  • Windows Movie Maker DVD will not play in my DVD of Emerson drive

    Burned DVD won't play in my dvd player. I worked on it for three days. I burned a movie on a dvd + rw disc. The film will play on my computer but won't play in my dvd player. I get "Disk error" on the screen and the disc may not have playback function. What is the function of reading and how I can change my download? I lived all the concepts of self-help, but none of them fit to my problem. I have Windows Vista Premium and have tried using Windows DVD Maker. I called the manufacturer of my drive and they said I need to finalize the disc. How can I do to do this with Windows DVD MAKER?  I read articles about video editing, but when I went through the steps that I wasn't even offered the possibility to publish the video. My brother uses the same discs when burning movies and I have no problem playing his films. What I am doing wrong?

    Hi BrookeMcCulley,

    Welcome to the Microsoft Answers community.

    On some of the DVD player, you will not be able to play DVD + RW discs.  You will need to use DVD + r (read DVD) drive and check if it works.

    You can also try to use another brand of DVD disc and check.

  • Windows Media Center visualizations will not work

    My Windows Media Center visualizations will not work for some reason any. its been like that for a while.
    When I listen to music and want to see my office shows that the program is still underway
    I thought it has something to do with the visualizations I instaled on Windows Media player
    (like ribbons and Upcube)
    I tried to remove them, they either come back or he will constantly ask me to go to it

    my system is portable

    I missed a CD command before the directory (since corrected) so orders would be as follows:

    CD C:\program files\windows media player\visualizations\

    DIR

    You'll see the DLLs listed here, they are visualizations that have been installed (if the author decided to use directory default visualizations) NOTE: there may also be cases where the author badly spelled directory visualizations and used something like "visualizations".

  • Windows Movie Maker - music is not playing little matter what I do

    I'm making a movie for my best friend for her birthday. I'm trying to use some of our favorite songs as background music. I'm going to and upload music and it is important, but when I put it in the movie and I play it, no music plays. I know that the film plays because my images in the film show the way they are supposed to. The volume on my computer is in place, and I went through all the audio levels and volume. I went upstairs, hit the clip and have a level of hihgh audio in the editing mode, I hit chronology and went to sound levels, and it is up. I even checked the properties of the songs I am trying to use, and they present themselves as a .mp3. When I went on google and other things to see what could be the problem, a page said that even if the music is in .mp3 form and other forms that work with Windows Movie Maker, they can simply not work. However, some of the songs I am using, I have used in other films I've done, and they do not work yet. So I don't understand what the problem is, and I've checked everything. Is there something that I don't check? Help, please! I really need to solve this problem, because I use movie maker for both school projects, and this movie would be amazing as a birthday gift.

    Hi monkeygurlsurfs,

    If you get the sound from your pc in other programs, the problem is not hardware. Did you of updates or Windows updates or any software installed since the last time that your audio worked? Usually, if the audio doesn't work, is it a device driver conflict. Make sure you have the updated driver for your sound card from the manufacturer's website. Also, check your device manager to see if the audio device appears normal (no yellow exclamation point). You can try to perform a check of the filesystem (CFS) to see if there are any corrupt files that Windows can correct:

    The System File Checker tool:

    To determine if the problem you are experiencing is caused by one or more system files that are used by Windows Vista, run the System File Checker tool. The System File Checker tool analyzes the system files and replaces incorrect versions of system files by using the correct versions.

    To run the System File Checker tool, follow these steps:

    1 click on Start -> click on all programs -> click on Accessories -> - click on command prompt, Select run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type your password or click continue.

    2. at the command prompt, type the following command and press ENTER:

    sfc/scannow .

    3. when the analysis is complete, test to see if the problem you are experiencing is resolved.

    If the problem you are experiencing started occurring recently, you can use the System Restore tool. Using this tool, you can restore the computer to an earlier point in time. The tool using System Restore may not necessarily help you determine the problem. When you use system restore to restore the computer to a previous state, the programs and updates that you have installed are removed.

    To restore the operating system to an earlier point in time, follow these steps:

    1. click on Start, type System Restore in the Search box, and then click System Restore in the programs list. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type your password or click continue.

    2. in the System Restore dialog box, click choose a different restore point, and then click Next.

    3. in the list of restore points, click a restore point created before you started having the problem, and then click Next.

    4. click on Finish.

    The computer restarts and system files and settings are back to the State they were in when the restore point was created.

    Try these procedures and let us know how you do. If you're still having problems, we will be happy to help you further.

    I just finished creating a dvd in Windows DVD Maker. He played very well on the PC and burn to my DVD - R Memorex without problem.  However, now that he's in my Toshiba DVD player, nothing happens.  I have a black and white screen with down right a small square box, color.  No display of numbers on reading DVD player.  The Toshiba site indicates that it should play DVD-r.  Need of this DVD to a presentation in a few days.  What's wrong???!!!

    what I had to do was to convert the file to an AVI file that I was able to do as part of the utility of movie maker, and then import the file into a dvd creator software utility called (dvd Creator free 2) and then I could read in my dvd player. It is a download free .you corresponds to the URL if you want to give it a try http://www.minidvdsoft.com/dvdcreator/ hope this helps.

  • Windows Movie Maker - file invalid / not found

    I made a movie a few weeks previously registered, get in there a few days later and made more copies. Today, I tried again and I keep getting a message that the file is not valid. I tried opening upward in the creation of DVD and it keeps saying that it has failed. I tried the suggestion of unlicking the box under the sign that says (hide extensions of known file types) - which didn't work. I tried opening the film again and all my imported data is there... just not the movie itself...

    Help, please!

    Yes, it's the same information I read in other forums. I closed the movie maker and tried to reopen the case. I always get an error message that is not valid. I can't find any other file that does not end in MSWMM. After that I closed the error message. All data are available in the media imported section, but the Council of the timeline or history is completely empty / blank - but I know that he was saved several times...

    If the film itself has disappeared... is there a way I can get it back?

    ===========================================
    If you cannot open the MSWMM file in Movie Maker file must
    be damaged. Best bet would be to recreate the project.

    As for the movie... unless you have published (saved) project in the
    Film WMV or AVI format... it was never a real movie file.
    (this would be a clip that would play in Windows Media Player
    and could be shared with others)

  • My movie maker program does not work correctly. How can I download it again, or at least fix it? It's stop of allowing me to record the final sequence.

    Trying to save the profject ended up like a movie .wmv to my computer, it says «save on removable CD...» "but it is actually doing nothing.  He has never done this before.  It is also not working well even to work on project files.  Something is wrong with her, and I would like to reinstall or repair, but can't find it anywhere on Microsoft Download pages.  Any suggestions?

    Movie Maker is installed with Windows XP... There
    not a separate download. Also... it is updated
    with the SP2 of Win XP and Win XP SP3.

    I suspect that the maintenance of the system would
    more to improve the function of Movie Maker that
    He would reinstall.

    FWIW... better run on applications of editing video one
    machine is well maintained and fully implemented to date.

    You may have reached the limits of your system
    resources. Run the error checking, defragmentation and
    Disk Cleanup on a regular basis could help.

    And... disconnect the net and the closing of all
    programs, including your scanner for viruses before
    Opening Movie Maker can free up some resources.

    Add more RAM, increase the size of your
    Swap file and maintain a hard training that
    a 50% or more of free space can help.

    And you can have compatibility issues with your
    source files. Several formats are apparently compatible
    with Movie Maker, but the most reliable choices are:

    Photos - bmp
    Video - wmv or dv - avi
    Audio - wav, wma, wmv

    It is also possible that you have a problem with one
    video driver is damaged or outdated.
