SEE THE BUTTON BESIDE THE LETTER "A" ON YOUR KEYBOARD... IT SAYS "CAPS LOCK" PUSH THAT FOR A START!!!!

What codec did you use from windows movie maker?
and quicktime works best with .mov files.....

try using a different codec from movie maker

what it is that your file is saved as a .MOV and needs to be like .AVI . I beilve what i did was search on cnet and typed in convert .mov to .avi, i wont be able to tell you exactly were at this moment but as soon as i get off work i will let you know. what ever you do dont pay i got mine for free.

Windows Movie Maker usually exports as WMV. I don't think AlamDv2 will import these. Try an uncompressed AVI for full quality, or compress it (not DV) for a smaller size file.
