Unable to save film on computer with Windows movie maker problem

I tried to record a movie on my computer. But every time I try, it says: "your movie is recorded on a recordable CD, rather than save it on my computer. What is the problem? He started this a few days ago. Also it will never be updated windows movie maker? I am running windows XP, service pack 3

Sorry... I've never seen this problem before. One thing you
could try would be to go to... Tools / Options / Compatibility

Try saving again.

In addition, if there is a CD in your burner... try to remove it.

Beyond that... all I could suggest would be to make a

    Just a few thoughts...

    More than likely it has a compatibility issue
    with the Audio file (music). Conversion to the
    Format WMA before you import into Movie Maker
    may be worth a try:

    There are to many converters available on the net...
    Some are free - some details... the following freeware
    is but one example. :

    (FWIW... it's always a good idea to create a system)
    Restore point before installing software or updates)

    Freemake - Free Audio Converter
    http://www.Freemake.com/free_audio_converter/
    (Windows XP / Vista / 7 / 8)
    (* Read * all * the installation screens... it)
    may be a few items you want to unmark *)

    When you have installed Freemake... Open Freemake
    and drag and drop your music files on the main screen.

    Or... Click left on the Audio button, then navigate to the
    your audio files are saved in the folder.

    Select (highlight) the files you want to import into
    Freemake and left, click on the button 'open '.

    When your music files are imported into Freemake,
    On the left, click on the WMA icon at the bottom of the screen.

    The "Output settings" screen opens.  Choose
    ' Save in ' file so you can find the converted files.

    On the left, click the "Convert" button and the files must be
    converted very quickly.

    It is also possible that the project is too large or
    complex.

    The fix for this would be to create several small
    projects and save each of them in the movie WMV
    format in a folder on your hard drive.

    The collected WMV files can then be re-imported
    in Movie Maker to bring together in a single
    film or they can be imported into DVD Maker
    and each comes a scene on a DVD.

    =======================================
    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
    http://www.Papajohn.org/newsletters/185-DVDtoMM6inVistaHomeBasic.html

    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...
    Re - import new video film for editing purposes.

    (FWIW... you can probably play the files renamed
    in Windows Media Player to be sure that VOB
    file to edit)

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

  • 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

  • How to save a project created in Windows movie maker on a flash drive in. MSWWW format instead of. WMV format?

    If I understand well a previous answer, reinporting a project as mswmm allows rediting if the files are still on the computer.  Also, I am inclined to believe that the files remain available in the pane movie maker collections.  Am I wrong?

    > How to save a project created in Windows movie maker
    > to a flash drive in. MSWWW format instead of. WMV format?
    ===========================================
    When you save the project file... go to... File / save project as...
    Give the file a name (Summer Vacation.mswmm) and choose
    your save location.

    All the files (Photos, video clips, Audio clips) source should
    appear on the USB key and if you have the intention of re - edit the
    project on another computer... it should have the same
    version of Movie Maker. Sometimes a later version of the film
    Machine to will open the files but sometimes won't.
    ===========================================
    > If I understand an earlier answer, reinporting a project
    > mswmm format allows rediting if the files are still on the
    > computer.
    ===========================================
    This is correct. MSWMM is a Movie Maker project file which is
    is useful for a re-release in Movie Maker. And... the source files
    (Photos, video clips, Audio clips) should be available in the
    original locations...
    ===========================================
    > Also, I am inclined to believe that the files remain available in the
    > movie maker collections pane.  Am I wrong?
    ===========================================
    When a. MSWMM file project opens the thumbnails...
    remain available in the Collections of Movie Maker component as
    as long as the Source, the files are available in the places that they
    were imported initially from.

    If the source files have been moved, renamed, deleted or are
    unavailable, the thumbnails in the component Collections
    Movie Maker displays red Xs and the project cannot be
    edited.

    If the source files are still available... it is possible that you may
    Right-click the red Xs and navigate to the current location of the
    the source files and restore the path.

  • I work with Windows Movie Maker; What should I do so that he can import music from iTunes?

    Might be interesting to try to convert the files to the. WMA

    Next, after the download and installation of Format

  • Problem with Windows Movie Maker 2.6 Re: Save movie file

    I get the classic "Windows Movie Maker cannot save the movie to the specified location. Verify that the original source files used in your movie are still available, the location of the backup is still available... "Message ETC, but I have a few additional details that I hope will help someone diagnose what might be wrong:

    * In fact, when I import video files (imports are in WMV format - I have converted to WMV using iOrgSoft Video Converter), he split the file into several clips of different lengths to seemingly without rhyme or reason (done on my old computer with a different version of WMM too).

    Going to the statements in the following format:

    FileName_001 FileName_002 FileName_003 FileName_004... etc.

    Then, I divided the clips if necessary to isolate the parts I want to drag them to the timeline.

    Anyway, through experimentation I found that for each file, I can use all the clips, it was automatically divided in to the last, where I can only use a certain small part of it (the last of them is usually the largest by far) and have it save in a movie file.

    So FileName_001, FileName_002, and FileName_003 will all work and save to a movie file in their entirety, and I can use a smaller portion of the FileName_004 and have it record as well. But if I spent a certain point in this last clip (FileName_004), it will not save.

    So let's just say that the 8 seconds of FileName_004 can be saved in a movie file. If I try just to save 2 seconds of a value of the element after only the second 8 FileName_004 brand, it will trigger the "Windows Movie Maker cannot save the movie to the specified location.

    I too Movie Maker 2.6 running in Windows 7 (64-bit), and sometimes she would not publish the movie. So today after reading things here, I did some research and found this page:

    I removed the Movie Maker 2.6 from my PC and then downloaded and installed Movie Maker 6.0. I opened the last project of 2.6 MM that would not publish the movie in my new 6.0 and clicked on _Publish to this computer_. And it worked. So I tried a larger project which had also failed to publish the movie and it worked again, producing a 40 MB .wmv file.
    So it seems under MovIe Maker 6.0, designed for Vista, works fine under Windows 7, at least if you download the file shown to Movie Maker Blog of Blaine (Blaine Hat!).
    BTW, .wmv files, I brought in Movie Maker have been converted to .flv files using a free Quick Media Converter HD download, that I found at cnet.com. I highly recommend it (and its creator, I sent money PayPal).
