  • 1. M4P files converter
    I make lots of video montages with the pictures my kids take. Everything is very simple using PS3 and MM2 except for adding the music. We get all of our music from iTunes which, of course, comes with DRM on an M4P file. I have been wasting CD-Rs burning then ripping the songs to WMA. Does anybody have a better way to do this? I am not asking to do anything illegal as I am not selling the music or giving it to other people. It is music I bought and want to continue using for myself - just not in iTunes or on my iPod or anything else that starts with a lower case "i".
  • 2. Editing Images
    Does anyone know if it is possible to apply a "fade out" (or any other) filter to all images in a storyboard at once, rather than have to select each one individually? I'm also wondering if there is a way to change the clip duration from a default of 10 seconds to 4 seconds, without having to start from scratch and re-load all of the photos to the storyboard... Thanks!
  • 3. editing clips
    How do you edit clips so they play backwards
  • 4. capture problem
    I'm trying to capture from a Sony DCR-IP7 MicroMV video camera and a 1394 Firewire OrangeLink board. It captures OK with Studio8, though not with Sonic or ULEAD. When I try to capture with MovieMaker2, I get an Unspecified Error message, and can go no further. In Control Panel, System, under audio and video devices, it shows it as working normally. What can I do now?

I have several problems with Windows Movie Maker.  I have a Sony HDD 
camcorder and downloaded several clips.  I want to edit one of them.  I can 
import the file into moviemaker, but there are a few issues.

1. On the screen to the right, where it appears you should be able to play 
the clip, there is no video.  While messing with the codec option, I was able 
to get audio to play at one point, but never video, and I haven't been able 
to get the audio back.

2. When I try to drag the clip down to the storyline at the bottom, the 
program just up and crashes, no error message really, just the typical "has 
encountered a problem with" pop up.

Any help?

Oh, and I did do the hardware acceleration change also, no help.  I renamed 
the matching codecs, no help.

You don't need to 'fix' things.... do file conversions before importing. See 
my Cameras and Capture Devices > Types > Hard Drive page.

Windows XP, fixed it for about a minute. This has been going on for days
now. Is there somebody that can tell me what works and what I can do? Please

3.Tried to re-install XP to 'fix' problem - now I'm in a fix

When I received a used computer(sold with XP installed and key), it seemed to be running OK, but then I decided to run disk cleanup and the machine immediately crashed over and over. I somehow got it running, ran a check of the hard drive that indicated no problems with the drive. Then, since I figured there must be a flaw in an XP file causing the crash when I ran disk cleanup, I decided I should try to re-install the operating system. Since I had the Product Key but not the CD for the 'new' computer, I decided I should use my XP Upgrade CD (and product key) that I had for my old computer. Well, it started to run the install, and then generated an error message and shut down.  Now, even with a boot up in Safe Mode, I get a momentary XP opening screen, and then it goes black and hangs up.  So, I guess it time to surrender and give it to an expert?...or is there a reasonably straight-forward way to get the system working again?


Im using a dell inspiron notebook with 894mb RAM and vista premium. I 
connect to either a wireless network or through an ethernet cable (wall to 
computer, no modem) the internet is supplied through my university.
My internet was running really slow so about two weeks ago, i started 
deleting a bunch of stuff i thought that i didnt need, but as it turns out i 
deleting some important system items. I computer tech did an image factory 
reboot on my system and re-installed my hardware. 
Everything was great until about a week later when my internet was running 
very slow again so after about 4 hours of searching through blogs for 
solutions and trying them out, i found that deleting two specific updates (i 
forget which ones now but one of the kb9's) my internet was fast as ever 
again. So i turned off the automatic update system all together.
So now its been about a week and a half, and im back to slow internet (takes 
2-3 hours to buffer videos that took 2 secs before, pictures take 3-4 minutes 
to load, and the whole system is just generally antagonisingly slow) I also 
have firefox and that is just as slow if not slower than IE 7
I have done a system restore
MS config to basics
Extended diagnostics (didnt show anything)
Ran internet with no add ons
uninstalled norton anti virus
downloaded all updates
turned phishing filter off
turned off all firewalls

..pretty much everything under the sun and nothing will work. If anyone 
knows anything that can help or any suggestions PLEASE PLEASE let me know. i 
need all the help i can get!! Just my luck for my computer to crap out right 
before final exams :) haha.
Thanks alot

5.System Restore did nothing to fix the problem

2 days ago I tried to right-click on Internet Explorer to see the properties 
in order to delete the history. I was unable to open up the properties. Since 
then, other weird stuff is happening and I my IE connection keeps getting 
hung up, I keep having to manually shut down the computer, among many more. I 
tried to install Mozilla Foxfire before the problems started to occur and 
uninstall IE but then all of this happened. I uninstalled Foxfire thinking 
that was the problem to no avail. I then tried System Restore (to many dates) 
but that has not fixed the problem. Any help would be really appreciated. I 
don't want to have to pay the Geek Squad to come out... too expensive;)! 
Thank you in advance, Hillary
