My recent purchase of a Sony camcorder does not work.

Can anyone recommend a camcorder that will have files that are compatible with Windows Movie Maker?  My Sony clips seem impossible to move outside the Sony software so I can't convert them.

I'm ready to buy a new camera.  I just need something compatible.  Would even buy a used one on E - Bay as long as it will work with the old Windows Movie Maker.

Can anyone help?

If its on a memory card to buy a card reader, if you do not. Or if you connect the cable it should allow you to see what on it

Most camcorders these days support MP4. If it is HD. The new Panasonic cam I have here, I think that it records in MP4. Since it is 1080 p

The old who is also Panasonic may have been old, (it is not HD), but it had a firewire port.

But I think that it saved videos like WMV (I mean I don't know that it loaded in Movie maker, when I got it)

You will have either to buy a program that supports MP4, or use a video conversion program and convert to WMV

    =======================================
    If you're running Vista Home Premium or Ultimate, you can
    be able to import files into Movie Maker directly from the
    DVD... the files you want are in the VIDEO_TS folder and have
    a VOB extension.

    Also... the info is maybe worth a visit:

    DVD Movie Maker 6... in Vista Home Basic

    When you insert the DVD in your DVD player... close
    all the windows that can open and then go to... Start /.
    Computer... right click the icon for the DVD player
    is in, and then select Explorer.

    The files you need from the DVD are the. VOB files.
    You will find them in the VIDEO_TS folder. Copy them
    in a folder on your hard drive.

    First... just try to rename one of the. VOB files to
    . MPG or .avi and see if it will matter in Movie Maker.
    If import works... drag the file to the timeline and
    Economy/publication it to .wmv or .avi format. Then...

    (FWIW... you can probably play the files renamed

    If you are unable to import the files they need to be converted
    another .wmv format would be a good choice.

  • HP Pavilion a6110n PC stops when you publish movies with Windows Movie Maker

    I use Windows Movie Maker to try to "Publish movie" for playback on a computer (creation '. ") WMV files") [200 MB of files created for 15-minute video].  When I run the app, even by itself, with no other applications running, the PC fan starts strong.  If the computer has served for a period of time, the computer will be completely and suddenly close, before ending the video creation.

    If I run Movie Maker when you first start up the computer, the machine can finish successfully creating the film without stopping.

    I don't know what I need to upgrade or replace.  The CPU is overheating?  Or the video card?  Or both?

    If I need to replace the fan, any suggestion would be appreciated.  (I'm talking a CPU fan? Graphics card fan? or what?)

    My PC Specs:

    Windows Vista Edition Home Premium SP1

    4 GB memory

    320GB SATA Hard Drive - 40GB available

    AMD 64 x 2 Dual Core processor 4400 + 2.30 GHz

    Hi, Yes this video rendering really puts a load on your cpu!  The first thing that comes to mind, and the easiest to fix, is simply clean up the inevitable dust bunnies that accumulate inside the tower.  Have you already checked for that?  If this is not the case, remove the side panel of the tower and clean all the dust, especially around the heatsink from the processor.  Compressed canned air works very well for this.  Here is your product guide that shows how to remove the side panel: a6110n be sure to unplug the power cord from your machine before you start on it!  And let us know what you found.

    In addition, I think that you may know this already because you have taken the trouble to include in your listing, but your hard drive is too full.  Vista is a resource hog, memory and available disk space.  He needs a lot of space to work.  And if it doesn't have enough room, it makes your memory and cpu have to work hard.  You ran a disk clean up lately?

    Start button-> computer-> right click on drive C: Local-> properties-> click "Disk Cleanup".  A pop-up window appears.  I put a control over everything on the list.  Then click on the 'More Options' tab at the top of this window, look under "system restore and shadow copies ' and click on 'Clean up '.  Which may take several minutes if you have not done before.  When it's finished, go back to the top of this window, click on 'Disk cleanup' and click the 'OK' button at the bottom of the window to remove all the files that you checked.  You must THEN run a defragmentation.

    In my opinion, and depending on how much space you freed up with cleaning the disc, you will need to spend at least 50 GB of your data files on this hard drive and maintain.   And then you need to add an additional hard drive to your system.  Many options for this just depends on your exact needs.

    in any case, it's my ideas.  If cleaning the dust bunnies and the hard drive does not resolve the problem then perhaps someone else on the forum will be able to helpl with more technical type suggestions.  I think they're going to need additional information about your system, however.  For example, I noticed that you added 2 GB of RAM.  And you mentioned something about a graphics card fan, but your machine came with integrated graphics.  Also added a video card?  If so, exactly what video card do you have installed and have you also changed the power supply?  Any other changes to your machine to factory specifications?
